Poland Gambling Guide
Summary: Gambling is legal in Poland since 1918 (officially: the Republic of Poland, a Central European country, and a member of the EU, Europe’s 9th biggest country, with a population of 38 million).

Poland, just like Hungary, is a Central European country geographically, but both are culturally and economically Eastern European, and they were both forced to be a part of the Soviet Union till 1991.

/Comment: Additionally, Poland and Hungary are very close allies, probably have the closest alliance of any two country within the EU, both part of the Visegrád 4 group, which is like a mini-EU of Central European countries: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia (fun fact: most of these countries were formerly part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which is where World War I. started)./

Online gambling is also legal in Poland since 2011.

History of Gambling in Poland- click to expand

Just like in the case of other countries, which used to be “behind the iron curtain” (part of the Soviet Union) Poland’s history with gambling must be divided into pre-communist and past-communist periods.

Before the USSR:

Poland, as we know today, only exist since 1918 (after their first independence from Russia).

1918 – 1930 – The first clear written record of gambling is from 1918, when the country’s first casino opened in Sopot.

1927 – The Sopot casino was redesigned and greatly expanded to become a resort, spa, hotel (Hotel Kuracyjny) and casino (still in operation: Hotel Grand Sopot, it was inspired by Austrian and German “Kurhaus” casinos in operation at that time, which were really popular among the upper crust of the European society).

Back then casinos were strictly for the upper classes and for people aged 21+, and only men were allowed to enter (although women if accompanied by a man were allowed to enter, this was very common back then, smoking was also allowed inside the building).

1945 – 1991 – Poland was part of the USSR and gambling was mostly illegal (except there were lotteries in certain countries, including Poland, in 1955 by the Resolution No 1010/55 of the Government the Polish lottery was founded).

1989 – Towards the end of the Russian regime, when cracks began to appear in the system, some casino reopened with special permission as part of an attempt to revitalize the failing economy of the Soviet Union.

Additionally the Polish Baltic Shipping Company had some ships and ferries with gaming machines.

It was unsuccessful and failed to save the abysmal communist economy, which was corrupt, extremely inefficient and was drowning in debt (money loaned by American and European Jewish banker families mostly, e.g.: the Rothschilds among others).

After the fall of the USSR:

1991 – After their second independence from Russia gambling was quickly relegalized, according to the Act on Games and Betting.

2009 – The gambling legislation was overhauled and extended by the Act on Gambling Games.

2011 – The first forms of online gambling were legalized.

 

+ EXTRA: The earliest written record of any form of gambling in the territory of Poland is from 1777, when a framework for the organization of lottery games was established. The very first lottery on Polish territory started its operation in 1786, September 1, organized by the State Treasury of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth (even back then the lottery was state-owned). However, this predates the formation of Poland by hundreds of years.

Gambling is legal in Poland since 1920, according to Act on Gambling Games (Ustawa o grach hazardowych)1, which is the main piece of the gambling legislation.

Gambling is legal since 1920, and it was relegalized in 1991 after the country’s independence from the USSR (in the USSR most forms of gambling were illegal). And the gambling legislation was overhauled and extended in 2009.

The current gambling legislation is one of the most restrictive in Europe, and the reason for this are past gambling related scandals, lobbying, organized crime involvement regarding the then legal slot halls (the scandal was dubbed as “afera hazardowa” by the Polish media).

The new Gambling Act imposed severe restrictions on the gambling establishments already in operation in Poland. It limited the scope, scale and location of their operations, it resulted in many closures and made slot halls entirely illegal, and still to this day, there are barely any casinos in Poland as a result.

There only around 15 casinos, which is not much for a country of 38 million (to put it into context: the neighboring Czech Republic has 50+ casinos for only 10 million people, and there were 50 casino-like establishments in Poland prior to the 2009 Gambling Act).

Slot halls are also legal since 2018. Apart from the 15 casinos there are also 50+ of slot halls (they only have gaming machines, no live dealer tables, no dice games and no card games). All of these are operated by the state-owned company Totalizator Sportowy. Private companies can not operate slot parlours.

