Italian term or phrase: prelievo
Context: remote gambling contract

prelievo o prelievo del gioco online:
indica il totale delle somme raccolte non destinate ai giocatori e al concessionario per i concorsi a pronostici sportivi e ippici, per i giochi di ippica nazionale, per le scommesse ippiche, per le scommesse sportive a totalizzatore, per i giochi di carte in modalità di torneo e per il bingo ovvero la spettanza erariale per le scommesse sportive a quota fissa, per i giochi di sorte a quota fissa e per i giochi di carte in modalità diversa dal torneo

I can't find a satisfactory translation for this term. Does anyone have a better idea? It's a recurrent term in horse racing betting and I don't think "withdrawal" fits in in this context.

Thanks!

tax revenue


Explanation:
I think this is the best way to translate it. You have your answer in the sentence "spettanza erariale" which is tax revenue due or just tax due.

neutral  philgoddard: No, "spettanza erariale" is tax, but the question is about "prelievo", which is the money collected by the gambling operator.

agree  Dan Newton: This sounds right to me... btw the "prelievo" is defined as "totale delle somme raccolte non destinate ai giocatoori e al concessionario"...so it's not money that's going to the operator

take


Explanation:
I can't find a dictionary reference that gives a translation for this very specific context, but hopefully you'll be convinced by my example sentences. The take is basically the net revenue of the business.

My dictionary reference shows that one meaning of "prelevare" is "to take", as in prelevare un campione, to take a sample.

Example sentence(s):
  • The casino's take was $1.8 million more than it made in September, 1997
  • Casinos' take from gambling has remained relatively flat.

Alison's answer sounds right to me...but for completezza I just thought i'd post this wikipedia entry on slot machines in Italy https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slot_machine
which refers to the PREU, or "Prelievo Erariale Unico" on gaming receipts
