Casino First for Czech Republic

Czech Republic gears itself up for legalized online gambling with the launch of the country's first online casino.

All change
The winds of change are blowing and online gambling is set to be legalized in the Czech Republic. Ahead of this news, Czech lottery company Sazka has unveiled plans to establish a fun-gaming online casino.

These moves come hot on the heels of a parliamentary vote scheduled for the last quarter of 2008. If all goes according to plan then online gambling will emerge from the shadows. Sazka realizes that once the floodgates have been opened, the market will be inundated with foreign online casinos - that's why they're giving the public a taste of what's to come.

What to expect
All the usual suspects in roulette, texas hold'em, blackjack and poker will be made available - for money gambling. At present there are plans in the pipeline for fun versions of these games but Sazka - which already launched - has said that they're prepping people for the online gambling vibe. The bets will be placed at physical POS (point of sale) spots with identifiers. As soon as the law is passed the websites will be converted for betting purposes.
