In some countries, online casinos are out of law, which creates difficulties for both players and online casino operators. At the same time, it does not affect depositing money to and withdrawing money from online casinos.
Theoretically, the state can implement draconian measures, such as banning payment systems used to transfer money to online casinos. Either legislators have not had such an idea yet, or this solution would be very costly and technically hard to implement.
An ordinary casino player has nothing to worry about, though. In European countries, casino winnings are taxed. In some other countries, though, you can win a large amount of money and withdraw it to your plastic card or e-wallet without having to pay a cent to the state.
Even if you would like to pay taxes, you will have to reveal your interest in online gambling. This may result in some serious problems, so we would not recommend you this option.
If you want to stay anonymous, you can withdraw your winnings via payment systems. Using bank wire or plastic card is not recommended, because your bank may take interest in origin of your money.
We hope that online gambling market will soon become regulated, with licensed operators and legal winnings. In that scenario, paying taxes will be a logical part of the system. For the time being, the situation is not favorable for players: if online casino refuses to pay out your winnings, you won’t be able to do anything about it.
