• Online Gambling to be Legalized in Poland

    29 April 2008

    U.S. needs to take heed to these other countries! They have realized how hard it will be to enforce the UIGEA Bill. Wake up America and smell the roses, this is one bill that is almost impossible to enforce.

    Jacek Kapica the Deputy Finance Minister stated in April there were plans to legalize online gambling by end of 2008.The previous conservative Law and Justice(PiS) ruled against legalizing online betting a year ago, saying the cost to the state would be tremendous.

    According to the analysts any budget revenues from online gambling would be a lot lower than at first suspected, and that the cost of regulating it would be to high.

    Kapica said: “We cannot control this process anyway and it is better that the budget at least derives some revenue from it,”

    The Polish Press suggested that Poland’s change was influenced by European Court of Justice ruling that said that Italy may not use criminal law to ban foreign online gambling companies from attracting Italian players.

    Now if the rest of the world would see it the same way, all of this could be settled quickly and easily!! Shows some countries are smarter than others huh?
