Gaming in Germany Comes Ever Closer, Just Ahead of Long-Awaited German Regulation

The most important conference in German market history is taking place this month.

The Gaming in Germany conference is nearing, with the anticipation overflowing.

The Event

Gaming in Germany Conference takes place Oct. 19 2020 at the Grand Hyatt Berlin as the first major English-language showcasing the long awaited and soon to be regulated German iGaming market.

The German Market Appeal

At this point, the massive market of Germany is about to become Europe’s largest and most important online gambling market, with H2 Gambling Capital research estimates projecting Germany’s online market to reach €2.7bn in gross win by 2021.

New Treaty

The reason for optimism stems from the well-known agreement that the German federal states have come to in ratifying the revised State Gambling Treaty on July 1, 2021.

Regulation Insights

In the interim, a transitional regime comes into effect October 15 right before Gaming in Germany, giving attendees the perfect opportunity to gain valuable regulation and legal insight from gambling lawyer Jörg Hofmann.

Advertising Restrictions Examination

The Treaty will further introduce restrictions in advertising and marketing, including an affiliate marketing prohibition fixed to revenue-sharing rates, with local experts at Gaming on Germany coming to address the constraints of the new regulations.

Technical Measures Identified

Gaming in Germany will also examine the unique technical measures for protection in the new State Gambling Treaty such as barring players from logging on simultaneously with multiple operators.

Masterclass on Tap

Another huge benefit of Gaming in Germany is the IMGL Masterclass “Lessons from Abroad” from former Director General of innovative Danish regulator Spillemyndigheden Birgitte Sand, which will take real-life lessons to hone the ability of all attendees to adapt to the new market.

Safe In-Person Interaction

Gaming in Germany further represents the chance to reconnect with gaming experts in person, after last week's Gaming in Holland provided the example how iGaming attendees can interact safely in this new era, with the Hyatt’s Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment ensuring that all possible public health precautions are in place.

Unique Conference App

In kind with the new conditions, Gaming in Germany offers a specialised app to facilitate contact and dialogue among speakers and attendees.


With such a significant moment in history for iGaming taking place in concert with this year's event, this is clearly the most important edition of Gaming in Germany with true can't-miss opportunities.
