Poker In Europe – Regulation by EU State

Poker In Europe

Online poker legislation in Europe varies by state. In some countries (e.g UK) online poker is legal and tax-free. Others (e.g. Germany, Switzerland) haven’t legalized it but make no effort to enforce the law or restrict access.

Many states have some internet domain censorship yet grinders have no issues playing on VPN and using e-wallets such as Skrill or Neteller to move their bankrolls around.

Others have regulated poker (e.g. France, Spain & Italy) and state-owned poker sites, with higher rake and lower rakeback (to compensate for operating taxes) along with segregation of the playerpool.

Select your country on below to see which online poker sites are available where you live, with details on taxes, banking, segregation and VPN use.

   

European poker regulation is generally seen as a negative as it lowers liquidity, in the case of country segregated playerpools. Some positives however include bringing legitimacy to online poker, building trust and opening up advertising opportunities.

Talks are currently in progress to share regulated playerpools across EU borders, even cross-atlantic. Looking for somewhere to wait it out and grind on the beach? Check out our poker in Thailand FAQ.
