Changes of the new Interstate Treaty on Gambling in Germany

Important information regarding bets placed from German-registered accounts

From July 1 2012, changes in German law have meant that sports betting providers operating within German jurisdiction have been subject to a 5% statutory tax on turnover.

Up until 5 March 2013, Betway had absorbed this tax within their own costs, but are now, regrettably, unable to continue doing so.

As a result, all bets placed by Customers who are resident in Germany will now be subject to a 5% odds adjustment on their returns.

Stake and potential returns as displayed in the betslip will not be inclusive of 5% odds adjustment.

  • A 5% odds adjustment will be deducted after bet settlement.
  • A 5% odds adjustment will also apply to winning returns on bets placed using the free bet (Winnings only)
  • A 5% odds adjustment will also apply to any bets settled using our Cash Out function.

If a customer attempts to withdraw their returns before the 5% odds adjustment has been taken (without enough left in their account to cover the 5% odds adjustment), withdrawal will be voided.

If a customer places an additional bet before the 5% odds adjustment has been taken (without enough left in their account to cover the 5% odds adjustment), bet will be voided.

In both instances, the customer will receive notification from Betway Support of the action taken.

These terms will come into effect as of Tuesday 5 March 2013 00:01 CET.

Note: Deductions are at Betway’s discretion
