Poland: Consequences of proposed amendment to Polish Gambling Act for foreign operators

On 21 October 2014, the Council of Ministers considered a draft amendment (version as of 17 October 2014) to the Polish Gambling Act dated 19 November 2009 which envisages a new opportunity for foreign gambling operators to obtain a permit or a license for conducting gambling activities in Poland. With respect to operating on the Internet, no material changes are expected. European companies will only be able to conduct betting activities in Poland under the conditions set out in the Polish permit, in the approved betting rules, and in the Polish Gambling Act.
