Germany to Ban Online Gambling Jan. 1 Under Accord by States

Dec. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Online gambling will be banned in Germany as of Jan. 1 after German states ratified an accord that preserves the country's state monopoly for lotteries and most forms of betting.

I would assume that this affects online poker also. Seems like there has been a large push recently from the poker sites into the German market.

So this means if someone is silent for awhile gives you the right to kick them down so they will be silent again.
Give C some Credit here at least.
I have great Meds for you to take to help you if you like.:lolup:

Can we keep this thread on track please?

Lojo - if I need to put you on break again, I will - and then that's it - no more Lojo.

As for Casinomeister, this is an English site that does not target Germans or German speaking people. I have always had a hands off policy for German marketing and plan to keep it this way; this site has always operated within the law. If I have to turn the banners off for our German guests, then I will.

wow!!

Lojo

Whats your agenda? I posted an article, and included a reference to 2 people I seriously respect, Jetset & CM (Both comments intended to be funny, and no offense appears to have been taken by either of them). The article is very relevant to the industry, from a good source, and important to very large number of people who read this forum.

As for me not responding to a post, well, hey, Its between Christmas & New Year and I have a new son, I don't spend every moment in front of my pc. If you have an issue with that, go see a shrink. Check the times on the posts, it took 12 hours for the first response, and over 30 hours for you to spew your tripe (and I quote "I want c_note to expose himself and his motive or keep his trap shut."), and you expect me to be sitting and waiting joyfully to respond?

This is now the second time you have "called me out". Are you stalking me or something? I am 60lbs overweight, hairy, have loads of bad habits and don't care what the neighbors think. Not much to look at all. Maybe you should be looking elsewhere for love (and your pickup lines suck).

And lastly, these 2 quotes of yours :

She is not the mother of India, and has nothing to do with Afghanistan, she is Pakistani, read all about her here

:notworthy to Jetset & CM 'cos they deserve it

Lojo, you get one of these :baby:
Oh, yeah, and you get put on my ignore list, you are not worth the effort anymore

But back to Germany....

The European Commission is unlikely to look kindly on this, assuming the German states press ahead with it on January 1. The principle is not too dissimilar to the US and its WTO problem i.e. only support those principles that you like and suit you.

In this case the motivation seems to be blatant protectionism of state gambling monopolies, and the top European gambling companies have already served notice that they intend to contest any such moves in the courts.

That, and the liklihood that the EC will haul Germany into the European Court of Justice, is something the Germans must know they are at risk of suffering here.

Sigh! Actually, I sorta expected this to come from Lojo after his break. What else from one who is so starved for words. However, the respectable Ms Bhutto died for her country and this is something that should not be taken too lightly.

I did notice that nearly everyday there are quite a large number of members who browse this forum but dont seem to have posted. Lojo, your posts will frighten them so if only you could try to give some suggestions as how to encourage these(newbies?) to post, it may be far more constructive. How about that for a challenge.

Ah, my always diplomatic friend, chuchu. Thank you.
  • Per c_note, it is my honor to be on your ignore list.
  • Per jetset, I'm quite well aware of world history and my statement that Madam is the Mother of India stands, touche' ? ( Had this most important person not been brutally assasinated she would have reunited Hindi and Musli alike, and the artificial division by religion would have fallen, making her the sovereign Mother of India... and so she remains in my heart and mind)
  • Per Rob, I apologize that my drunken emotions got the best of me, one must sleep now and then if one drinks as i do sometimes.
Per our gracious Host: note taken, expect no more of that behavior.
Per others, no comment.

To the anonymous reader: you have just seen the last puddle of a meltdown of a knowledgable and helpful member (moi) fear not, there are enough guard dogs of decency here to ensure that your contributions will be respected.

Per c_note again, if you are reading this; I assumed you were goading. Your secretiveness does you no favors.

Afraid I find your logic here unfathomable, Lojo - not an unusual experience LOL.

It's never been legal to advertise online casinos in German in Germany. That's why it's not done here (CM). I told this often to affiliate managers telling them that they are going to get some poor webmaster in a world of hurt who is unknowingly breaking the law.

To say it's okay? I wouldn't say that since nothing in this industry is 100% clear. There are constantly new laws being passed and it's difficult to figure how any jurisdiction is going to react.

It looks as though things are getting more bureaucratic here (if that's possible :rolleyes:), but it may be a good thing in the long haul. Look what happened in Italy, for example. Online gambling was prohibited a couple of years ago -- they tried blocking gambling sites, then they did a 180 degree turnaround and went for regulation. Italy is okay now.

With Germany, it's hard to say, but they will definitely lock horns with the EU Commission on this - especially with the Bwin victory fresh in their minds just from a few weeks ago.

One odd thing - there hasn't been a peep in the German newspapers, TV news etc., about this.

Article of the national treaty of gambling in germany

Here are three links and i know that i must post it in your language, sorry but its in german, while it make no fun to translate it in your language, its too difficult translating correct.

Its also very difficult to understand what you guys exactly mean and think, thats also the reason why i have not replied at some posts.

Who like and have interest to read it must translate it by himself.

Maybe Jetset make this own work. :rolleyes:

It will gives many complains in regarding to this feeble-mindedness, our country is not better as yours, but it will always give a way.

Personally i dont think about it at this moment

All countries should follow in the same steps as Italy and beggin to regulate, it cost tax payers money for these foolish fights against online gambling and it would make money if they were to regulate. Seems simple, so hopefully it does not keep getting worse and countries like the good ole USA especially and others start to wise up.
