Greece taken to EU court as they fail to recover from casino assistance

As Greece failed to recover the government's help that state-owned casinos have received for the last decade, the nation will be taken to the European Union‘s top court.

While private casinos have been paying an admission tax of 12 euros (15.70 dollars) per person, public casinos of Mont Parnes, Corfu and the private casino of Thessaloniki on the other hand, were only paying 4.80 euros.

This unjust taxation has put Greece on the spot as the European Commission has concluded that it was giving an advantage to some casinos and making the state to abandon revenues that could've been collected.
