At a GamblingCompliance conference held in Athens on 19 April 2016, the Government committed to introduce a fully regulated market for online gambling, in Greece, to replace the current temporary licence regime. There will be strict rules and ‘higher tax’ and a proper consultation with business. In Parliament, it was announced that the GGR rate should now be increased to 35% from the current rate of 30%. These GGR rates are the highest in Europe and will not encourage operators to comply.
