EnergyBet withdraws from Polish market
21 Mar 2017
EnergyBet management have been watching developments regarding regulations in Poland closely for some time, and had hoped that the Polish government would listen to the advice of the European Union and other authorities. Sadly, however, this was not the case, and the new highly restrictive and hostile regulatory environment has made continued operations unviable.
EnergyBet CEO Marcin Sapinski explained, "The Polish market has always been very important to us, and we share the frustration of Polish customers. We will continue to monitor developments, with the aim of returning to the Polish market if things change. In the meantime, we would like to thank our Polish customers for their understanding."
EnergyBet will cease to direct advertising or promotions to the Polish market, and all EnergyBet affiliate partners have been instructed to remove advertising and promotions aimed at the Polish market, before 1 April 2017. Accounts for all Polish residents will be closed and any balances returned, with bets placed before the cut-off date being honored. The decision to cease offering EnergyBet services to customers is Poland was not taken lightly, and any resulting inconvenience and disappointment is very much regretted.
