Changes to the German gambling regulation

Against the background of disputes, especially on the regulation of sports bets, the Ministers have decided to implement suggestions made by the courts to the new draft. The new German Inter-state Gambling Treaty will – agreement of all federal states provided – come into force with beginning of 2018 and will cancel the absolute number of 20 sports bets licences in favour to a quantitative approach.
