Regulation Puts the Squeeze on Casinos & Poker Rooms
Universum Poker Budapest Duna Plaza constantly updates its poker promotions, and players are encouraged to frequent this elegant enclave for their poker kicks. The featured games at Budapest poker rooms include Texas Hold'em and Omaha. According to PokerUpdate.com it should be pointed out that as from 1 January 2015, new legislation passed in Hungary's parliament will see steep increases in the taxes paid by casinos and poker rooms like Universum Poker Budapest.
Most every poker room will be affected by the upcoming tax laws which will make it increasingly difficult for them to operate under such heavy tax burden. Other top tier operators in Budapest include the following: Cotton Poker Club (1066 Budapest, Jokai u.26) and the Invicta Poker Club (1036 Budapest, Becsi ut 38 – 44 Uj Udvar center). Government expects the taxation on casinos and poker rooms to bring in an estimated 10 billion Hungarian forint annually, although many poker rooms and casinos may shutter in the face of such punitive measures.
