Cultural evenings with Milan Rabszski are must-visit events for gambling enthusiasts. Milan Rabszski is always sharing his personal experiences with the people of Poland to better their gambling experience. After his tour across the American states and Italy, he is now exposing the locals to the German gambling culture. 

Krystyna, a journalist in the audience, writes about what Milan has to say about his experiences and cultural specifics. 

The Berlin Affair

Germany legalized offline gambling and has more than 50 casinos spread across the nation. Notable examples include the Casino Bad Wiessee on the western shore of Tegernsee Lake, Esplanade-Casino in Hamburg and the Baden-Baden casino. You will usually find them in malls, resorts, and spas in almost every large city. “Berlin, Germany's capital, is one of my favorite cities to visit. The history, the liberty and most of all, their casinos are all very beautiful”, Milan begins. Much like the Polish, Germans enjoy Spiele. Luckily, traditional casinos are permitted in the country and are run by the government. “Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Sounds like home?” chucked Milan. 

Germany, too, follows strict rules regarding local licenses, responsible gambling activities, and safe data protection policies. Although their gambling laws may vary by a whisker in certain states, they remain consistent regarding the age of entry, proof of identity, and also follow strict smoking laws. “But so far, the vibe feels familiar," Milan exclaims, "let's talk about the contrasts!"

Is Online Gambling Just as Restricted in Germany?

"Internet gambling is prohibited under the latest law," Milan affirms. Except:

traditional lotteries;

horse racing;

sports betting;

virtual slot machines;

internet poker;

online casino games.

According to the law of 2021, virtual slot machine games, as well as internet poker and online casino games, are lawful. Real-world slot machines are the inspiration for virtual ones. Limits include a €1 maximum bet and a five-second minimum spin time. In virtual slot machine games, jackpots (i.e., gains that cannot be saved for future games) and autoplay are not allowed. Because of this, players are prohibited from using video poker machines, and only very small bets may be made. With just four tables and virtual banker games accessible at any one time, online casino gaming offers a limited selection. These rules have a monopoly on the games of roulette, blackjack, and baccarat.

"This is why internet gaming is a little difficult in Germany," Milan acknowledges. People, on the other hand, always find a way to be joyful. "Poles are a fantastic example of this!"

What Are the Quirks of German Gambling?

The German gambling industry is governed by the state, which has a constant hold on its activities. “However, I found German gamblers more emotional with their decisions. They notice patterns in numbers, shapes, and cards to find their way to victory,” says Milan. 

“But don't take my word for it; some Polish gamblers have joined me in my German gambling efforts. Let’s hear it from them!”

A gambling enthusiast speaks up in support of Milan, “That is true, the players are very impulsive, and I also noticed that the casinos are more aware of addiction issues. The management checks up on the players to ensure they don’t go home bankrupt,” says Ana. 

“One would assume, based on stereotypes, that Germans don’t walk around being a ray of sunshine, but you’d be falling for the stereotypes. German players in a casino are some of the most animated gamblers I’ve seen. The person next to me hugged me for winning 150 Euros! That's something I don't see in Poland," Mark explains.

“A definite quirk of German casinos is that they provide a welcoming atmosphere. Considering that people come from far-flung places to play, casinos don’t have a strict dress code. You may find this after certain hours in the evening, but other than that, you can find gamblers in shorts and with rugged hair like they were at home!” mentions surprised Luiz. 

“Finally, in terms of online gambling, since the laws have only recently been amended in favor of entertainment, German online casinos still have a long way to go in terms of software development. That means that they can explore in which direction they want to scale up. Soon they too will have everything available, including live casinos”, says Milan. 

German casinos aren’t only about aesthetics, and there is much we can learn from their progress. 

Did You Notice a Big Difference between the Crowds?

“People who gamble have more in common with each other, even if they’re from different countries,” Milan says with a slight smile. “It's like rooting for a football team, but without the restrictions of national borders.”

Gamblers are pretty much the same everywhere. The purpose of going to a casino is to have fun, and it is this intention at heart that unites everyone under the banner of a gambler. Whether Polish or German, this has no bearing on the desire to have fun. 

Final Words

Peeling away Milan from a curious and enthusiastic crowd is a herculean task. However, after a few more audience stories, Milan breaks away from the crowd and allows them to mingle. 

“There is a lot we can learn from the Kasyno Online Niemcy; as long as the Polish market is consistently growing and improving, every cultural exchange is a gold mine of lessons,” he says. Milan Rabszski is editor-in-chief for his passion project, TopKasynoOnline. This is a Poles for Poles enterprise located in Z?ota 59, 00-120 Warsaw. You can also phone him at +48 22 595 14 00 or email
