Poland Licenses Two More Sportsbooks

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week Poland's Ministry of Finance licensed two new sportsbetting company, now bringing the number of licensees to 14 in the country.

The licenses went to Typiko Sp. z. oo and Traf-Zakłady Wzajemne Sp. z oo, which are both based in Poland. The operators are land based operators that have racing operations, and can now offer punters in the country their online sportsbetting services. Poland is taxing operators at 12%, which has kept a lot of offshore operators from applying for licenses, this despite predictions that the Eastern European country will become a lucrative betting market in terms of iGaming.

In other recent Polish news, the regulator has added another 157 names to the country's gambling blacklist. This blacklist means that internet service providers are supposed to block access to these sites from computers that use internet services there.

We'll keep following the Polish gaming market and will update readers as they license more sites.

I guess Poland is one of the fast growing markets in Europe and not only when it comes to sportsbeting, the country has a huge population and relatively high standard of living compared to some other Central and especially the South Eastern countries in Europe so I believe those won't be the last bookies interested in dealing there.
