Finnish poker ban perhaps soon a reality

The Finnish poker players are among the world's best, such as Future Patrik Antonius, Ilari 'Ziigmund' Sahamies, Juha Helppi etc. But they might experience some difficulty playing online poker within their own country in the future.

If they do the same as Italy did I don`t think it will be a problem to big sites. It will narrow down selection of sites where Fins will be able to play but it will give players more protection at the same time and earn extra income to government budget.

its grim. why does europe need to copy the US? if a country bans online poker then surely all other immoral things should be banned. you can buy card scanning equipment, peoples ids, psychoactive drugs and all sorts online. poker is nothing in comparison to what is available online.cant they just stop credit card gambling? go to cash only?

US didn't ban online right? They just didn't like how the money was being handled or something like that? And some poker rooms didn't want to comply.

well i think the want to bann that because they have no profit on that...most onlinepokerplattform are stationed in other countries ..so finnish money flows to other conutries...maybe they want to protect their owm money...i think its understandable....

but im lucky not to live in finnland Big Smile

Holland is so fucked up at the moment.
They want a law so they can get tax on online poker, but there is NOT a good law yet.

But on TV in holland there are really big commercials from Pokerstars, Everest and FullTilt.

Holland is screwed Confused

You posted 1sec before me Tongue

Tax isnot really a problem for me yet at online poker (i think).
I make some bucks with online poker but i dont really know how it works with tax in holland.
I searched on the net and problably my winnings are too littl to pay any tax, but not sure.
So for now i keep my money on my poker-account, moneybokers-account and neteller-account.

So if somebody know for 100% how it works in holland feel free Smile

@doomdy

I would suggest you to find out how the laws and tax laws are for you. It's very important imo especially since you are a regular winner. You can probably get an answer on a NL poker forum....if not contact your tax office for your own sake.

My point was just don't move to Thailand because it becomes illegal in your country cause it's illegal in Thailand too Disagree but probably less controlled Confused

this theme is a bit confusing to me though.
for instance denmark...how high have to be your winnings that you have to pay tax on it ?
50K (year) and up, or no matter how much you won..?

its a joke anyways, in fact you already paid your taxes and then you have to pay again. so you pay twice on the same thing..u know what i mean lol ?

In DK poker winnings are only tax related when won on a non EU casino(fx Pokerstars and FTP), so if you play onlinepoker on a site with EU class 3 license it's tax free.

But it's more or less illegal to play online poker in DK, we got a law "paregraf 203" which states it's illegal to make profit on hasard games and danish poker union was "recently" in court where they first won in the City court which made poker a game of knowledge and not hasard the government quickly demanded the case should get to Land court where danish poker union lost the case which made poker a hasard game. Now danish poker union are awaiting a date to be set for the final court in Denmark called Highest court.

So as it is right now you can play tax free on all EU class 3 casinos but it's illegal to win. Because in Denmark you can be luckier than the law allows, I meen they made it hasard so a regular winner must be more lucky than the rest of the players Tongue Aww crap! LOL joke laws Aww crap!

Danish tax office uses these sites to decide wether a online casiono is tax related or not:

Did some research on the net on ''online poker in holland and tax''

For now there are not so many troubles, if i have to believe what i read its 1,2% tax max on online poker winnings.

Basicly its now that taxman cant really get the online players in holland cos there isnt a good law yet.

Cant give the link of the site cos many poker banners Smile
