Jarosław Gowin – Minister of Science and Higher Education, has present to local media his plans for changes in gambling law, to some intentions the release of the government’s draft on proposed amendments to the gambling laws.

The Minister suggested that by changing the tax on sports betting from 12% to 20% of gross gaming revenue (GGR), and regulating and licensing online casino and poker, the government could raise more tax revenue, allocating 10 percent of this to fund problem gambling initiatives and provide donations to the country’s Olympic committee.

Gowin appears to take a pragmatic view of the online gambling industry, suggesting that internet betting and wagering is a fact of life, and the government and people of Poland might as well benefit from a regulated, licensed and taxed industry.

Polish sports bodies – especially football – appear to be supportive of Gowin’s ideas, which would enable them to benefit from advertising and sponsorships from properly licensed gambling companies.

Gowin could find himself in conflict with his fellow Minister responsible for the Finance portfolio, who earlier this year spoke out against any further expansion of gambling in Poland.
