Greek Committee To Debate Gambling Regulation

A Greek parliamentary committee will debate gambling regulation on Friday, raising the prospect that it will decide the future of OPAP’s video lottery terminals (VLTs) or even a potential cut in gambling tax.

A draft law advanced this summer would change the terms of OPAP’s agreement on the numbers of VLTs that must be in operation, from 35,000 to 25,000, and would compensate the Athens-listed gambling giant by extending its contract for a further eight years.
