Players Protection Registry
In case of vulnerable persons the state tax authority is keeping a record, a so called "player protection registry".
The player protection registry includes the case of restrictions based on the court decision as follows:
a.) personal identification data of the person subject to legal restrictions,
b.) restrictions based on the fact of the court decision, and
c.) the restriction for an indefinite duration, or the start and end date in case of fixed term restrictions.

b.) the facts of the player's voluntary decision,
c.) one or more of the designated games or game organizers, as affirmed in the players the self-restraint declaration, and
d.) the start and end date of the restriction.
The state tax authority is registering the significant self-restraint declaration and the declaration of its withdrawal, furthermore the decision on the legal restrictions in the player protection registry, no later than on the next working day after the date of receiving it.
The purpose of the player protection registry is to restrict the participation of these persons in gambling. The casino may only manage and use the data of the player protection registry to restrict the participation of these persons in gambling activities as described above.
We may gain insight into the player protection registry only in order to fulfill our supervisory obligations. The insight happens electronically by downloading and using an electronic extract.
In accordance with the state tax authority, under the act on the player's prevention, and in connection with the type of game stated in our business license, we receive only a generated, electronic extract, containing a non-decipher alphanumeric code about the client's identification personal data, we may use this information only to check the player at his entry.
When the player enters the casino, our employee at the reception desk controls, whether the player is restricted in the state tax authority's player protection registry, with regard to one or more gambling types or gambling organizers. The comparison - after entering the personal data – is determined automatically with the help of the alphanumeric code generated from the personal data of the player. The comparison is carried out automatically by a computer program.
The query is compared with the alphanumeric code generated from the personal data of the player and the alphanumeric code contained in the extract. The alphanumeric code is automatically generated by the computer software.
If the two codes match, the casino the will refuse the player registration, even if the player is already registered, the casino will restrict his gambling opportunities.
In case of failure (when the result of the query cannot be found within 30 seconds after the start of the query) the casino is exempt from its duty of control, with regard to the inclusion in the registry or the player’s entry.
