Who is allowed to bet where?


The situation in Germany changed fundamentally as of July 2012. German sports gamblers were immediately allowed to bet online, even when on German soil (this was previously forbidden). The individual federal states granted licences to various sports betting providers, who must ensure that a 5% tax on every stake is paid to the tax authorities.

Note: Every citizen of any country is encouraged to find out about the laws in their home country to avoid the danger of illegal activity.
