It's clear that the lottery companies are trying to exert pressure. After all, they lose a lot of customers. These are the biggest criminals with their ridiculous chances of winning

About all the "experts" in these reports. Nothing else will happen despite this big shouting. For payment blocking & Co. all 16 federal states must agree and Schleswig-Holstein is clearly against a ban and insists on EU-compliant regulation of the gambling market.

Germany's bureaucracy is somehow hostile to technology and progress. Remember the discussion about the Interstate Broadcasting Treaty. There was also something about everyone who has a YouTube channel having to apply for a broadcasting license.

In Germany, people always try to ban things, but that hardly ever works. Bans bring nothing at all in this area and in the end only harm the state itself (which could earn money) and the gambling addicts, who could be better protected by a proper regulation. In practice, gambling addicts in Germany are not really effectively protected offline, otherwise I could understand this discussion. If you are addicted to gambling and are banned from the casinos, you can still gamble in gas stations, gaming arcades, or anywhere else. You can also buy scratch tickets and play the lottery if you are banned. You are not allowed to do that, because banned players would be denied payouts, but who knows.

Actually, the report should not be about how to implement payment blocking, but rather how to effectively improve Player protection by regulating the gambling market (not only online).

The aim is to get the small players to go back to the arcades and the high rollers to the casinos. I hope that if a ban comes and is implemented in 2 or 3 years, all the small players storm the casinos and play with a winning line on 10 cents and block the machines for the "good" players all day and do not go back to the arcades. It's boring to play with one payline but you'll still lose less in the long run than you would in gaming booths.

Paul Gauselmann has had problems with the tax authorities (which he got himself into) and has not been able to achieve the success online with his crappy Merkur games as he has in his offline rip-off halls. No resounding success with German players and no chance internationally anyway. Of course, he is now pushing the ban himself as a "Federal Cross of Merit bearer" and self-proclaimed saint, so that everything will be as nice as it used to be when you were still the market leader with the great "regulated gaming" in Germany ...
