Online gambling dominates in Czech market

In 2017, income from internet games was EUR 351 million, while land-based operations achieved an income of EUR 1.26 billion. In the past five years, the income has doubled and the land based operations have decreased by half. Technological development and COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the development.

He should not have used the government's money for gambling, because he should be spending it on something else. He was gambling on overseas online casinos. If he was caught, he would be accused of a crime. His gambling was illegal. In Japan, the prosecution will look into the fact that he used online online casino gambling to establish a paper trail. This is the most definitive way to prove his guilt.   “Gambling is a famously amorphous thing in terms of actual prosecution.”
