888 Leaves Poland

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Internet gaming group 888 Holdings has announced that they've opted to leave the Polish gaming market, as they don't currently hold a license in the jurisdiction.

The company has already begun stopping Polish player registrations and will stop allowing punters in the country from playing there as of June 5th. The move comes after the Polish government implemented a ban on online gambling for operators not holding a license within their borders. The country has given a final deadline of July 1st for operators without a license to stop offering services in the country.

Currently, there are at least 235 different betting sites that are operating in the country without a license, and more are coming online every day. Those found offering services without a license will face stiff penalties if they don't comply.

We will be keeping on the Polish market and will be letting CL readers know of other large sites that pull services from the country.

Poland is one of the places from which sites are pulling out. Hopefully there still will be some good sites left for them.
