      It differs from country to country. In Slovenia you do not need to pay it. Online winnings are tax free here.
      But with our new law its "forbidden" to deposit on gambling/betting/poker sites :P No one cares much, tbh.

      The law says it's mandatory, if that's what you mean, but no one in his right mind pays 50% tax on poker winnings. Also, over here poker is not a skill game. Because the law says so.

      EDIT: Belgium all the way baby!
