Thursday June 30, 2011 : Bookmaker will not apply for Polish licence
 
Bookmaker Ladbrokes have advised players and affiliates that the company will no longer continue taking bets and registrations from Polish IP Addresses or players who have their country of residence listed as Poland.
 
New Polish gambling legalization, due to come into force in July 2011, allows for operators to offer sports betting only under a Polish licence, which Ladbrokes doesn't intend applying for as it already operates under a European Union licence.
 
The bookmaker communicated with existing players requesting them to withdraw all funds from their Ladbrokes account and will settle outstanding affiliate payments towards the end of July 2011.
