Status of Ratification
The movement to regulate has been approved and is now being ratified individually across the various German states of Bavaria, Hamburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Berlin in preparation of a transitional version of a long awaited regime for German online casino and sports betting operators offering operators “a transition to the regulations of the GlüStV 2021.”
The proposals provide operators with a deadline of October 15 to comply with the transitional regime.
