The first land casino in Poland was established in 1930, in Sopot. This gambling establishment remained as one of the only popular casinos for decades.
In the ‘80s and ‘90s, more and more land casinos began to emerge, where players would enjoy card games such as Blackjack and Poker. Today, there are dozens of legal land casinos offering where Polish players can place real money bets.
As far as online casinos for Polish players go, legislation began to take form in 2010. Since then, players were allowed to play the national lottery and place online sports bets at Polish-licensed companies.
Several years later, the Polish government legalized online slot machines, but they were only allowed to operate by several Polish companies. Market entry for International companies was almost impossible, and remains so to this day.
