Poland Next to Regulate Online Gambling

Polish Deputy Minister says Poland is prepared to regulate online gambling, and fuels guesses that it will indeed do so.

Poland is closer than ever to regulate online gambling.

Deputy Minister of Finance, Marek Kapica, said earlier this week that Poland is ready to move on with legalizing and regulating online gambling before the end of the year.

Italian Impact
Poland's official change of mind comes following the court decision on the Placanica case. The Italian court ruled that Italy cannot use criminal law to ban online gambling companies from elsewhere in Europe from catering to Italian players.

The Italian ruling and examples of countries that have successfully stimulated their economy by allowing online gambling, have opened up Poland's government to the idea.

Polish Wisdom
Kapica expressed this notion when he said: "We cannot control this process anyway and it is better that the budget at least derives some revenues from it."
