German online gambling market: new chapter

This week, the british gvc holdings gambling operator, bwin brenda motherboard, told its partners that the online casino-oriented casino belonging to him will no longer receive paypal. News daily quotes the gvc letter, which states that the paypal option will become inaccessible to german customers from december 19.

Many online casino sites gradually limit their activities associated with germany, from the moment of publication at the end of 2017 a court decision prohibiting international operators to provide services to german players. This week, many operators followed the example, including the brand gauselmann group merkur gaming, whose clients learned that from december 18, access to the site of the online casino will stop.

New restrictions both merkur and gvc coincide with the expiration of licenses for online casino activities issued six years ago by the schleswig-holstein authorities. The staff, as you know, did not sign the federal gambling treaty of 2012, which limited the possibilities of the igor industry to online betting. Instead, the state authorities have chosen their own full-spectrome online licensing course.

Since then, the german gambling market is constantly subjected to new changes. Both local and international courts suppress unsuccessful government attempts to harmonize two competing licensing systems.

Soon, after the state licensed a casino, the new government took the brazers of the board and decided that he still sign a federal contract, leaving in the ignorant of newly new licensees. In 2017, power in the state replaced again, it was decided to maintain the old licensing format. The federal contract was rejected again. However, statements regarding the first licensees and their fate on the market did not follow.

Initially, the licenses received 12 companies: among them pokerstars, bet365, bet-at-home, tipico and skill on net. Still unknown as these operators – especially those who have less sustainable connections with germany than merkur or bwin gvc – intend to act in the future.

Recall that the german association of gaming machine manufacturers (deutsche automatenwirtschaft) supported large-scale liberalization of gambling market in germany.
