Croatian Casino and Card Room Gaming

Casino gaming and slot machines are popular in Croatia. Croatia's gaming establishments are strongly tied to the country's tourism industry. The Croatian Lottery (Hrvatska Lutrija) is one of the biggest operators in the country, with numerous slot venues as well as casinos. It is authorized to organize games of chance in casinos without any restrictions. Other domestic and foreign companies may operate casinos or slot halls under license from the Ministry of Finance. The licenses are valid for 15 years. The law specifies that an operator must have start-up capital of at least HRK 1,200,000. Casino operators are required to pay an annual fee of HRK 500,000 per casino. Before 2002, live games were taxed at the rate of 48%. The 2002 Gaming Law reduced that amount to 15%. Gaming machines outside casinos and in slot halls are taxed at 25% and required to pay an annual fee of HRK 10,000 per machine.

Year-round casinos may be established on premises with an area of 400 square meters or more, while seasonal casinos must have an area of at least 300 square meters.

Gaming machine halls and operations outside casinos are also licensed by the Ministry of Finance. A gaming machine operator must have authorized capital entered in a court register in the amount of HRK 1,000,000 and a bank guarantee amounting to at least 20% of authorized capital. The concessionaire pays a monthly levy in the amount of 25% on a base calculated as the total amount of payments received that is reduced by the winnings paid to players.
