Gambling to be prohibited in Brno city area

Recent referendums about gambling had caused a storm of opinions on the matter. While some districts of Czech republic only discussed the possible danger of gambling, representatives of Brno have gone a little further.

Majority of representatives have agreed on drastically lowered tolerance of gambling in bars, pubs or even casinos, due to possible bad influence on children and society. All owners of establishments with such machines are now obligated to remove them due 1st of January 2015.

But the new regulations don’t concern just slot machines. Only eight of the twenty-seven Brno districts will be allowed to maintain so-called live games, such as roulette of blackjack.
