Prague Slot Machine Ban Now in Place

Retail slot machines are no longer allowed in the Czech city of Prague, as a measure introduced in 2020 finally has been implemented.

The ban will impact all slot machines across the city, including those spots that have a gaming licence through the country. The removal of games from these locations has been going on since January, and the last of the machines have been taken out.

Online slot machines are still allowed in the country, so punters can head online to get their spins in. That said, the measure that banned retail slots also changed the country's stance on online gaming. Sites used to be considered illegal if they didn't hold a licence and targeted Czech players. Now, all sites without a licence that can be accessed in the country is considered illegal.

With the ban on slots there will now be enforcement action taken by gaming regulators and law enforcement in Prague. Last month an investigation found slots at an illegal gambling hall, which saw machines, cash, and reset keys taken into custody.
