General's Gambling State Treaty

As old as the Gambling Even are probably the attempts, it under state control. Over the centuries, the relationship of the state on the subject of gambling always made changes. From permission private gambling to state control to the complete ban, all possibilities have already been tried that the spectrum gave.

In Germany, the so-called one was ten years ago Gambling State Treaty and following the gambling change agreement adopted, with which the state wanted legal framework conditions for providers of gambling in Germany. However, reality is not satisfactory for state, player or provider of gambling. While the regulations, the first not go far enough and the latter are too restrictive, the player stuffs in the dark in between.

What is the gambling agency contract and what are his goals?

On the 1. January 2008, the first Gambling State Treaty (Gullv) in Germany entered into force. The aim of the Treaty was the creation of uniform framework conditions for the event of gambling in the Federal Republic. The Gambling State Treaty should the illegal game of gambling combats the problem of money laundering, as well as gambling addiction contained and youth protection are guaranteed. To achieve these goals, gambling was placed under state monopoly. Online gambling and advertising for gambling were prohibited, sporty bets were allowed to be made only at the state provider ODDSet.

Four years later, the Gambling State Treaty ran out and has been replaced a little later by the first chance of chance of chance (Glürtv), the Except for Schleswig-Holstein all federal states ratified. This stepped on 1. In force and allowed for a commercial gambling, if the provider had previously obtained a state concession and also loosened the rules for playshots with exceptions and tolerations. In the field of sports bets, twenty licenses were distributed to private providers, Online casinos remained prohibited.

Schleswig-Holstein did not join the contract, but adopted its own "Law on the reorganization of gambling" and also distributed licenses for Online casinos and sports betting provider on the Internet. In the meantime, Schleswig-Holstein has also joined the regulations of the gambling change agreement.

A second amendment of the gambling change agreement should originally be made in 2018, the number of concessions for sports betting providers and one Step by gradual liberalization of gambling in Germany. Due to the political changes in the country parliaments, the second gambling change agreement, which must be appropriated by all 16 federal states, has not yet been ratified.

Which games fall under the Gambling State Treaty?

Fall under the Gambling State Treaty All games where real money can be played, Whether on- or offline. More specifically, the Gambling State Treaty includes regulations for operators of gambling halls, (online) casinos, Internet lotteries as well as provider of sports betting and online poker games.

The Gambling State Treaty and the Online Casinos

The Gambling State Treaty and also the first chance of chance of chance of championship was limited to the regulation of offers of lotto games and sports betting as well as classic gambling halls. Online casinos just did not receive any US license. Thus, the operation of online casinos in Germany was banned on a blow. Only with the special route of Schleswig-Holstein it was even possible for US casino providers to obtain a concession and thus offer legally gambling. Since the northernmost US federal state has now joined the contract, providers of casino games must now hope for the revision of the gambling change agreement, as long as the issued licenses of the federal state still validity.

The Gambling State Treaty and European Law

Since the entry into force, the Gambling State Treaty and the Changing State Treaty have been exposed to great criticism. This is expressed not only by lobby associations and gambling operators, The European Court of Justice has also criticized the US regulation again and again and explained in judgments as incompatible with European law.

In 2010, in a judgment, the state monopoly of the sports betting was evaluated as a violation of European subject requirements, as the intensive advertising for State providers was not compatible with the superordinate objective of youth protection and addiction prevention. Also confirmed in several judgments of the special route Schleswig-Holstein and the concession restriction criticized on twenty providers. Thus, in the past, it has been stated again and again that the Federal Government must demonstrate that the measures taken increased youth protection, contributed to addiction prevention and reduced crime.

Since 2018, however, the EU Commission has retired legally, the triggered procedures and complaints against the gambling sector have been discontinued.

What does that mean for the players?

Although US players theoretically continue to be punishable if they participate in gambling, which is not licensed by the Ministry of the Interior Schleswig-Holstein. In practice, players are not persecuted on the one hand and on the other hand are casino operators with an EU license as well as players in these casinos protected by EU law, Since the EU is allowed with the distribution of licenses distribution and advertising within the member states. Thus in Germany, even if state law is towards that. A classic gray zone. As long as you put as a player on casinos with EU license, you have nothing to fear from the authorities. Generally, these online casinos are recommended anyway, as the award of an EU license Malta or Gibraltars is also linked to certain points, ensuring fairness, ordinary management and thus in total consumer protection.
