Scottish legal poker background
In terms of poker taxes and gambling regulation, Scotland is the poker heaven on earth. After the 2005 Gaming Act, online poker is legal, and the best news is that profits are not taxable.
Scottish grinders can play in virtually any online poker room, with only a few exceptions, as the UK requires a license fee and fulfill some requirements to operate in the country.
Playing online poker in Scotland is a very profitable decision, and for those grinders looking to boost their EV, we'll share the best Scottish-friendly online poker rooms.
Best Scottish poker players
The results of Scottish poker players in the live poker circuit are stunning: $45M with a population of only 5 million people, including one WSOP Golden Bracelet won by Niall Farrel ($6,1M in profits, EPT champion). David Vamplew ($3,8M in profits, EPT and WPT champion), and Ludovic Geilich ($2,8M in profits, EPT champion) completes the ranking of the best Scottish poker players of the moment.
Henri "buehlero" Bühler, Andy "PROFESSORPABLO," Euan "mrnappa" Baxter, and Paul "xxxCelticFCxx" Febers are the leaders of the Scottish online poker community who have won almost $70M at online poker rooms.
Many grinders choose Glasgow or Edinburg to relocate after moving from their countries to develop a poker career, thanks to the fantastic gambling regulation in the UK.
