Mr Green which was taken over by William Hill plc at the end of 2018, has this morning informed their affiliate marketing partners that they are closing their German facing online sportsbook operation.
Mr Green which is synonymous with their online casino, which since its establishment in 2007 garnered superlatives and other praise from the player community, which culminated in William Hill deciding to acquire the operation, communicated to their affiliates of their decision earlier today.
In the email, the operator cited changes in Germany regulatory conditions behind the reasoning of their decision. With the closure of their German facing sportsbook taking effect immediately.
Last year the federal gambling treaty was passed in Germany, paving the way for sportsbook licences to be awarded to operators from the 1st January 2020. A pre condition of licence approval, was that operators were not to be involved in an online casino operation that actively recruited German based players.
