Online casinos in Poland

Legal status of digital casinos in Poland: illegal, players playing in unlicensed online casinos can be prosecuted

 

Online casino gambling is currently illegal in Poland, but since 2016 there are talks of legalizing it (UPDATE 2021: nothing so far)1.

Unlicensed online casinos are blocked by the ISPs (Internet Service Providers) since 2017 and financial transactions to and from unlicensed gambling websites are blocked.

Some online gambling websites circumvent the ban on online casinos by getting a Polish sports betting license (details below in the Polish gambling licensing section), which is legal and available. But these websites also have online casino games on their websites as well, which Polish players can still use (you can see these websites below).

/Comment: It’s not actually 1000% clear how this actually works from a legal point of view (probably special agreement with the government, if you know more please drop a comment, obviously these things are all hush-hush, under the carpet kind of deals, but would love to know more). They also utilize intermediary companies, which report the earned revenue as bets on sports instead of the reality, and there are also “tricky” payment processors involved.

And as long as these websites pay taxes on this, and they do, the government seem to turn a blind eye to this small bending of the rules, which I’m personally very much okay with (you can see these websites below)./

However, using unlicensed online gambling websites is illegal, and players do sometimes get punished since 20142 if they win bigger amounts and don’t pay taxes on them (yes gambling winnings are taxable in Poland, see the online casino winnings taxation section below).

Additionally, Polish banks officially should block financial transactions to and from unlicensed offshore online casinos. However, in reality this doesn’t really happen (similarly to Norway btw.)3 and offshore gambling companies able to circumvent this using offshore bank accounts and payment processors.

There is no separate, specific standalone online casino gambling act in Poland, it is regulated by the same gambling act, which regulates brick & mortar casino (you can see this in the next section above the list of the Polish casinos).

Poland and the EU gambling laws: Because Poland is an EU country Article 56 TFEU4 and Article 8 of Directive 98/34/EC (EU gambling directives) apply.

According to these the current Polish online 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).

By scrolling below you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Polish players.

Land-based casinos in Poland

Legal status of casinos in Poland: legal since 1918, operators require a licence, slot halls are also legal

 

Land-based casinos are legal in Poland since 1918.

The first casino in the country opened in 1918, predating the Soviet regime. But casinos were made illegal once more in 1945, when Poland was forced to be a part of the Soviet Union, and were only made legal once again in 1989.

The first casino in the country was the one located within the Grand Hotel Sopot (you can see it below, in the list, it’s the second one).

The 2009 Act on Gambling Games1 is the main piece of the gambling legislation currently, and it regulates casinos, among other things.

There are very strict regulations in place regarding casinos. Among other things, there is a strict cap on the number and types of games they can have available, e.g.: a cap of 70, on the number of gaming machines. This is the reason why you don’t see big casinos in Poland.

Slot machines outside of casinos in pubs, slot halls and electronic casinos were made illegal.

UPDATE: However, Totalizator Sportowy Sp. z o.o. (the state-owned lottery company) received a monopoly in 2018 on slot halls.

/Comment: After the government banned all private operators, they realized they actually miss the tax revenue, so they swooped in and created a state owned monopoly…

Obviously, this garnered the ire of competing private operators and many took the Polish government to court; EU courts. Some of these legal proceedings are still ongoing, but it’s doubtful they will change much.

Nevertheless, it’s a good thing, this a clear violation of the free market within the EEA, regardless of what the politically motivated verdicts of the courts will be./

There are 50+ slot halls in Poland currently, and their number is growing fast. And there are around 15 bona fide casinos in the country (all of them small by international standards).

At the moment, the biggest casino operator present in the country is Century Casinos through a subsidiary (which goes by the name Casinos Poland Sp z o. o., formerly Orbis, and Casinos Poland CP, and various subsidiaries or joint ventures with other companies). They operate 8 out of the 15 casinos currently in operation, and admittedly all the better and bigger casinos are operated by them.

/Comment: No wonder, Century Casino was created by former employees of Casinos Austria with connections to the 1%, you can’t compete with that sort of money.

