“France is a bit too rigorous towards online bookmakers,” Warrington told the news provider, “as all of them are required to relocate their servers in French territory and pay ‘turnover tax’. As a result, many online bookmakers abandoned the French market.”

Similarly, Warrington warned lawmakers in Bulgaria not to make similar mistakes should adopt the online gambling legislation currently be mulled in their houses of government – claiming that taxation should be large enough to ensure a state profit but accommodating enough to create a “favorable climate for online gambling in the country.”
