The UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Act) was passed in 2006. Since then Germany has followed by having signed an agreement, starting Jan.1st this year to ban web based gambling.
Websites with casinos, and or poker rooms and sports betting has been blocked by financial institutions. This will prevent all transactions to or from gambling sites, in Germany. But they are allowing land based casinos to operate, because they think land based can be controlled.
I think they are going to be really surprised! This law looks very obvious, to me that, that government is going to enjoy the profits from land based casinos, and don’t want to share it.
November 2007, the court said that to ban online gambling was impossible to enforce, thus it was ruled null and void. But somehow the government ministers found a way around it.
Online gambling bans have become a worldwide concern. It needs to be regulated, but not to be completely banned. This makes it obvious that these decisions are not based on morality, but rather a business or state ran monopoly. Like Germany has done.
As this New Year begins, it should be a year of HOPE for online gambling. All like poker and sports betting need to pull together and protest the bans. Don’t let them take away the fun for millions all around the world!!
