The EU Court of Justice ruled on Thursday that, in accordance with the gambling Act, the Polish authorities have the right to require licenses for operating casinos and to punish for not having them, even though these regulations have not been notified to the European Commission.

The case concerned two Poles accused of running slot machine games without a license which was a violation of Polish law.

The accused defended themselves, arguing that the requirement for a permit constitutes a technical regulation as specified in the EU Directive.

They claimed that Poland had not informed the European Commission about the legislation on concessions and therefore cannot rely on it in the indictment.

The Court of Justice in Luxembourg decided on Thursday that the Polish gambling Act does not fall within the scope of technical regulations, thereby admitting that the Polish authorities were right.
