William Hill withdraws from Poland

iam Hill has become the latest operator to pull its services from the Polish market.

A number of operators are exiting Poland, in the wake of the Polish government’s introduction of a 12% tax on wagering turnover in December 2016.

The new regulations have been met with outcry by several operators, claiming that the Polish market is now unprofitable, and that the government is purposely creating favourable conditions for state-owned firm Totalizator Sportowy.

Willliam Hill confirmed to affiliates and customers that its products will not be available in the country from 1 April, with players asked to withdraw any funds in their accounts beforehand.

Any customers wishing to withdraw funds beyond that point will need to seek the help of Hills’ customer service team, while affiliates have also been instructed to remove any marketing material aimed at Polish customers from their websites.

The British bookmaker signed off by apologising for any inconvenience caused, and registering its intention to return to the market in the future, should regulatory circumstances change.

Hills has joined a number of operators in an exodus from the Polish market, including EnergyBet and Pinnacle.
