Hungary Adds Pokerstars To Blacklist (update)

But Full Tilt Poker overseen for the time being

Hungary's Gaming Supervision Department, which forms part of the Country's National Tax and Customs Administration, added numerous PokerStars domains to its blacklist this week but seems to have overlooked Amaya Gaming Group's Full Tilt business at this stage.

Other recent additions allsport365.com, PokerStars and partypoker.com will be blocked by internet service providers along with Sportingbet, Ladbrokes, Betsson, Betclic, Bet-at-Home, Fortuna and Bet365 who already grace the growing exclusion list (see previous InfoPowa report).

New amendments to the gambling law implemented earlier this year still treat remote gambling as a restricted gaming activity but expanded the scope of current permissions to include sports betting and online casino games, in addition to the previously available online horserace betting and online card games. .

Available concessions at the time were of five-year duration and required minimum capital of HUF50m (Euro 160 000). Operators are additionally liable for a 15 percent tax on gross profits, to be levied every two weeks, as well as a quarterly supervisory fee equal to 2.25 percent of the sum.
