8. Main Content
The regulation defines the detailed conditions for managing and operating an information and communications system which records data relating to the correct operation of gaming machines at arcades by a State Treasury entity acting as the state monopoly in this field. The system is to be managed in such a way as to allow data to be recorded securely, guaranteeing the integrity, completeness, confidentiality and accountability thereof, as well as the possibility to reproduce the data. The disclosure requirements regarding the recording of events have also been defined.


9. Brief Statement of Grounds
The adoption of the Act of 15 December 2016 on the amendment of the Gambling Activities Act and certain other acts (Notification No 2016/398/PL) means that it is now permitted to organise gambling on gaming machines not found in casinos. In order to ensure that the main objectives of the Act (i.e. to protect players against the negative effects of gambling) are implemented, it has become necessary to ensure an appropriate level of supervision of games at gaming arcades. Due to the planned dispersal of gaming arcades throughout the country and the need to ensure that the current situation in this segment is monitored, the implementation of supervision by inspection bodies under the Minister for Public Finance was deemed insufficient. Maximum efficiency is ensured by the ongoing collection of data from each machine and the central processing thereof. This also allows statistical data relating to these games to be collected. In light of the above, the entity acting as the state monopoly on gaming machines at arcades has been instructed, under the provisions of the above Act, to manage an information and communications system which records data relating to the correct operation of gaming machines at arcades. The regulation implements the statutory authorisation under Article 15ba(7) of the Gambling Activities Act of 19 November 2009, as amended by the Act of 15 December 2016 on the amendment of the Gambling Activities Act and certain other acts.
