Sazka has accordingly been gearing up its new free online offering in order to stand ready to switch to real money action once the laws come into effect, giving it an edge of foreign competitors. was launched as the carrying website earlier this year, allowing Internet gamblers to arrange bets online before placing their wagers at a physical retail point of sale using a bet identifier or barcode.
