    Default Polish P.M. wants online gambling ban

    There have been reports on the Web, including at Online Casino Reports, that Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk wants to ban online gambling in the country.

    This comes on the heels of four Polish officials being forced to resign on "suspicion of letting gaming industry lobbyists exert inappropriate influence on political decisions."

    Online Casino Reports says that the first draft of the proposed reform will be released in two weeks.

    Yea, what's the point of having the EU is everyone ignores it.

    May I know the breakdown of the list you have for those anti's?
    I hope it couldn't dominate my list of pros. I got at least 60 percent of countries here. Tell me what you got? hehe/

    Default Poland and its gaming legislation

    A measure like that is not only discriminatory against consumers but it could also mean a major hindrance for Polish football clubs and supporters as if the law was to be passed, it would mean that it will be illegal for Polish football teams, or Polish leagues, to bear the logos or names of online betting companies.

    In addition, Egaming is believed to bring in about 13 million euro a season into Polish football and if the new law was to come into force, it would mean that this revenue would indeed disappear.

    This initiative is the result of a lack of knowledge as regards the Egaming industry. This has been the case in the European Parliament where MEPs could not agree as regards a report that had been presented in the matter.

    The truth is that if the EU is supposed to be a truly open and single European market, it should be possible for consumers to choose the operator they want wherever they are based on. The initiative Right2bet advocates a truly open European market in the gaming sector. Have a look at the right2bet website and sign the petition that will be presented to the European authorities.
