Schleswig Holstein Continues to Award Licenses

Reports have circulated this week that the German state of Schleswig-Holstein has awarded five new online casino operators with licenses to operate in the state. The operators listed include Ladbrokes, 888, Admiral Sportwetten, Admiral Sportwetten and Cashpoint Malta Ltd.
 
The licenses are valid until the summer of 2018.
 
The five additional licenses bring the total to twelve for Schleswig Holstein. The northern state recently relaxed laws and made online casino game playing legal. The issue however, is that since the country’s newly formed coalition took over the government, they are seeking to align the entire country under the Intrastate Gambling Treaty.
 
Earlier this year, Schleswig Holstein took a departure from the Treaty and the other German states by legalizing online casino games playing and awarding casino licenses. The move was controversial and has been scrutinized.

Despite the effort to discount the licenses that already have been awarded, Schleswig Holstein is pressing forward. It has been reported that government officials within Schleswig Holstein ‘s Interior Ministry are currently considering applications from twenty-two other sports betting operators with an additional twenty-two applicants seeking a license to offer online casino and poker.
 
 
 
European Union laws state that each country has the right to determine its own online casino games policy.
