Betting at Record Levels

CroatiaWith the economic situation as it, not many businesses in Croatia last year were fortunate enough to record positive growth, but there were some smiling – the nations bookies…

In 2013 Croats spent a record 5.62 billion kuna (over 700 million EUR) at the bookies, 3% more than they spent the previous year. Although the bookies experienced growth, the rate of growth has slowed down. In 2012 Croats spent what was then a record 5.45 billion kuna (700 million euros) at the bookies, up 16% from the previous year. Tax on winnings last year boosted the state coffers by 4 million kuna (52 million EUR).

Along with the state-owned Hrvatska Lutrija, there are 7 private-owned players in the market with Super Sport the nation’s leading bookmaker.
