Overview Today the Polish market is made up of six entities including the lottery (Totalizator Sportowy and PML), casinos, gaming halls, bingo halls, sports betting and AWPs (street gaming). Since the gambling act came into play in November 2010 there have been a number of inspections of AWPs by government agencies. According to statistics by the third quarter of 2009 there were 55,000 AWPs. By January 2010 only half of these were in operation and today half again. Revenue from the gambling and amusement licences amount to €1.6bn and the industry in general has declined by 38 per cent over the last year. Poland suffers from very strict regulations and new licences have been banned whilst old licences are not being renewed and the industry is shrinking.


Taxation in Poland is €400 per machine per month. The 15,000 or so AWPs is just one third of the amount back in 2009. There are 271 gaming arcades which saw revenues of PLN597m in 2010. Meanwhile Casino revenues amounted to PLN260m (€58m) and for the first two quarters of 2011 it came to PLN122m, a drop of seven per cent compared to the same period in 2010. Some casinos like the one in Kielce have closed due to decreasing revenues.
