The law divides gambling into three classes:
- gambling card games (lottery, cards, craps, bingo);
- online roulette (American and European);
- bets on various events (tote and bookmaker's office);
- slot machines.
The law also regulates the legal age for starting money gambling. Only adult users over 18 years of age can play in online casinos. Under the age of 18, it is allowed to play the lotteries or tests its gaming skills in demo mode on slots that are available in almost every online casino in Poland. When playing in demo mode, it is impossible to win and lose, because bets are placed on virtual money.
Licenses for online casinos in Poland
Licenses in Poland are divided into three types:
- for cash bingo establishments;
- for land-based and online casinos;
- For establishments with bets.
Also, the law regulates the limitation on the number of gambling establishments. It is allowed to open only one such establishment for 250,000 inhabitants of the city, and if we are talking about a province, then no more than one casino per 650,000 inhabitants. This restriction does not apply to cruise ships.
Licenses are issued for a specific institution - a casino, a bingo salon, establishments with numbered games, and sports betting. Events are also separately licensed: poker tournaments, lottery issues. Only companies with a registered office in Poland can run a gambling establishment.
No separate permission required:
- promo lotteries;
- raffles lottery;
- bingo raffles.
It is necessary to submit a package of documents for getting a license. It includes information about the applicant, details of what the license is being asked for, an economic and financial investment plan, and other information. Insurance is also paid - for a casino license of EUR 260 thousand.
The casino, bingo, and betting venues are licensed for 6 years. Poker tournaments last 3 months and raffles, promo lotteries, and auditable lotteries 2 years. The cost of a license for gambling casinos and establishments depends on the gross income and the type of bets.
All casino games are prohibited online. Only online betting is allowed and is taxed at 12% of the proceeds. In this case, the tax is levied on the bets of the players.
As a result, there are few licensed operators:
- Fortuna Entertainment;

Responsible gambling in any currency
Local casinos offer to place bets in different currencies, including the local one - zloty, or the popular international currency - the dollar. You can withdraw money in different ways.
In every gambling game, it is important to remember that where there is a risk of winning money, you can lose there, so bets on real money should be made wisely.
There are many winning tactics and strategies for slots, but the only winning strategy that would give 100% is not, since the slot machine is based on the principle of generating random numbers that cannot be calculated in advance. You can only roughly calculate the outcome. Therefore, you should be careful and bet only the amount of money that you do not regret losing.
