Greece Preparing Second Generation Casino Permits

Greece’s small network of successful licensed casinos has thrived in the past decade but according to reports emerging from the country, their numbers are set to expand in the new year as the present licences expire and new legislation is introduced.Casinos presently operate in Athens (Regency Casino, Mont Parnes), Loutraki, Thessaloniki, Halkidiki, Xanthi, Rhodes, Syros and Rio, with the first four, located close to the country’s major cities, having by far the highest turnovers.

However, according to the State Legal Council, most the exclusive casino permits issued in the 1990s expired in 2007 (apart from that of the Halkidiki casino) and as a result the Finance Ministry can now allow the operation of casinos anywhere around the country.
