Ireland Casinos

Ireland is made up to two jurisdictions. There is Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland. The last several years have been good for gambling in both parts of Ireland, as it is shown to be more popular now then ever.

Reports show that the people in Ireland spent a total of 1.6 billion Euros on the gaming industry, specifically gambling.

The Gambling laws in Ireland dictate that gambling in a casino illegal unless it is a private club. This law has been in place since 1956 and is called the 1956 Gaming and Lotteries Act.  Even though this law sounds strict, it has kept the major corporations with the huge gambling establishments away and many residents and tourists like that aspect of gambling in this country.

Another great thing about the laws in the Republic of Ireland for gambling is the fact that your winnings are tax-free. However, keep in mind that laws regarding taxes in your country may apply. Many of the casinos offer their players a chance to become a member of the Players Club, but keep in mind that they do not serve alcohol to the player’s club members.

Not only does Ireland offer the best in gaming choices, you can be sure to see some of the most beautiful country sides the world has to offer. If you are going to be visiting Ireland to take a taste of their gambling casinos, then you should familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations of the particular casino you are visiting as many casinos have their own set of rules.
