Gambling in Poland
Poland's efforts to regulate its gambling industry focus mainly on the right of casinos to open up in a specific geographic location (based on the number of citizens in a town). Strictly speaking, a town with fewer than a quarter of a million residents may not open a gambling establishment. Other than that, there are no tough restrictions on the industry, and gambling can take place in wide number of casinos dotted around the country. The country has one of the largest casino industries in Eastern Europe, with casinos usually found in Warsaw, as well as cities along the Baltic Coast.
Sportsbetting, operated by three different companies to ensure competition, as well as a national lottery, are also available.
Online Gambling in Poland
The Polish government does not, as a rule, hand out online gambling licenses to operators, and - as such - there are no internet gambling sites based in Poland which offer this service. Local casinos are pushing for the government to issue them with operating licenses, although this is still an ongoing process.
However, there are hundreds of Polish online casinos, based outside the country, that offer gameplay in English or Polish and accept wagers in Europe or Polish Zloty, including Microgaming powered sites.
Poles can pay for their online gambling entertainment with debit or credit cards, as well as a popular alternative method for the local market, P24. Skrill and Click2Pay are also widely used.
