Check out Casinomeister News - this ban came in on January 1st.

The European Union compliance guys are not happy about it and the Germans could be facing legal sanctions.

I'm sure Germany will take the same route the USA did by paying them off in other areas.

That's a definite possibility, I think - there were media reports last year of a possible deal between the EC and Germany whereby if the Germans agreed to open up their sportsbetting market the EC would take a more lenient approach to other aspects of an online gambling ban.

IMO that would not have been a good idea, because it would have set a precedent for excluding online casino and poker room gambling by other EU nations that have state monopolies (like France and Sweden)

It's a shame, and it sounds like a Wagerworks (Alderney?) decision.

But kudos to GetMinted (and Virgin it appears) for actually giving Germans some decent notice and proper information to withdraw their funds rather than the sudden closures we witnessed t some places when the USA debarcle occurred. Wagerworks/Alderney - doing things the right way again.

If I was a friendly MG or Crypto operator, who knew a friendly Wagerworks operator... I wonder if I could come to some agreement for the database of German accounts... :rolleyes:
