PayPal Launches Crackdown on German Casino Scene

For some time now, there’s been a big push from the German government to try and take control of their use of the online casino industry. This has become a major issue for some time and has led to plenty of friction both in and around the German online casino industry. However, they have a new ally in their battle to stop Germans logging into non-legal casinos.

Working alongside payment processing giant PayPal, new changes to PayPal terms of use means that operators are prohibited from using PayPal to process any transactions carried out on non-legal casinos. This means casinos that are not part of the regulated German market and would mean that from October 21st, 2019, users will no longer be able to utilise PayPal for non-legal casinos.

This will be very interesting to see how it is handled across the board. With many governments trying to crack down on the use of unregulated casinos outside of national jurisdiction, this could become a common theme. It will be interesting to see what is done in the near future to try and determine how the market can be best managed.

With so much change coming across the European gaming scene, this move could be among the most important. With a massive globally used ally in the fight against non-regulated casino use, this could see many Germans change their use. It might see more domestic users turn to regulated casinos, which is positive.
