Activity in gambling in Poland is subject to detailed legal regulations both directly resulting from the Act on gambling and from tax, penal and fiscal regulations and from acts on counteracting money laundering and terrorist financing. To conduct such an activity it is necessary to obtain permission in a form of administrative decision issued by the Minister of Finance.

With actualization of the act on gambling as of 2017 regulations related to activity in gambling, in particular, mutual betting in Poland were subject to essential changes. These changes were very effective and bring benefit for legally acting betting companies and gamblers.
