The state does not hide its interest to take advantage of this reality and has decided to regulate Internet poker. According to the new law that will soon be in force, online poker has the status of a game of chance, so it is part of the games in which the state has exclusive rights.

In Hungary, there are two of the most important European associations that aim to defend the rights of poker players. The Hungarian Poker Association and the Hungarian Gambling Association will try to slow down the bill, which, if approved, would stop one of the favourite activities for Hungarians, because, from 10 million inhabitants, 140,000 admit that hey are online poker players.