No wonder the Polish government created a monopoly when it comes to slot halls, if there was real free market the 1% would buy up and own everting (which is what they want). Just to put the decision of the Polish government into context, this the other side of the coin./

Olympic Casino Group used to be present in the Polish casino sector as well, but they left the market in 2016.

This was most likely the result of the restricting slot machines to casinos, because the main profile of Olympic casinos is actually the operation of so called “electronic casinos” (slots + electronic tables, no live dealers, no card games, not real casinos), which are a subtype of slot halls, which is a monopoly of the state owned gambling monopoly.

The largest casino in Poland is the Marriott Hotel and Casino located in Warsaw, you can read more about the venue in the list below.

You can find all the currently operating brick and mortar casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Poland?

Yes, both locals and tourists can visit the casinos in Poland.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Poland:

Casino 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:

  • a., Polish companies owned by Polish people residing in Poland.
  • b., Since 2016 foreign companies are also eligible through a Polish subsidiary, with a Polish representative living in Poland.

 

There can only be one casino 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 van be found in the Providing Services through Electronic Means, a.k.a E-Commerce Act (Ustawa o świadczeniu usług drogą elektroniczną).

List of all the top 12 biggest and best rated casinos in Poland

This is a list of the 12 biggest and best rated currently operating casinos in the country, with address, opening hours, number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, reviews and a video of each gambling establishment if one is available.

 

1., Marriott Hotel & Casino Warsaw
This is the picture of the main building of the Marriott Hotel and Casino in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. This is currently the biggest casino in the country. This is the first element on this list of all 12 Polish casinos currently in operation. You can find the other venues on the list below this one. You can read more about this gambling establishment to the right of the picture.

Marriott Hotel and Casino Warsaw

Marriott Hotel & Casino Warsaw, address: al. Jerozolimskie 65/79, 00-697 Warszawa

The biggest casino in all of Poland currently is the Mariott Hotel & Casino in the capital of Poland. Located in the Marriot Hotel tower (40 floors, typical modern, nowadays very  fashionable skyscraper, looks very out of place in Poland, doe not fit the city IMO).

This is the flagship casino of Casinos Poland Sp z o. o. (a subsidiary of Century Casinos), which operates 8 casinos in Poland, making it the biggest casino operator. This is one of the three casinos in Warsaw, the capital in Poland.

Even though they operate the best and biggest casino of Poland, I have mixed feelings about this company and certain practices of theirs, you can read more about this at Casino Lodz, the third casino on this list.

Despite the importance, and despite this being the biggest and best rated casinos in all of Poland it has no official online presence whatsoever (and the website of Marriot doesn’t even mention the casino). Which I assume is very incontinent for the many tourists visiting.

However, I did managed to gather all the most important information from secondary sources (e.g: number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, covid-19 info), you can see them below. If they are not accurate please let me know in the comments section.

/Comment: Technically the Casino at Marriott is actually two casinos in one, one is the Marriott Hotel Jerozolimskie 65/79, Warszawa 00-697 and the other one is the Marriott Hotel Galeria LIM, level -1, Jerozolimskie 65/79, Warszawa, 00-697. However, this is only a technicality, I counted them as one casino. Most people don’t even realize they are two separate casinos./

 

Games: around 70 gaming machines (slots, video poker, older slots, mostly from 2010-2016, no newer slots), and around 30 tables (baccarat, blackjack, roulette, some form of poker)

They have a VIP section (most of the tables are in the VIP section, only about 20 of them are accessible to the general public).

 

Video of Marriott Hotel & Casino Warsaw:

I couldn’t find any video of this casino online. If you know of any please share it in the comments section.

 

Opening hours: most casino listing websites and directories claim that it is open 24/7

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: from what I could find online, management of the Casino Marriott Warsaw requires a “suitable wearing”, which most probably means smart casual

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino does not get any reviews, only the Marriot Hotel gets reviews, and the casino is barely even mentioned in the reviews

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

2., Grand Hotel Sopot and Cristal Casino
This is a picture of Sofitel Grand Sopot Casino's building's front entrance. You can read more about this 5 star hotel complex and its casino to the right of the picture.

