Online Gambling News from Germany

10 August 2011 by admin

The big names that have been in the online gambling news of late have been Italy, Greece, Full Tilt and a few states in the US. So while we are all up to date with those countries, we here at have realized that we have not heard from Germany in awhile. Time to check in.

Last we heard about Germany was that their treaty for gambling was coming due at the end of this year. The German states have to come together to find an agreement on how best to manage an online gambling expansion and their state-run monopoly on online gambling.

Well the latest German State Treaty on Gaming has not met with approval from the European Union, who say that the new draft is “incompatible with European law.” So now Germany has extended its standstill period for online casinos and online gambling operations. At present Germany is waiting to hear the opinions of the European Commission, the UK and Malta. Seeking the opinion of the EC is understood given the lack of agreement between what the Germans want and what the EU says is law. As for seeking the opinions of the UK and Malta, the UK is one of the strongest operating markets in Europe and Malta is one of the top online casino licensing bodies in the industry.

But the Germans definitely are not opposed to online gambling. Recently one of the German football clubs, Türkiyemspor Berlin, made a sponsorship deal with leading online casino operator Betfair. As a part of the sponsorship deal, the Betfair logo will appear on the front of the club players’ jerseys. This sponsorship is to be for the forthcoming football season and will last for a year; after a year there is an option for renewal, which would be discussed at that time.
