Online gambling in Poland

Poland has a complex gambling market. Due to its historical background and religious tradition, many people have had a hard time getting into online gambling. While progress has been made in Poland in making online gambling legal, there’s still a long way to go before it becomes a free

The online gaming industry was also boosted by the government’s efforts to update the regulations when the gaming industry was updated. The legislation passed in 2009 and 2011 restricted the number of websites that can offer online gambling in Poland.

The laws governing gambling in Poland are very detailed and can be quite harsh. They make a distinction between sports betting and gaming. In Poland, the regulations for online gambling are much looser. It is even though the country has no legal framework for online betting.

The country has allowed online sportsbooks to operate for a maximum of 6 years. It was a huge boost for the industry as it allowed operators to set up shops without going through the licensing process. In 2015, the law allowed online gaming companies to open physical offices in Poland, but they all have to get the operating licenses or risk closure.

Without any real money gaming sites in Poland, most of the big names in the industry operate from overseas in unregulated areas. There are plenty of online casinos that are truly trustworthy because they are operated overseas. Polish gamers receive amazing gaming from the sites. Even though the market in Poland is still restricted, these sites make up the majority of the online gaming industry in that country.

Poland’s annual turnover is expected to reach 1.82 Euros billion in 2018, and the amount is expected to be more in the coming years. The advantage of playing at a foreign online casino is that they do not have to pay any tax on your transactions.

It has been noted that the Polish authorities are planning to crack down on those who use foreign sites to play video games. Even if the government eventually bans all forms of online gambling, it would still not target the biggest players as they have huge earnings and are not considered real threats to society. There are plenty of online casinos in Poland that are safe and secure.

Poland gambling scene, culture, and history

Poland is located in central Europe. Following the end of the Second World War, it was under the control of the Soviet Union. When Poland became a Soviet republic in 1989, it became one of the first countries to experience revolutionary change. Its religious majority has allowed for flourishing gaming industry.

For most of the past century, gambling was largely unregulated. Most establishments that offered betting were left with little regulation. In 1992, new restrictions were placed on the expansion of gambling establishments. These restrictions required that any new casinos be built in cities with populations of at most 250,000 people.

In 2010, the Polish government passed a law that limited the number of establishments that can offer gambling machines. Each region has its regulations regarding the operation of casinos. The biggest restrictions are placed on the number of operators that can operate in each area.

Today, Poland has plenty of land-based gambling establishments. These include many establishments that are attached to quality hotels. Poland has a state lottery system that is managed by a firm called Totalizator Sportowy. They offer a variety of games, including the Duzy Lotek. There are also various other sports betting opportunities in Poland. One of these is horse racing, which dates back to the 1870s.

In conclusion, sports betting is a popular pastime in Poland. However, it has become harder to provide this service due to the country’s gaming laws. Private companies can obtain licenses to operate online sports betting from the relevant authorities. Gaming in the country continues to thrive, and the industry continues to grow bigger.

Responsible Gambling in the Czech Republic



Responsible Gambling in the Czech Republic
Reading Time: 3 minutes


The unceasing European trend in emphasizing the policy of reducing the harms of gambling and the principles of responsible gambling was also an inspiration for the Czech Republic, and it has been following this trend since last week.

The Institute for Gambling Regulation (IFGR), which represents 95% of the legal gambling market in the Czech Republic, with 35 members including both online and land-based operators, test laboratories as well as manufacturers, introduced last week a unique comprehensive project called “Responsible Gambling”.

As part of this project, the Institute prepared “Code of Responsible Conduct of Operators”. The gambling operators have undertaken to abide by its partial rules, which go beyond the already strict Czech regulation, which will contribute to a safer gambling environment, that is through responsible behaviour and conduct towards players. “Code of Responsible Advertising and Marketing” is also included.

The Code of Responsible Conduct of Operators contains very specific 26 obligations, which are divided into 4 areas:

  1. Raising Awareness of Responsible Gambling
  • For example, there is the obligation to inform customers about responsible gambling immediately after registration on the website, by e-mail or by an annual notification of the possibility of setting limits


  1. Prevention Of High-Risk Behaviour
  • Early detection of high-risk gambling using a mathematical algorithm for finding high-risk players and early targeted intervention and assistance to these players


  1. Training of Employees in The Field of Responsible Gambling
  • Basic (so that everyone is aware of responsible gambling)
  • Special (employees in selected positions, e.g., RG specialists, VIP marketing, employees in the premises)


  1. Responsible Marketing and Advertising
  • Suspension of marketing to high-risk players, persons registered in the Register of Excluded Persons and persons under 18 years of age


As part of the Responsible Gambling project, the Institute, in cooperation with operators and the National Institute of Mental Health, is creating a predictive mathematical model that will evaluate real-time changes in the behaviour of a gambling game participant. The created software will be able to recognize the moment when a player starts betting risky and immediately alert the player to this fact. In cooperation with leading Czech scientific experts, the subsequent intervention and immediate assistance which shall help the player regain the lost control over their gambling is then provided.

The uniqueness of this project lies in the fact that it will not only be the implementation of the created software at the level of individual operators, but there is an agreement that in the future, a single “bar” will be set for all involved operators. Therefore, once the software indicates a player’s risky gambling with one of the operators, the others will perceive the player’s gambling the same.

In order to provide high-risk players with adequate help, we are building a training centre for employees and the professional assistance network consisting of addictologists, financial and legal advisers in cooperation with experts.

On Thursday, 16 September 2021, a ceremonial presentation of the Responsible Gambling project took place; participants included the director of the IFGR, Mgr. Jan Řehola, Ph.D., Simo Dragicevic (researcher dealing with player behaviour and predicting its riskiness, founder of Bet Buddy), PhDr. Ladislav Csémy (National Institute for Health Choking), doc. MUDr. Viktor Mravčík, Ph.D. (National Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Addictions (NMS) at the Secretariat of the Government Council for the Coordination of Drug Policy at the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic) and representatives of state administration and addictology organizations.

As part of the ceremonial presentation of the Responsible Gambling project, representatives of the four largest online operators in the Czech Republic, namely FORTUNA, CHANCE, TIPSPORT and SAZKA, signed the Code of Responsible Conduct of Operators.
