gyBet has announced it will be withdrawing from the Polish market and will cease to offer services to customer as of 1 April 2017. The news comes after many other online international gambling services have withdrawn from the market.

EnergyBet management have said they have been watching developments regarding regulations in Poland “closely for some time”.

Like many other companies in the gambling sector, EnergyBet had hoped that the Polish government would listen to the advice of the European Union and other authorities.

Nonetheless, the Polish Government's new "highly restrictive and hostile regulatory environment" made continued operations nonviable.

Accounts for all Polish residents will be closed and any balances returned, with bets placed before the cut-off date being honoured. In a statement the company says: “The decision to cease offering EnergyBet services to customers in Poland was not taken lightly, and any resulting inconvenience and disappointment is very much regretted.”

EnergyBet CEO Marcin Sapinski says: “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.”
