Poland to Allow Foreign iGaming Participation

Poland to Allow Foreign iGaming Participation

The Polish government has drafted its first-ever amendment on licensed online gambling. The amendment, to be attached to Poland’s existing Gambling Act, would remove various obstacles for foreign sports betting and iGaming operators to market products in the region.

The amendment will remove existing regulations that require gambling companies to operate within Polish borders. This existing legislation has limited the number of operators wanting to target the Polish iGaming market.

The new Polish gambling law will permit E.U.-licensed and regulated iGaming operators to enter the market, as long as they comply with Polish tax frameworks regarding gambling. The new amendment will ask all operators to supply financial documents and reports in the Polish language.

Poland had been pressured by the E.U. to review its internet gaming framework, since it did not comply with the European Commission laws. It is thought that Poland will fast-track online gambling legislation with a view to have the necessary framework for foreign operator licensing by the first quarter of 2015.
