52 casinos will be closed

The Ministry of Finance abolished the licence for two companies running the net of casinos. That means that 52 casinos will do the business no more and the number of casinos in the Czech Republic will be 30 percent lower (129 casinos).

The number of casinos in the Czech Republic is higher than the average in advanced countries. According to the police, the casinos are used for laundering money. Some people are paid to come to the Czech Republic and lose all the money from illegal business in casinos.

The players in casinos in the Czech Republic bet 10,1 billion CZK and won back 8,1 billion CZK last year. The Ministry of Finance has established stricter rules for running casinos in the Czech Republic recently.
