There is plenty of news surrounding the German-speaking region when it comes to online gambling, however, it is mostly shut down when things get interesting.

On the gambling industry’s media outlets, the business is booming in Germany, with Scientific Games bringing next-generation Lottery Technology to Germany’s Lotto Brandenburg, Kambi Group powering the re-launch of Mybet sportsbook, or GeWeTe adding charm to Merkur Casino Halle.

However, when it comes to regulations, the recent news was both hot and cold.

On March 21, the Minister-Presidents of Germany’s 16 federal states have ratified the third amended State Treaty on Gambling, paving the way for operators to apply for sports betting licenses in the market, while Schleswig-Holstein will be allowed to run its own, liberal regulatory regime.

During the Minister-Presidents’ Conference, the lawmakers agreed to sign the Treaty, with licenses to come into force from January 1, 2020 and run until June 30, 2021. This will effectively act as a placeholder, with a view to a complete overhaul of Germany’s gambling regulations by 2021.

As mentioned earlier, the news was considered by some as a “breakthrough”, while others have been disappointed by the “missed opportunity”.

You can read more about the statements and quotes by industry experts from the region on the following link.

During the second edition of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, also known as the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Summit and Awards, Dr. Joerg Hofmann (Partner at MELCHERS LAW) will take on the role of moderating the D-A-CH region oriented panel discussion and will add his opinion to the Germany market update along with Martin Arendts (Owner at ARENDTS ANWÄLTE – gaminglaw.de).

The “Gambling industry updates from the D-A-CH region” compliance panel discussion will focus on shedding light on the status of the gambling industry in the German-speaking markets such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland and also an exclusive update on Liechtenstein.

MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit will take place on the 9th of May at Radisson Blu Royal Astorija Hotel and is gathering the gambling industry from the Baltic and Scandinavian regions for a full day of quality learning and networking with like-minded peers, regulators and representatives of the industry media.

MGM has ended the talks with Wynn Resort to buy the Encore Boston Harbor Casino. The nearly finished property and Wynn Resorts as a whole were roped in a scandal of massive proportions that stemmed from multiple sexual misconduct allegations leveled against the casino operator’s ex-boss and founder Steve Wynn.

MGM said in a statement that they “have noted the anxiety raised by various stakeholders regarding a transaction” and that they think “the best course of action is to discontinue discussions” concerning the opportunity to buy Encore Boston Harbor. The statement further read that the company wishes to have “a positive impact on communities in which we operate.”

Wynn Resorts said in a statement that it has agreed to cease discussions with MGM “after careful consideration.” The company added that it is committed to opening and running the 671-room hotel and casino resort located along the Mystic River in Everett.
