Polish Casinos

As in many other European countries, gambling was also banned in Poland for a long time. Only lottery and bingo games were allowed, and it was also possible to play sports betting in limited amounts. In November 2009, territorial casinos were allowed to open due to the economic strains that the country suffered. The law that brought this regulation is simply known as the “Gambling Law”. However, the law was very restrictive in many respects. To open a terrestrial casino, a very high amount of capital was required, and there was a population restriction: The casino could only be opened in places with a population of more than 250,000 people. This population constraint was determinative in terms of the number of casinos. For example, if you wanted to open a second casino in a city that already had a casino, the population would have to be 500,000 and above. In practice, the number of terrestrial casinos was very small, as the population of Poland is more than this numbers in just a few cities. Moreover, online gambling was still banned.
