German regulator requirement will make online gambling unprofitable, Gaming Intelligence

German regulator requirement will make online gambling unprofitable, Gaming Intelligence | i-Gaming and Gambling | Scoop.it

The regulators (Glücksspielreferenten) in each of the 16 German states have written draft guidelines for the implementation of the new State Treaty on Gaming that will make internet gaming practically impossible.

 

The age verification laws would require players to attend a face-to-face meeting in a post office or similar institution and show his or her identification.

 

A similar provision existed in a previous version of the State Treaty in 2008. Tipp24 lost 80 per cent of its customers and state operators such as Lotto Bavaria saw 78 per cent of its players depart.

The Bremen State Court (Landgericht Bremen) confirmed that:

- The Interstate Treaty expired at the end of 2011, and has not been prolonged in a valid legal fashion. The original time frame for the application of the law has expireced and a new one is not in place.

- The internet gambling ban in the Interstate Treaty cannot be applied and thus Lotto24 did not breach the provision of the law when offering gambling in Bremen.

 

According to the plaintiff – the state lottery of Bremen - Lotto24 breached competition law when it started offering its products in Bremen in breach of the internet gambling ban. On March 19, 2012 the Bremen State Court issued an order requesting Lotto24 to stop collecting players from Bremen. Lotto24 appealed. This order had been lifted by the May 10, 2012 appeal ruling.
