On ocotber the first all german states decided to apply already some rules of the coming regulation of online gambling even before it comes into affect in Juli 2021.So all companies should introduce a 1k€ deposit limit and a so called panik button from the 15th of october on and from the 15th of december on no games are allowed with more then 1€ buy in and which are not at least lasting 5 seconds. All companies who are not following these rules will not get a licence when the real regulation comes into affect in Juli 2021.

So my questions would be:

Does unibet follow this rules i mean does that have any affect for me as a german resident.or does unibet ignore these cause the regulation contract itself is agains european law in general.

I contacted the unibet support and asked them and they said there will be no changes for german customers at all, so therefore they will not follow the instructions of the german government, but because im a fulltime poker pro nearly playing just on Unibet, to know what's really going on is really important for me so i would like to get a response from someone official here who can approve, what the german support lady said and I obv. also want to inform all the other german fellows who didn't got the news yet cause they were nowhere in the media in germany and who is not following all the poker subforums doesn't even know about these major changes.

would be glad if we could get some info here and maybe even start a discussion about your thoughts on this

PS: for the ones who can read german here is a small article who describes exactly what's going on https://www.faz.net/aktuell/wirtschaft/bundeslaender-beschliessen-neue-zockerregeln-16981683.html

thanks @FreedoM for tagging the responsible ones, the time is running fast and just 9 more days until this changes come into affect.

would be really glad if one of the officials  @Jeppe-Unibet@Stubbe-Unibet@ReCorpH,@Andy-Unibet could finally say something to this topic and approve or not what the support told me.

Can't really confirm anything at this stage. For now, it looks like there'll be few or no changes on our site, but can't say for certain.

thanks, @Stubbe-Unibet for the response.

even if you can't confirm something yet but you think i don't have to fear major changes like other sites implement at the moment for german players, like 1k deposit limit per month or limitation to a max of 4 tables at once?

I really can't say. As soon as we know for sure, we'll communicate it to the players. The table cap might be implemented.

wow that sounds totally different from what your support said.

from no changes to probably big major changes in the gameplay.

its just 8 more days until the unofficial date for implementing the new rules, and it seems no one has a clue whats going on at all.

As I said, no decision was taken yet.

Now it looks very, very likely that the table cap etc. will be implemented as early as next week. Possibly have to limit play to the web client (where 4 tables are possible), until we have the table cap in place in the desktop client.

Why haven't you moved to Austria/UK/Malta etc already? If you actually are a fulltime player, tax issues should be a much more severe problem for you than these upcoming changes?!

Just curious...

the plan was to move to Paraguay at the beginning of the year, flights were already booked for the 26th of march and also accommodation, etc organized. but then came the pandemic and everything got canceled. so I'm basically waiting until commercial flights to South America are possible again and then I'm gone as fast as possible
