Legalization of Online Casino in Poland
Poland's economy has grown rapidly since the Cold War. Since the country became an EU member, the economy is growing due to tourists. Poland has plenty to offer to visitors and locals. However, when talking about gambling or iGaming, things look different than in other EU countries.
Polish people are enthusiastic about playing online casinos. Online casinos are growing faster than the economy. They try to attract local players with their bonuses and promotions. Many games can be tested first free of charge and without risk.
The legal situation surrounding gambling in Poland was permissive until 2009. Now only those sites offering sports betting can get a Polish license. Online casinos are not. However, what's going on is similar to neighboring European countries like Germany, Austria, or the Czech Republic.
Gambling is legal in Poland, but the Internet spectrum has a different outlook. There are hundreds of casinos that are blocked, because they don't have a Polish gambling license. However, there are still around 15,000 offshore online casinos in the country.
The future of the regulation of online casinos in Poland is not clear. The state is likely to earn from the casino licenses.
