The Ministry of Finance boasted that it located 17 700 users of illegal gambling websites and will seek to bring them to court on the grounds of the regulations of the Tax Penal Code. This approach has been successful in 349 cases.
– The entire massive campaign against gambling initiated by the former government has proven ineffective – complains Mariusz Korzeb, expert of Employers of Poland. – Neither arcades nor online gambling have been addressed appropriately. On the contrary: in the latter case, the market is growing, but the state does not profit from that at all, as all profits are transferred abroad – adds Korzeb. The lack of a clear information campaign means that even if they knew that they are breaking the law, it would be easy for them to defend themselves before court.