Online gambling is also legal since 2011.

A 2011 amendment to the Act legalized the operation of online betting sites and promotional lotteries, raffles over the internet but with severe limitations. It only allowed Polish companies (owned by Polish individuals living in Poland) to operate online bookmakers, and they could only accept bettors from Poland.

Other amendments to the Act enabled the national lottery company to offer its lottery products online.

However, online poker and online casinos are still illegal within the country.

UPDATE 2021: Online gambling is still very restricted, and online poker and online casino gambling have still not been legalized yet.

Since 2011, Poland’s authorities have only approved 8 online betting licensees, among others: Fortuna Entertainment, Millenium, STS and Totolotek2. These domestic sports betting companies still have a hard time competing with the superior and bigger foreign international online bookmakers and unlicensed offshore operators (who don’t pay any taxes in Poland) have a 51% market share according to Polish Supreme Audit Office.

Visiting these unlicensed gambling sites is illegal. Only licensed gambling sites, with a Polish licence can accept players from Poland.

Poland and the EU gambling laws: Because Poland is an EU country Article 56 TFEU3 and Article 8 of Directive 98/34/EC (EU gambling directives) apply.

According to these the current Polish gambling legislation is not compliant with EU laws.

EU authorities expressed concerns about the current legislation that does not guarantee the free flow of products and services between member states in the European Economic Area.

To address some of these concerns, another amendment to the Act on Gambling Games was signed into law in 2016. The amendment allows gambling companies from other EU member states to set up gaming operations in Poland, provided they have a physical branch and a Polish speaking representative in the country. Although, this only applies to online betting companies, EU online casino companies still can not not get a licence.

According to these EU laws Poland could not restrict or fine players for playing in unlicensed online casinos, which are licensed in other EU countries, and the country should not restrict access to these websites, because that would restrict the free flow of services and competition within the EEA. It happens regardless and there is a lot of litigation because of this behind the scenes.

Polish authorities did not block unlicensed websites prior to 2017, since then, many of the unlicensed online gambling websites are blocked, even though this contravenes EU laws. And additionally, financial institutions have started blocking transactions to and from unlicensed gambling websites as well (although reportedly this does not really work, offshore operators easily bypass these measures by using payment processors and proxy offshore bank accounts).

In November 2014, the Polish Ministry of Finance published an official announcement on its website warning Polish players that if they place bets on foreign unlicensed online platforms they can face legal action: a fine, and criminal indictment4. This is also not compliant with EU laws, and this is illegal according to various EU laws..

The ministry also stated that they have information about more than 24,000 players who have been participating in overseas gambling, including 17,700 players who have won a total of PLN 27 million ($6,97 million, this violates EU privacy rights).

The Ministry has already initiated more than 1,100 criminal investigations in 2014, against the players who have received the highest winnings.

However, it turns out, this was barely more than scare tactics, most of these players only received small fines and winners had to pay taxes on their winnings (because none of them paid any taxes on their gambling winnings, even though it is taxable income, see below, at the gambling taxation section).

Since 2014 there weren’t any further mass prosecutions in Poland. The prosecutions most likely stopped. However, there is no official info on this, it’s best to just stick to licensed operators and avoid offshore websites.

Authorities expressly mentioned that they are only after those with really high winnings. Small scale recreational players do not really have anything to worry about. Nevertheless, because of the litigiousness of the Polish government we do not recommend playing in unlicensed offshore online casinos from Poland.

You can find a list of online gambling websites, which accept players from Poland below. 

 

Betting on blood sports in Poland

All forms of blood sports are considered animal cruelty, and are illegal in Poland. Betting on blood sports is also illegal.

 

Poland has much more to offer than just its casino hotels. Here is a little taste of what to expect when you visit:

/Comment: I strongly recommend Poland for tourists. Great value for money, you can get the “European experience” here as well, for less than third of the price of a Western European vacation.

