When it comes to money, Father State likes to get involved, because he wants to get some of the money. But what exactly are the gambling tax rules?
You do not pay taxes in German-speaking countries. As a professional poker player it is different, but with casino games and slot machines the winnings are invariably tax-free. Whether it is a casino or an online casino does not matter.
However, under the new Gambling Regulations, online casinos have to pay 5.3% tax on all wagers made by players. Casinos pass these taxes on to players through reduced winnings. But at the same time there are still online casinos without taxes.
