Online casinos focused on German customers will no longer be able to use the services of Visa or MasterCard, since the German government has released a new wave of restrictive measures aimed at the Igaming sector and payment systems that transfer money in online casinos and back.

Last week, the NDR news agency reported that Visa reported to German banks that they should not handle deposits and removal from online casinos using his cards.

The representative of the financial services giant said that the company recently appealed to its retail bank partners to make sure that only legal, properly licensed transactions were processed using its credit cards. Also recently it became known that German online casino players can not use their MasterCard credit cards for making money and receiving winning with game websites.

NDR noted in his report from previously this week that the problem is not united for all online gambling operators in Germany. For example, the German Tipico operator completely deleted the VISA from his platform, and the GVC Holdings Bwin brand informs its local customers that they can continue to use their VISA cards only for deposits for sports rates. Representatives of the two operators informed local news media that the law on gambling law in Germany, which prohibits online casino style games, is too limited and completely incompatible with EU directives.
