Czech Republic Recognizes Licensed Digital Gaming Operators

The casino industry is on the brink of a takeover by the various online casino gaming sites. Traditional brick and mortar casino gaming centres will in the near future give way to the more sophisticated and readily available online casinos. There has always been some form of resistance from industry players with links in the traditional casino centres. A person like Sheldon Gary Adelson, CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corporation, is willing to do everything legally possible to ensure that the U.S does not legalize online gaming sites. However, latest trends predict that it really won’t be long before traditional casino centres are relegated to the back of the casino industry.

The latest country to go in favour of recognizing online gaming sites is the Czech Republic. They recently awarded PokerStars, on online casino site, the license to operate in the Czech Republic. This is good news for all online gaming site operators as such move will go a long way in helping to ensure that other countries follow suit and legalize the activities of online casinos. The UK has legalized casinos online for some time now, and in Canada there is a large population base who play online casinos on a regular basis, without the government dictating what people should do in their own homes says Edward Jones of the website Canadian Online Casinos.

Czech Republic now joins the list of countries that legally recognizes digital gaming operators. The other countries include Gibraltar, Cyprus and the Isle of Man among many others. These are countries that are reeling in huge profits from the legalization of online casino gaming sites.

Countries such as the United States of America are still debating on whether to legalize online gambling or not have their citizens placing illegal bets in other offshore online gambling sites. At the end of every year, huge sums of money are spent by these citizens and they all end up in helping to increase the revenue of countries like Gibraltar and Cyprus where the offshore online casino sites operate from.

In a comment passed by President Donald Trump in an interview with Forbes with regards to the legalization of online casino centres, he said, “It has to happens because many other countries are doing it and, like usual, the US is just missing out.” This is an interview that was carried out 5 years before he was elected as the President of the United States of America.

With regards to PokerStars being given the license to operate in the Czech Republic legally, the Chief Operating Officer, Guy Templer had this to say, “We are very proud to be the first online casino and poker operator to be awarded a license and support the newly regulated Czech market. This underscores our commitment to supporting local regulations and obtaining local licenses wherever possible.”

As more and more countries begin to accept the fact that online casino gaming sites have come to stay, countries with strong opposition to the legalization of online casino sites will have nothing left to do. The only thing that will be left for such countries to do is either to join the online casino train and legalize it or continue their opposition and miss out greatly. Whichever way things go, there is always going to be a single winner and that is online gambling casino centres will get legalized. Just like the industrial era, the takeover is going to be swift after having scaled the strong opposition that
