Last Saturday Minister of Finance mentioned that a draft of the new Polish Gambling Act will be ready by the end of April for further legislative work.

There are rumours that it may introduce a 20% gaming tax on betting revenue instead of the 12% turnover tax. Some sources speculate that it may also regulate poker, including online poker.

The income from the gaming tax will be used to finance the increased budget needs of the Polish government (including the family support program 500plus).
