A regular visitor to an online casino from Germany, who has accumulated certain debts for his long-term use of this service, managed to take advantage of the excellent knowledge of the law prohibiting online gambling in the country in time, as a result of which he successfully avoided paying his obligation at the most important moment. The district judge dismissed the lawsuit filed by the operator against the gamer, who did not want to pay off the debts with Landesbank Berlin AG, as the debt accumulated during his entertainment in an online casino that operated illegally on the territory of the state. If this situation occurred under any other circumstances, then the court would certainly go over to the side of the provider, which seeks to take away its funds from the defaulter. In this case, the player from Germany got his bearings in the situation correctly and noticed in time that all the money invested in gambling had been transferred to a gambling establishment that was carrying out its activities illegally.
The lawsuit was also rejected by the court for the fact that by withdrawing the fee for processing a registered deposit at a gambling establishment, the bank violated German law, since the event (transaction) was designated by a special category code 7995 Merchant Category Code related to the field of online gambling. According to experts, the majority of German banks working with operators that illegally offer their services in providing gamblers with access to gambling have been under the special attention of regulatory authorities for a long time. Now, although the hero of this story got rid of the payment of a huge debt, the question of his condemnation by the law enforcement officers for active participation in illegal gambling remains open. There is still a known case of a blackjack and slot machine fan who was deprived of a win of 63 thousand euros, plus a sanction in the amount of two thousand one hundred euros, for such activities in 2015.
