German Government prohibited online Casinos for the whole its territory and the only gambling entertainment the citizens can afford is horse racing. The ban actually contradicts the political views of the EU but this fact was of no importance and had little effect on the ban. Today they have one state comprising Germany which demands for this ban to be ended. The state leaders claim that in case if the national ban is not moved or reconsidered they will have to look for the internal solutions like interstate gambling licensing.
Anyway their supplications will be heard as the present treaty banning online casino will no longer be valid after 2012 and the German Monopoly will be left unprotected though the government has several times won the right to keep the closed gambling monopoly on German territory on the grounds of consumer protection, gambling victims issues which are easily solved when you have one system instead of out-of-control multiple entertainment organizations seeking for easy revenue.
