By Anna Wietrzyńska-Ciołkowska, Counsel, DLA Piper, Warsaw.

The website of the office of the Polish President recently published the information that last Friday, 31 July, the President signed the modified amendment to the Polish Gambling Act. The scope of the amendment is described in this earlier post.

The amendment will come into force 14 days following its official publication. Taking into consideration that on average it takes four weeks to have a signed bill published, we should expect the amendment to become binding law around mid-September.
