The new German gambling regulation (the State Treaty on Gambling 2021) will bring substantial changes to the German gambling regulation. There will be new licensing options for online poker, virtual slots and online casino and table games. The current licensing options for sports betting and lotteries will be extended.
The German states have adopted a transitional regime that allows for a transition from unlicensed to licensed sports betting, virtual slots and online poker operations under the State Treaty on Gambling 2021.
As a result, sports betting, virtual slots and poker will be factually tolerated without a German licence.
