On Oct. 27, 2017, the German Federal Administrative Court (Bundesverwaltungsgericht, FAC) ruled that the prohibition of casino games, lottery scratch tickets and poker games does not infringe on constitutional or EU law, thereby confirming the already existing prohibition on such internet games. The complaint was brought to courts by two online gambling providers located in Malta and Gibraltar seeking legal protection against a prohibition order (Untersagungsverfügung).
