16 federal states in Germany agree to legalize online casino and poker

Germany Flag

16 federal states in Germany have agreed to the legalization of online casinos and poker according to news sources some days ago. B2U assumes the two online products have been prohibited in Germany since 2012 but are now likely to be regulated if the amendment comes into force as planned next year (July 2021). We assume that German legalization of casino and poker will mean stricter rules such as monthly deposit limits in the whole Germany, however, the German state Schleswig-Holstein hasn't confirmed to the provisions of the First Interstate Treaty.
