In one of the most powerful EU countries people do love and respect gambling games. Every major city has at least one casino. Moreover poker is presented in the bulk of the gambling venues. Let’s hear more of German poker.
German history is complicated, contradictory and during some periods dreadful. In the first half of the 20th century the population of Germany was far from entertainment. So was it in the next decades. But casinos have existed in Germany for a long time already – even from the end of the 18th century.
Gaming industry of one of the leading European countries is characterized with draconian taxes – up to 80% – and tight state control. A few years ago a prohibition on work of private gaming companies set on the territory of Germany, but then it was raised under the European Union duress.

The English like nothing better than betting. Great Britain, and England in particular, is the kingdom of scratch cards and lottery tickets, the poker empire and the homeland for the most powerful bookmakers in the world.
About 150 casinos are scattered across the United Kingdom. A significant number of gambling venues are situated in London. Generally speaking, most people do not consider Britain as a single state, as well as the United States or India. That’s why we won’t cover the situation in the whole country; we would rather focus on the most developed and densely populated part of the UK – England.
It all started during World War II. The soldiers became addicted to the game that was similar to the modern bingo. The first casinos were opened in the 1960s, and the very first casino was situated in Wales.

Tired of spam from poker clubs? Poker Discover is offering you a new way of interaction between gamblers and gambling establishments. It is an ideal choice for poker community.
Just leaving a phone number in the poker club an unsuspecting gambler may become a spam-target. All days long a flow of worthless, illiterate and ugly formed messages is rushing into people’s life. But they just like poker and want to find other gamblers.
A gambler has to find a game by himself and sometimes his duty is to prepare the card-table, which means to keep calling to establishments, friends and keep reminding that he is interested in some special poker version, not just anything.
So, we see some one-sided and crooked relations: a person does the duty of the club organizing his leisure time by himself.
