The new law put in place in Germany can not be taken lightly by Europe’s online gaming industry, as it is believed to have a very poor effect on foreign competition in the gaming market in the country. Moreover, Germany is thought to have disregarded laws for the free movement of services the European Union has.
According to the new law, there will be no online gambling on anything except horse racing.
The European Commission is about to start a legal action against Germany in addition to the one started last year.
The European Court of Justice will make final decision. So, Germany will either have to change their laws or the country will be fined for the current laws.
