The Slovak Parliament debated and passed a revision to the law on gambling during the sixth day of its current session on Wednesday, December 8. The revised law no longer contains the special category of “casino in a recreational complex”.

The Ministry of Finance introduced this kind of casino, with a preferential tax regime, under former finance minister Ján Počiatek (Smer). The current leadership of the ministry proposed deleting the special category, as well as abolishing the granting of a special kind of individual licence, in order to unify terms of operation for all casinos.
