According to the new rules, 95% of the tax revenues from gembling operations will be sentown to the state treasury, and the self will receive the balance – five%.
One of the factors that influenced the decision was reproached to the new conservative party from the opposition block in the fact that the authorities are ready to fight gambling only in words.
