Virtual slots licensing at a standstill in Germany


Despite many applications, no virtual slots or online poker have yet been approved by the State Administrative Office of Sachsen-Anhalt.

Under present regulations, all license applications are subject to a final approval by a two thirds majority of the Glücksspielkollegium, a body consisting of representatives of Germany’s sixteen federal states. The current holdup in the processing of virtual slots and online poker licenses appears to be mainly due to ongoing disagreements in this body.

Germany’s new national gambling regulator, the Gemeinsame Glücksspielbehörde der Länder (GGL), will take full control of the licensing process from 1-1-2023.
