The state wants to regulate gambling

The Finance Ministry will tailor a law to regulate gambling and lotteries. It also is working on a concept of a state policy to limit citizens' passion for gambling and reduce the risk of criminal acts in this sphere.

Last year, the state earned Sk2 billion (€47.88 million)on lottery and gambling revenues. However, the ministry claims that money is of secondary importance in this case.

So far in 2003, Slovaks have spent Sk24.5 billion (€586 million) on gambling and lotteries.
