Presidential decree makes online poker in Poland illegal

This story was published more than 13 years ago.

After months of political wrangling, President Bronislaw Komorowski of Poland has signed into law a decree banning some forms of gambling, including online poker. The legislation classes online poker among those game genres that are defined as "hard gambling" games, or games the legislature feels are addictive or present the possibility of cheating.

However, it does not appear as if the ban includes tournament poker.

Further details on the new law are awaited.
