Bookmakers Leave Poland
Pinnacle and Betfair have now closed operations in Poland. The reason? A new law has come into force, requiring betting operators to get licensed or get out. The Polish Gambling Laws that was approved in December 2016 and signed by President Andrzej Duda on January 5 charges betting operators at 12% of wagering turnover tax, practically giving them the choice to either leave or become a charity organization. Law also places further online restrictions to casino and slot games to thus hindering international stakeholders.
Following the exit of Bet365, William Hill and Energy Bet, Pinnacle and Betfair are now also leaving. No new Polish accounts will be created. Current users have their accounts put on hold and funds will be returned. There's that.
