Policy & regulatory briefing Germany

Webinar - The upcoming opening of Europe's biggest gaming market

German gaming regulation is about to undergo profound changes. On 01 July, the new State Treaty on Gaming (GlüStV 2021) will enter into force. It marks a milestone: For the first time, an unlimited number of nationwide licenses for online slots and online poker can be issued. In addition, forms of gaming which are already licensed will also be confronted with regulatory changes: new instruments like the state-run limit database will require extensive implementation efforts on the operators’ side.

Yet, important questions remain: how will online table games be regulated? When will the licensing procedures for online slots and online poker start, and which stakeholders will be involved in them? How will the Federal States’ new Common Authority on Gaming be structured? And (how) will be enforcement efforts be stepped up from 01 July onwards?
