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.
How to Bet with Pinnacle and Betfair in Poland
If you still want to place bets, the solution is betting brokers, such as Asianconnect and Sportmarket. Both are really outstanding services that can solve this issue, along with helping you find the best odds and get the highest limits.

Yeah polish politics are a big idiots!
and they try to tell that it's all in care for citizens....
What about bet365?? Hawow Can we play in poland ??
Bet365 is not offered via agents, you need to find some friend/relative in UK to open an account on his name for you. Also you will need VPN to access if bet365 is blocked in Poland
ok thx for the info, but why is my account still working?
EDITOR can you open account for me ?? or maybe you know somebody who can ??
i try to play live in Unibet but this bookie is total crap
The greatest and worst evil that human kind ever saw: POLITICIANS !
Same happened in CZ this year and I am affraid that more countries will follow as governments are tapping in every additional potential source of revenue so here we go. CZ was a minor country but Poland is a bigger market and bookies like Bet365 or Betfair will probably have to rethink their strategy at some point if more countries are cutting them off. The good thing is that we have some good local bookies in CZ who are partially doing the job now.
From 1Luly 2017 polish politics, morons they did blocked gambling web sites and payments - skrill, netteler in Poland
@Gisele ...skrill too? but tell me how?! Yesterday I send money from Unibet to my account on skrill and I can normally use my ATM card.. u have wrong info dude :/
He said from 1st July, but I dont think they can block e-wallets...its gamble law, not e-wallets.
@thinktwice right, I miss that but @Gisele can u share this article about skrill?
Polish goverment wants blocked e-wallets,brokers, pokersites and betting. But i think skrill and neteller still will be available. Only polish payments will be blocked like: przelewy24,dotpay etc.
Yes skrill and neteller still will be available but przelewy24 etc have to blocked payments to foreign bookmakers and pokersites...

Comment is hidden because tipster is banned.
Politics fault, they dont know nothing about bets and how much they are loosing... the same in Portugal.
They did the same in France 6 years ago. Everybody here already found an alternative (VPN...)
Hello guys ! In case you are not able to connect to some bookmaker, you do not need a VPN. Change your DNS settings in your PC to the Google public DNS (220.127.116.11). Your government do instruct the ISP providers to disable the bookmaker sites and they are just changing the DNS records on their servers. So if you are using Google's DNS servers, you do not have any issues. For your mobile devices you can use the DNSet software from the playstores or you must root your device. Enjoy!
Hello @Editor and all of you. In order to bet at Pinnacle through PinBet88 via Asianconnect in Greece, I must use VPN ? Pinnacle is restricted in Greece . I DO can login at Pinbet88 right now with username and password provided by asianconnect WITHOUT VPN, but I don't want to have troubles at the future .. So,is VPN a must-use for not get limited?? Thank You !
An answer please @Editor ?
You can use a VPN, but really all you need is a proxy IP that originates from a country that is on Pinnacle's whitelist.

How safe is it to use the polish bank account for the transactions between spormarket and polish bank? I know that they also have muchbetter. Wouldn't it be a safer choice? Regarding the VPN. Everything is working with surfshark vpn.
@Editor would be very thankful for your help
No idea about Polish law, but in general there should be bank secrecy laws, i.e. you should be prosecuted for something and there must be a court order, otherwise banks don't release info for their customers just like that
