Auf Wiedersehen Mr Green

iGaming operator Mr Green, which operates a popular online casino alongside other iGaming properties has today taken the decision to stop operating a sports betting service in Germany. With the operator ceasing with immediate effect all sportsbook activity in the country.

In a communication sent out this morning to their affiliate partners, Mr Green which was acquired by William Hill plc at the end of 2018, said: “Due to recent gambling regulation changes in Germany, Mr Green is closing all German sports betting operations with immediate effect.”

“We kindly ask you to remove all Sportsbook content from your German marketing channels as soon as possible.”

In March last year, Germany’s 16 States approved the country’s federal gambling treaty, which allows  the application for sports betting licenses as from the 1st January this year. However, to receive a betting licence, operators must ensure they can demonstrate they have no online casino operation in the country.

Hence Mr Green in taking this action that they have announced this morning.
