In the lead up to the Fourth Treaty, Germany launched a Tolerance Policy where operators could


adjust their business to the new market regulations and basically not be prosecuted for offering online casino and poker games before July 2021. So a transitional period, which began on October 15,


enables operators to offer such products (online slots and poker) outside of the regulated market so they


can continue to operate, provided they comply with the provisions of the gambling law.


l


Players cannot log in via multiple platforms to prevent the maximum amount being exceeded.


l


Advertising only permitted in some federal states with clear guidelines and limitations to prevent advertising targeted at minors. Tere will be a ban on broadcast marketing between 6am and 9pm.


l


Individual player accounts have to be verified and this will be the sole responsibility of each provider.


l


Virtual slot machines spins will last for a minimum of five seconds and maximum stake for each is capped at €1 per game.


l


Operators must implement a reality check every 60 minutes with a mandatory five minute trial period before players can resume play.


l


A panic button should be displayed at all times allowing players to self exclude themselves from an online casino when needed.


l Demo games should not be offered. l


Sports betting will allow for outcome of game plus events during the match, so live betting is included.


l


Certain forms of online gambling legalised. Live betting is restricted.


l


Number of licences for online gambling is unlimited. However the number of licences for online casino games is limited. Tose without licences will be prosecuted.


l


A joint gaming authority of the federal states is to be created in Halle, Saxony-Anhalt.


Te idea behind the law is to tighten up the protection of gamblers, who had no legal recourse under the previous law for online gambling.


It was requested for several reasons. Operators of gaming arcades complained about the unfair competition due to inequality between state casinos and amusement arcades, whilst the German Lotto Association criticised the excessive regulation for the lotteries and therefore disadvantage compared to other types of gambling.


Sports betting and online gaming providers took legal action over restrictive measures via the European Court of Justice. Te European Court of Justice suggested improvement measures.


Although there was some success during the previous law (payment prevention), it proved too difficult to stop the range of games on the internet so the idea was to transfer online


gambling to a licensing procedure with strict rules to protect gamblers.


Tere is a plan to set up: l


l


A central, cross game and cross provider blocking system.


A mandatory establishment of provider related gaming accounts with corresponding identification requirement.


l


Obligation of providers to set up systems for early detection of gambling addiction.


l


And limitation of deposits via a cross provider deposit limit (controlled with a central limit).


l


Measures against unauthorised offers are expanded.


In the lead up to the Fourth Treaty, Germany launched a Tolerance Policy where operators could adjust their business to the new market regulations and basically not be prosecuted for offering online casino and poker games before July 2021.


So a transitional period, which began on October 15, enables operators to offer such products (online slots and poker) outside of the regulated market so they can continue to operate, provided they comply with the provisions of the gambling law (see list above).


So for example table games are still banned and in terms of online slots – these are subject to a €1 per spin stake cap, with multiplay functionality removed and five second intervals between spins.


SPORTS BETTING LICENCES


In October 2020 the first nationwide sports betting permits were issued which opened up the market to legal online sports betting.


Prior to this sports betting was permitted under the State Treaty of 2012 however licensing never took place as the procedure was halted due to the limitation of 20 licences which was incompatible with EU law.
