Betclic plans Polish return

Betlic sets plans in motion for its homecoming to the Polish market

The Betclic brand is set to make its return to the online gambling market in Poland following last year’s ban for breaking national laws.

Betclic had been regarded as one of the leading operators in Poland for a number of years, but was blacklisted from the market when new gambling laws came into effect in 2017.

However, it seems Betclic could soon resurface in Poland after BEM Operations, a subsidiary of the Betclic Everest Group, attained a national sports betting licence.

Betclic holds online gambling licences in Malta and Gibraltar.

A number of other operators also followed Betclic out of Poland such as Betfair, William Hill, Pinnacle and EnergyBet.

Poland’s Ministry of Finance also added Betclic to its blacklist of companies that are blocked from offering gambling services in the country.

BEM was included in the recently updated list of online sports betting licences on the Ministry of Finance’s website and now the company is seeking to re-establish the Betclic domain.

If the return was successful, the firm would be restricted to only accepting online sports wagers, as underlined in the national gambling laws of Poland. The state-run Totalizator Sportowy is the only approved operator of internet casino games.

The Ministry of Finance now lists a total of 10 companies that hold online sports betting licences. These include Fortuna, Milenium, Star – Typ Sport, Totolotek, E-Toto, forBET, LV BET, Totalbet, Cherry Online Polska and now BEM. All licensed operators face a tax rate of 12% on betting turnover.

Betclic provides online sports betting, poker, casino and games. Betclic is licenced and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority. For UK customers the firm is Betclic Everest (Gibraltar) Limited, and is licenced and regulated by the GB Gambling Commission.
