Latest German gambling treaty approved at state level

Sixteen German states have approved the nation’s new federal gambling treaty.

The legislation could lead to an expansion of the country’s sports-betting market.

The State Treaty on Gambling is set to come into effect next January and will lift the cap on the number of sports betting licenses available in German.

The treaty also sets out plans for stricter enforcement against unauthorised operators. Online casino gambling activities might also become in German if the treaty is passed.

All of which said, the European Commission announced earlier this month that the treaty’s “not a viable solution” to issues highlighted in the failed 2012 treaty.

The treaty still requires ratification from each German state, and lawmakers in Schleswig-Holstein, a long-time supporter of online gambling, have said that the treaty is unlikely to be approved.
