Wybrane aspekty nowelizacji ustawy o grach hazardowych w świetle prawa unijnego

Maria Lewandowicz


This article aims to explicate certain amendments to the Polish Gambling Act introduced by the Act of 15 December 2016 on amendments to the Gambling Act and certain other acts (Dziennik Ustaw of 2017, item 88), with particular consideration given to the existing case-law of theEuropean Court of Justice concerning free movement of services and the freedom of establishment. Analyses are performed using the legal comparative method, carried out first on the temporal plane, on the microscale of the Polish gambling legislation (acomparison of formerly binding provisions and gambling regulations which came into force on 1 April 2017), and then on the macroscale of normative rules regulating gambling markets of selected EU Member States. The April amendments of the Gambling Act introduced numerous changes contributing to improved transparency of the gambling and betting market. The majority of these changes have the potential to minimize the negative social phenomena related to gambling, particularly to minimize the presence of the phenomenon of the informal sector (“grey economy”).
