In conclusion, the event organized in June at the initiative of the Association of Distance Gaming Organizers (ADGO) was a majir success and arose from the continued need of our gaming industry to discuss and debate the stringent issues of this moment and willingness to support state authorities to improve the current regulatory framework.

The gaming industry has reached a high level of transparency and regulation precisely because of this type of events.

Potential New Casino In The Center Of Gdansk
Reading Time: 1 minute

There is a new intention of creating a new casino in Gdansk in the newely opened IBB Hotel in Dlugi Targ. The one and only issue is that there are already two casinos in the city and the current gambling legislation does not allow another one.

The Warsaw-based company Casino, which manages, among others: a casino in Sopot, wants to open another one in Gdańsk. The company applied for permission to rebuild the premises for a casino and a club with a small gastronomy. Where? In the basement and ground floor of the IBB Hotel in Długi Targ, which opened in April.

We have accepted the casino offer, but now it has to deal with a number of procedures, including getting permission from the Ministry of Finance and the City Council of Gdansk” – said Adam Trybusz, the owner of the object.

The Gambling Act of Poland states that in towns with up to 250,000 residents only one casino can be created, and for each subsequent started 250 thousand inhabitants, their number is increased by one. The number of casinos in the region can not be higher than one casino for each full 650,000 inhabitants.

Poland to enforce stricter regulations over online gambling
Reading Time: 1 minute

The Polish government is demanding more info from internet service providers (ISPs) about its citizens’ attempts to access illegal websites.

The government wants to make the restrictions stricter for unauthorised online gambling sites and will require local internet service providers (ISPs) to inform it about citizens’ attempts to access them. According to the Panoptykon Foundation, a digital rights watchdog, the government will compile a central registry of unauthorized websites that “used to offer goods and services contrary to the law.”

According to the digital rights body, the government seeks to authorise a “chief sanitary inspector” that would compel data from ISPs that will disclose which citizens tried to access unauthorised websites. In addition, companies would have to turn over the information “without the knowledge and consent of the person it concerns.”

Local organisations are worried that the censorship’s expansion could turn out to be the first of many steps in an online limitation escalation. Nonetheless, several countries enforce similar restrictions on online activities and are hardly ever questioned, like the Canadian province of Quebec or some experiences in the UK as well.
