Off to Germany next week and called Betfair customer service to check whether the Exchange was allowed.

Was informed the Exchange is definitely a no in Germany and any customer found using the Exchange in a banned country would have their accounts closed.

Lucky I checked with Betfair as I could have easily went to Germany and phoned the London office to place a bet on the Exchange without any problems. This would be an unintentional breaking of the law in Germany committing a criminal offence.

About time Betfair provided a proper service to customers with a published list of those countries where the Exchange is available ensuring that it is promptly updated with changes.

so is germany the only country that has a law in place where it is illegal to access a non registered bookie?

as far as im aware these companies may face restricitions but there are very few countries who have actually made laws making it a criminal offence to access such sites.

some countries have other things which you may get done on other things like avoiding tax....
but as far as im aware germany must be the only one which has a law on individuals????

try this.

if your not sure your account will get banned use a bookie you dont want to use again.

get a vpn.
log in from a "banned destination".
then log in from your normal ip address..

you will see they have taken the correct steps.

if you have an address from a abanned country your account will be closed.
if you try to use a bank card from a banned country you wont be allowed to.

all bookmakers who dont have agreements in countries who insist on them cant do **** all if bokies and exchanges follow this.

so if you use a vpn abroad how the hell is that country goign to find out?

are betfair and co realy goign to shoot themselves in the foot.
if an indvidual gets "found out" betfair and co wont get done.

tbh most countries wont give a sh1t.
most wont even give a sh1t unless you have tax to pay....then you may have a big problem lol

What's happening with Singapore?  I see on another thread a law's been passed banning online gambling starting next year?  Bet365 (and others) already closing accounts.
