Renewal of online casino licences in Schleswig-Holstein

The governing coalition of Schleswig-Holstein has signed a draft law that is intended to renew the online casino licences that have recently expired.

This draft law is one step further than the draft of an amendment to the German State Treaty on Gambling that will only allow new sports betting licences but sticks to the ban on online casinos.

The new law of Schleswig-Holstein is expected to be passed in May and the new online casino licences are to be valid until 30 June 2021. For the period after June 2021, it is intended to develop a new regulatory framework which, according to the wishes of Schleswig-Holstein, will also allow issuing online casino licences in the other German states.
