Romania-based Superbet has announced it pushed back the launch of its Polish-facing online sportsbook.
Poland.- Polish punters will still have to wait to play on Romania-based gambling operator Superbet’s online sportsbook as its launch has been delayed. The company announced that, despite expecting to launch its business during the third quarter of the year, it is now targetting the final three months of 2018 to begin operating.
Superbet had received a Polish land-based betting licence in October, a necessary step before joining the very few companies that operate in the online segment. Shortly after, it began working on its online product but failed to complete the task by its original deadline, Superbet Polska CEO Aleš Dobeš told Polish gambling affiliate E-PLAYBET.
According to Dobeš, Superbet was engaged in “intensive work” on the online product but, since it still needed rigorous testing, the documents required by Poland’s Ministry of Finance won’t be submitted yet.
Once it finally begins operating in Poland, Superbet will become the 10th company to take sports wagers in the country. The Polish authorities have still to figure out how to attract operators to the country since the 12% tax on online betting turnover and the online casino monopoly of the state-run Totalizator Sportowy seem to be driving most of them away.
