There was an amendment to the gambling act in certain European Countries which was to drive out foreign firms.

However In the amendment to this act it also included Duolingo along with Betfair, William hill etc that operate casinos.

This must have been a mis-understanding however this means that this morning many duolingers in many places of Europe are now unable to access Duolingo.

Duolingo will now cease to be in Europe until they enact a new law which could take some time.

you can read it here where it all happened http://jackelliot.over-blog.com/2017/04/betfair-forced-to-leave-europe.html