Sofitel Grand Sopot

Grand Hotel Sopot and Cristal Casino (a.k.a. Sofitel Grand Sopot), address: Powstancow Warszawy St 12/14, 81-718 Sopot

This magnificent 5 star hotel has a very small casino, which is called Cristal Casino Sopot (used to be called Orbis Casino).

Even though the casino itself is small, the building, and the location is magnificent and gorgeous. It’s also the oldest casino in Poland, originally opened in 1920 (and was closed during the Soviet occupation, only reopened in 1989 with a special permission as part of an effort to bring some life into the failing Soviet economy).

That is why Sofitel Grand Sopot’s casino gets second place, despite the size.

The website of Sofitel doesn’t mention the casino at all, and the casino doesn’t have any website (which is sadly very common among Polish casinos). Therefore, I had to scrape together the info you can find here from secondary sources (many of which are outdated sadly). If they are not accurate please let me know in the comments section, thank you.

The small Cristal Casino only has 25 gaming machines, 10 live dealer tables – 4 tables of american roulette (, which is always a bad sign in a European casino, has worse odds than the European roulette and does not fit the location, tells you that the casino wants you to lose as much as possible, and as fast as possible, dead giveaway, bad optics), 2 tables of blackjack, 2 stud poker tables. No poker room. Dress code is not mentioned anywhere online, but considering the clientele and that it is located in a 5 stars hotel I would say semi-formal, no mention of any entrance fee, 18+, bring ID and if you are a tourist, a passport too. Opening hours: slots 24/, tables have dealers from 4 PM to 4 AM every day. No VIP room. No COVID-19 info anywhere online.

 

Games: around 25 gaming machines (slots, video poker), and around 10 tables (4 American Roulette wheels, 2 blackjack, 2 poker tables, 2 Stud Poker)

 

Video of Marriott Hotel & Casino Warsaw:

I couldn’t find any video of this casino online. If you know of any please share it in the comments section.

 

Opening hours: most casino listing websites and directories claim that it is open 24/7, table open from 4pm – to 4am, daily

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: unknown, but considering that it is located ina 5 star hotel I would recommend semi-formal

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino gets good reviews, 4/5, no major problems

This is on of the 8 casinos of Casinos Poland Sp. z. o. o..

The casino is reportedly on the smaller side, around 400 m2.

Just like most Polish casinos the Manufaktura casino doesn’t have a website and therefore there is barely any info about it online (and even that little is mostly in Polish). Therefore, I couldn’t find much about this casino, if you know more please share it in the comments section.

 

Games: around 50 gaming machines (slots, video poker), and around 12 tables (4 American Roulette wheels, 2 blackjack, 2 poker tables, 2 Stud Poker)

Bitcoin casinos Poland

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Bitcoin is not recognized in Poland as a currency.

Bitcoin gambling is not specifically regulated. Consequently, there are no bitcoin, cryptocurrency gambling websites or bitcoin accepting land-based gambling establishments in Poland. And none of the slot halls of Totalizator Sportowy accept any kind of cryptocurrency.

The national lottery (or their online platform) also doesn’t accept bitcoin.

The only exception are the few licensed online gambling websites (you can see them below), they accept various alternative digital currencies through the payment processors they use. You can see them below.

 

 

Other forms of online gambling in Poland

When the Act on Gambling Games and its first amendments were introduced, it forbade practically all forms of online gambling, with very few exceptions. These are:

  • online sports betting (licence can be acquired by private companies as well)
  • online lottery (state monopoly)
  • online promotional raffles, lotteries (licence can be acquired by private companies as well)

 

Because the current online gambling legislation is not complaint changes are expected in the future. It is very likely that online casino games will be legalized (and poker will be considered an online casino game, which means de fact online poker will be legal as well). And eventually, likely lastly, online bingo will be legalized as well, considering that there are already many bingo halls in the country.

And in the far future cryptocurrency gambling will be legalized and regulated as well (already possible and commonplace with the use of payment processors btw., therefor,e this will only be a formality).

 

The following casino websites accept players from Poland:

Gamble responsibly,

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!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
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!
