Poland to relax strict online gambling laws

Poland are moving to more liberal online gambling laws after the European Commission approved the countries plans to allow overseas online gambling operators into the country. It is planned now that Poland will allow foreign operators to offer their services in the country without having to locate a base within the country.

Following a review of its current law, Polish ministers have lifted operator requirements to be partnered with a local partner.

It was last year that the EU Commission criticized Poland for its ruling that only online operators based within its borders were allowed to offer online gambling.

Currently only four online operators have been granted licenses to offer their services to nationals, they are Fortuna Entertainment, Milenium, STS and Totolek. A timeframe for the new laws is not known but it is expected to be changed this year.
