for ban termination catalog’ function will be removed with version 6.0.


It is said that countries such as Denmark and the UK see gambling activity of their players on regulated websites at over 90 per cent. In comparison Germany sees less than two per cent of their players on licensed sites.


Gambling revenue is expected to reach around €3.3bn by 2024 and for Germany to keep the majority of that within its borders is going to be tough.


Jürgen Irsigler, Managing Director of Admiral said: “By legalising online gaming the regulator wants to channel large parts of the existing illegal market into the future legal market. It remains to be seen whether this ambition can be realised in view of the restrictive regulation for legal offerings from July 1 2021. Ultimately it will be the consumers who decide.”


Markus Ettlin, CEO of Merkur Sportwetten, said: “Te channelling rate will largely depend on how attractive the future legal market will be. Due to the content related restrictions of the State Treaty on Gambling, this attractiveness of the legal offer is already slowed down. In connection with the planned gaming tax for virtual slot machines and online poker, the legal market will become even less attractive. In our view it will therefore be difficult to achieve a sufficiently large channelling rate – even with the use of all restrictive measures provided for in the State Treaty against illegal providers.”


Te regulations, although a huge plus in terms of unifying the German states with a treaty to cover online gambling, come with certain restrictive measures.


For instance there is regional inconsistency for table games offered online. Each of the states are free to prohibit table games or impose limitations on play which could create an un- level playing field.


Mr Ettlin added: “We as companies, and the industry associations criticised many of the content related regulations of the State Treaty. In particular, interventions in the gaming process

itself are to be strongly criticised, as these lead to the respective forms of gaming being made unattractive in comparison to the international offer. Tis will have a strong negative impact on channelling into the legal market.


“Namely, these are, for example in the case of sports betting, the limitation of the betting programme and in the case of virtual slot games, the minimum duration of the spin and the maximum stake.


“In addition we have also criticised the creation

of various databases. For example a central database for the prevention of parallel gaming is to be set up at great expense. Tis is a problem that does not exist in practice. It would therefore be dispensable.


“We are also critical of the design of the limit database. Limit systems are basically suitable for reflecting gambling behaviours, but the variant chosen in Germany ignores the available scientific findings on limit systems in gambling. Such systems should not provide for general limits, but rather allow consumers to set them individually.”