And unlike the over-globalized Western half of Europe, Central European countries still have their local character, customs, people, not just Mc Donald’s and migrants (e.g like all German big cities)./

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Poland?

Yes, tourists, expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Gambling licensing in Poland

Gambling, betting and promotional lottery licenses are issued by the National Revenue Administration. You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of gambling business in Poland. Their website is available in English as well.

Eligible are:

 

Online betting and promotional lotteries (includes: promotional lottery, raffle, bingo) are the only forms of online gambling currently allowed to be organised by private entities. Other forms of online gambling are restricted to the state-owned company (Totalizator Sportowy Sp. z o.o.).

In terms of land-based gambling, the following licenses are available:

 

There can only be one casino and bingo saloon in a single location (village or city) up to 250,000 inhabitants. For each consequent 250,000 inhabitants, the maximum number of permitted establishments is increased by one (for example, two casinos are available for up to 500,000 inhabitants, three casinos are available for up to 750,000 inhabitants and so on), but there cannot be more than one casino per 650,000 inhabitants in a single province (województwo).
Casinos can also be operated aboard sea passenger ships and passenger ferries. However, these casinos must be closed while in port.

Slot machine parlours can only be operated by the state-owned company Totalizator Sportowy Sp. z o.o.. There is also a limit on the number of slot machines which can operate in them, with no more than one machine per 1,000 inhabitants allowed in a single county.

Licensing requirement and fees can be found in the Providing Services through Electronic Means, a.k.a E-Commerce Act (Ustawa o świadczeniu usług drogą elektroniczną).

Summary:

 

Casino gambling in Poland

Casinos in Poland: legal since 1918, operators require a licence, slot halls are also legal

Online casino gambling in Poland: illegal, players who play in unlicensed online casinos are prosecuted

 

Casinos are legal and licensed in Poland, although the 2009 Act on Gambling Games imposed severe restrictions on their operations, such as an upper limit for gaming tables set to 70, higher tax rates and limited the number of casinos based on population number (there were 40 casinos prior to 2009, after the Ustawa o grach hazardowyc there were only 13, and since them it has dropped to around 15).

The legislation also condemned most gambling to casino establishments and slot halls and gaming machines in bars and pubs were banned (similar to most of Europe).

However, slot halls were relegalized in 2018, and they were made a monopoly of the state-owned gambling company Totalizator Sportowy Sp. z o.o..

Casinos were actually legal in 1918 already. However, they were banned during the Soviet occupation.

The oldest Polis casino is the Casino Hotel and Spa of Sopot from 1920, you can find a list of all the casinos in Poland here.

According to the regulations in place regarding gry losowe (games of chance), only the following types of games can be found in a Polish casino:

  • cylindrical games (e.g.: roulette, boule, money wheel);
  • gaming machines (gry na automatach, slots, video poker machines);
  • dice games (very rare, only 3 out of the 15 casinos in Poland have dice games, this is common in Europe, dice games are not widespraed);
  • card games (gry w kart, black jack, poker, baccarat

 

Online casinos are currently outlawed in Poland and there doesn’t seem to be any change on the horizon.

Polish authorities restrict access to unlicensed foreign casino sites and they have started to prosecute players who frequent these unlicensed offshore online casinos, despite the fact that this is against EU laws, as mentioned above.

The risks for ordinary players are reasonably small, authorities expressly stated that they would go after professional players and players who won really big and don’t pay taxes on their winnings.

Still, we do not recommend visiting unlicensed online casinos from Poland for these reasons.

/Comment: However, some online gambling websites seem to get around the law by getting a betting license, which is legal (see below, in the sports betting section) but they still allow their Polish players use the casino games on their website, they just simply report the generated revenue as sports betting activity to the authorities.

And some have special agreements with the government (e.g.: Betsson group). That’s why there are still some online casinos, which accept Polish players. You can see them below./

The licensed online casinos below accept players from Poland.

