Vasileios Volikakis's curator insight, May 5, 2013 7:33 PM

Despite the privatization of OPAP, it still remains a big issue for greek government which is the legal context of online gaming in Greece. OPAP used to have the monopoly of the gambling market in Greece and now it has to face the tough challenge to compete these huge companies. There is also a big disadvantage for the greek company which is the lack of technology as there isn't any online platform for the customers. The market is still uncertain in Greece which is one of the most profitable countries in gambling sector of Europe and it needed patience until the things get clear.
