Germany’s gaming regulator Glucksspielbehorde will request internet service providers to voluntarily block unlicensed gambling operators.


The regulator previously announced a plan to use payment and IP address blocking to stop unlicensed operators from taking bets.

The regulator acknowledged this encroaches on the fundamental rights of providers and users but that it does not breach any European regulations in terms of freedom of service and establishment.
