Poland says it wants to finance the building of stadiums for the 2012 European Football Cup with a tax on all gambling in the country until 2015.

But the Polish Finance Ministry claims the 10% tax — to be levied on ALL gambling transactions, both online and off — will not dent the pastime’s popularity.

Deputy Finance Minister Jacek Kapica told the Gazeta Prawna newspaper that all gambling taxes in Poland will be reviewed next year.