Bingo in Poland

Bingo halls in Poland: legal, operators require a licence

Online bingo in Poland: illegal, players are prosecuted

 

Land-based bingo is legal in Poland.

One bingo hall is permitted per every 100 K population.

However, online bingo is illegal, according to current laws.

The national lottery company Totalizator Sportowy has a monopoly over a televised bingo games and they also operate an online bingo-like game but they also don’t organize any real online bingo games.

Foreign online bingo websites are banned by ISPs and private companies can not get a licence. Visiting unlicensed offshore online bingo sites is illegal.

The following online bingo websites accept players from Poland.

Online bingo websites, which accept players from Poland - click to see

The following online casino websites have live bingo and accept players from Poland:

We do not recommend playing bingo online from Poland. There are no licensed online bingo sites and using unlicensed online gambling site can get you in trouble.

 

Poker in Poland

Poker halls in Poland: legal, operators require a licence, no poker halls, restricted to casinos

Online poker in Poland: illegal, players are prosecuted when playing in unlicensed poker networks

 

Poker is legal in Poland.

Land-based poker is legal in Poland, but it can only be played inside licensed brick and mortar casinos. Most of the casinos has some sort of poker.

None of the slot halls have any kind of card games (although they do have video poker machines).

There are no standalone poker halls in Poland, there is no poker hall licence.

Video poker machines are also legal.

Online poker is illegal for now, but it will most likely be legalised in the next couple of years, along with online casinos gambling.

A draft was already introduced to legalise online poker in Poland in 2016, but it is still illegal. For now, most major foreign poker platforms are inaccessible from the country.

Poker players who visit unlicensed offshore online poker platforms can be prosecuted. It is risky to play poker online from Poland on unlicensed websites, and therefore we do not recommend it.

/Comment: However, just like in case of online casinos, some companies apparently managed to find a way around the legislation. Because sports betting licences are possible to acquire, some foreign gambling companies acquired the aforementioned licenses (you can see them below) and they also allow Polish players who register on their websites to play casinos games, sports betting and also poker. They just report the poker revenue as betting activity, this way they still manage to accept Polish players./

The online poker websites below accept players from Poland.

Lottery in Poland

Lottery in Poland: legal, state monopoly, except for temporary promotional lotteries and charity lottery

Online lottery in Poland: legal since 2017, state monopoly, except for temporary promotional lotteries

 

Just like almost everywhere in Europe, the lottery is a state monopoly (in 90% of European countries this is the case). All lottery games in Poland are the monopoly of Totalizator Sportowy Sp. z o.o., the national lottery company, which operates Polish Lotto (that’s the official name of the Polish National Lottery, but it also goes by the name Toto Lotek and Duzy Lotek).

Online lottery is also legal.

The company was not allowed to offer its products online for quite a long time, for legal reasons, until 2017. This makes the Polish lottery one of the last in Europe to have an online platform (most of the other European lotteries already sold lottery tickets online by 2012).

Polish players can also participate in foreign lottery draws, in person, as a tourist visiting other countries, or online, from so called “lottery purchasing services” (lottery purchasing services are businesses, which purchase physical lottery tickets for you in a foreign country if you make a purchase on their website, you can see an example of such a website below).

The following websites allow people from Poland to purchase lottery tickets online.

Bitcoin gambling in Poland

Cryptocurrency wagering in Poland: not specifically regulated

 

Bitcoin is not illegal in Poland. However, the National Bank of Poland (NBP) and the Financial Supervision Authority (KNF) do not recognize it as currency.

There is no specific cryptocurrency gambling law in place, and the gambling legislation makes no mention of alternative digital currencies.

However, because bitcoin, litecoin, etherium and the other cryptos are not recognised as currency none of the brick & mortar gambling establishments accept them. The National lottery and sports betting platform also do not accept virtual currencies.

However, licensed online gambling websites could potentially accept them through the use of various payment processors, and some of them do inded accept crypto and players from Poland.

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
