German Gambling Regulator To Betting Operators: Stop Online Gambling And Poker Offering Or Lose License!

The Darmstadt Regional Council (DRC), Germany’s sports gambling licensing authority, told sports betting licensees to stop offering any online gambling or poker if they do not want to lose their betting license.

Although the new regulations for the licensing process are still delayed, interim rules should be in full force by next year.

The DRC said in a statement, “Once the third amended State Treaty enters into force, sports betting providers that continue to operate in the German market without obtaining permission to do so can expect to be sanctioned.”

The regulator also warned, “if a license application is not submitted to the Darmstadt Regional Council, we will immediately prohibit illegal operations.”

Germany has always been strict with regards to gambling operations in the country. As a matter of fact, PayPal recently revised its terms of use in German. According to the revised terms, online gambling operators are not allowed to use PayPal’s online gambling platform to process payments for gambling products that are illegal within the jurisdiction they are being used.

One should note that online casino games are not legal in Germany except for the state of Schleswig-Holstein. Because of this, the use of PayPal for fund transfers related to online gambling in other parts of Germany will not be possible anymore.
