Reading Time: 1 minute

888 Holdings, a Gibralter-based online gaming platform provider, has acknowledged that one of its subsidiaries has lodged a complaint with the German Federal Constitutional Court over a legal case in the country.

The subsidiary in question has been the subject of a ruling on appeal by the German Federal Administrative Court, which upheld an order prohibiting the provision of online gaming services in the state of Baden-Württemberg.

888 said that the subsidiary has consulted with legal counsel and has opted to file a constitutional complaint, saying the ruling “infringes its constitutional rights.”

The subsidiary has said that the German Federal Administrative Court ruling breaches its rights under European Union law, including the freedom to provide services, and “hence should be reversed.”

In a statement, 888 said: “The company will continue to closely monitor the legal and regulatory developments in Germany and their implications on the status and of its offerings in this market.”
