- Extending the so-called experimental phase for sports betting from 30 June 2019 to 30 June 2021 with the possibility to extend up to 30 June 2024.
- Removing the quota system for sports betting licences to allow issuing more than just 20 licences.
- Entry into force on 1 January 2020 if all participating German states ratify the treaty until 31 December 2019.
