The Deutsche Automatenwirtschaft (DAW), an association of Germany’s gaming machine institutions, has named a list of the most important problems that must be covered since the country’s authorities are going to hold a discussion of the re-regulation of Germany’s gambling market.
According to the DAW, the current regulations are based rather on quantitative criteria and are in violation of the State Treaty on Gambling, especially when it is a matter of attracting players to the legal market.
The DAW claims that establishments should be allowed to provide players with multiple game verticals and that the new regulations should support the state lottery monopoly on draw-based games.
According to the DAW, updated regulations, which will be discussed on October 23, must guarantee that authorized providers can suggest a competitive and economically viable option in order to alienate customers from unlicensed operators.
The changes concerning German’s gambling laws, which will be debated on October 23, will enter into force in June 2021.
As mentioned earlier, the European Commission criticized the third amended State Treaty on Gambling introduced in Germany.
