Ignorance is no defense against punishment.

Anything that doesn't have a DE license is now considered illegal by the authorities.

Ignorance does not protect against punishment, but no judge would actually impose a penalty on a player for all the stuff with a German site and the constant Made in Germany impression


The outcry would be too great and what is the worst thing you can do compared to other "criminal offenses"? Nothing, you just spend your own money

That's why it's much easier to simply grab the providers and lift a finger at the players and stop the proceedings

Paying out via the bank is always totally stupid, even with legal providers, because no bank would classify a player as a good customer

You're right of course. I just found the statement in the previous post very naive.

Tandori wrote on 15.05.2023 at 14:21: Hello everyone,

i'm still fairly new to gambling and a little unsure if I've gotten myself into hot water.

At the weekend I signed up to an online casino that "welcomes Germans".
However, the company is actually based in Gibraltar. Ergo no German gambling license.

I chose the casino because you can play Roulette there. Signed up, deposited a few euros and won a bit.
I quickly requested a payout and was then informed by my girlfriend (she is more sensible than me) that this could backfire.

Now I've read that using such casinos is illegal and, in the worst case, can result in a prison sentence.

Does anyone have any experience with foreign casinos and winnings paid out?
Is it possible to cheat a little by having the wins paid out via BTC?

Greetings to the group
Tandori

Don't draw by lot, go straight to prison.....



Nothing happens at all

Just look at the gambling authority's whitelist...that's doable.

If you really don't know because you've never gambled before, okay. But if you already know that there are licensed and unlicensed casinos, it shouldn't be a problem to find out which ones are which.

Sports betting is also illegal if it's not licensed (just to start with)

If your point is that, in case of doubt, you want to claim that legal and illegal are difficult to distinguish... Then go ahead, you must know for yourself... 🤷
In principle, of course, ignorance is no defense against punishment... Even if no penalties have been imposed in this area so far!
