Playtech leaves Germany

Five leading Playtech online casinos chose to leave the German market due to the difficulty of doing business in the country. This land has no set rules for regulating the market of online gambling which makes it one of the most controversial in Western Europe.

Doing business in Germany is not easy

In February five online casinos powered by Playtech left Germany, Casino com and Mansion Casino included. Although their sites will actually be available for local players they will not be able to make real bets. Of course, the trial mode is by far not as entertaining as playing for real cash and will not likely keep the gamblers busy for a long period of time. The online gambling experts were disappointed with the decision of online casinos, but they say they understand them.

Why Playtech leaves the land

In Germany each Bundesland sets its own rules and terms for online gambling. The country being a solid state with solid internet field it is pretty difficult to provide online gambling services in Schleswig-Holstein and at the same time ban other lands from it. Apparently Playtech casinos decided to solve the issue when players from all around Germany were making bets in Schleswig-Holstein online casinos by simply closing them.
