European Gaming Media and Events if famous to bringing quality content about the gambling industry and it’s not holding back when it comes to adding value to their events. In a recent interview with the latest announced speaker (Piotr Dynowski), the team would like to give a short intro about what to expect to hear about the Polish gambling market at Prague Gaming Summit.


When asked about a your personal opinion about the European gambling industry and to compare it with the situation in Poland, Piotr replied the following: 


“Unfortunately, Poland is still one of the most restrictive markets in Europe with respect to gambling and doing business by gambling operators in Poland is still pretty difficult, but apparently the changes to the Polish gambling regulations introduced last year were quite beneficial to the licensed betting operators and helped them almost double their turnover in comparison to the previous years. In general running gambling business, even in the EU, is very difficult as legal regulations differ significantly from country to country, some are very restrictive, others pretty liberal, and it is one of probably very few industry sectors left in the EU that are still completely unharmonised and where it seems the fundamental freedoms on which the EU is based do not really apply. Gambling industry has also to struggle all the time with negative perception by many governments and sometimes also negative image in the society. Generally gambling is still often perceived as something a little doggy and causing a lot of harm to the society despite all the efforts of the industry towards fraud protection, fighting gambling addiction and other important initiatives to prove that it is not a different industry than  any other entertainment industries.”
