New threat to Polish AWPs
A
new Polish Gaming Law has been proposed that would decimate
the AWP sector, if allowed to go through as planned this month.
Under the new legislation, all licenses for slot arcades and low-
wager betting machines outside casinos will be phased out. Within
the next six years, approximately 250 slot arcades, operating
approx. 10,000 slot machines, as well as all low denomination slot
machines will disappear from the market due to the expiration of the
underlying licenses. The operation of slot machines  will be permitted
in casinos only (up to 70 slot machines per casino).
The new law also introduces strict new six-year state licenses for
casinos, higher gaming taxes (50% instead of currently 45%) as
well as higher fees for the gaming sector. Except for duly organized
poker tournaments, poker cash games will be prohibited.
With regard to the legislation process and content of the new law,
Poland’s constitutional court is now to rule whether the newly
adopted law is “in line with the constitution”. Therefore, future
amendments or a suspension of the new law are considered to be
theoretically possible.
