Poland to Introduce New Online Poker Bill

This story was published more than 8 years ago.

This week it was revealed that politicians in Poland may be gearing up to license online poker, as a new bill concerning the game will be introduced by the end of the month.

The new bill will allow online operators who have existing licenses in Poland to offer online poker games, but will have to pay a tax of 12% on turnover. Betting is currently restricted in Poland to a handful of operators, and any new legislation will have to be in compliance with European Union law.

It is currently unknown whether or not the measure stands a decent shot of being passed, but if it does become law, online poker could raise a high level of tax revenue for the country of 38 million people.

For me this is just one more proof of the fact that any of the European governments are not quite adequate on the online gambling business needs, it's a shame because this business is not a new one and with the right activities from the authorities it could be quite profitable for the state and the gambling companies itself.
