UK based retail and online betting firm Betfred has announced that it is abandoning the German market, advising players of the move in an email.
Betfred did not give any reason for the departure, but did recommend that players sign up at Mobibet. As of press time Betfred has not elaborated on the pullout.
The email to German punters read: "Please be advised that from Monday 9th June we will be unable to allow deposits or gambling from residents of Germany."
"If you are a resident and have any remaining funds in your account, they will need to be withdrawn within 30 days as access to your account will be unavailable beyond then."
"Please login to your account as soon as possible and withdraw your funds."
"Whilst we are no longer able to hold accounts for residents of your country, you are able to sign up with our partner Mobibet, where you will receive a 100 percent sign up bonus up to 150 euro."
