Poland Warns Punters on Internet Gambling

This story was published more than 9 years ago.

Poland's Ministry of Finance has warned punters that the government has the ability to prosecute players caught gambling online at unlicensed sites, claiming that it has monitored 25,000 players betting illegally.

The Ministry said that the players it has been monitoring have won about $8.3 million, and threatened that it is heavily investigated more than 1,000 punters using offshore sites.

The country currently has a regulatory system that is meant to keep outside companies from entering the lucrative market through high regulatory and tax system costs. This approach to regulation means that there are just four online gaming firms, many of whom offer sportsbetting and actually capture very little of the betting market.
