Gaming in Germany: Regulation, Compliance, and Business Opportunities

Friday 14th February 2020

Boasting strong partnerships with the European Gaming and Betting Association; MELCHERS Law Firm; the International Masters of Gaming Law; and VIXIO GamblingCompliance, the upcoming Gaming in Germany Conference will be THE event to learn more about the announced iGaming reforms in what is potentially Europe’s largest gambling market.

The Gaming in Germany Conference takes place March 24-25, 2020 at Frankfurt International Airport. The conference venue is conveniently located for visitors from both Germany and abroad – including Malta and the UK.

A large and booming market

In 2019, German consumers spent approximately €9.3bn on sports betting wagers, a 21% increase compared to the previous year.

“Sports betting has reached the center of society in Germany and has become a popular leisure activity,” President of the Deutscher Sportwettenverband Mathias Dahms recently said.

Reform is coming

The prime ministers of Germany’s sixteen federal states will meet on March 5 to approve the new State Treaty on Gambling Regulation. The updated treaty will regulate both online sports betting and online casino games.

The breakthrough news that the German states have reached an agreement in principle on gambling reform created a veritable buzz at the recent ICE trade show, resulting in a packed meeting on the topic of German gambling regulation.

However, as events are moving fast, much more legal and regulatory clarity is expected by the end of next month – just in time for the Gaming in Germany Conference!

Speakers & topics

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr Jörg Hofmann, Head of the Gaming and Betting Law Practice Group at MELCHERS Law Firm
  • Luka Andric, Managing Director of the Deutscher Sportwettenverband (DSWV)
  • Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of the European Betting and Gaming Association (EGBA)
  • Francesco Rodano, Chief Policy Officer at Playtech and former Head of Remote Gaming at the Italian gambling regulatory authority

The Gaming in Germany Conference will address the following topics:

  • Sports betting regulation
  • Online casino regulation
  • Sports integrity
  • Responsible gaming
  • Marketing and advertising (incl. affiliate marketing)

An IMGL Masterclass will be part of the proceedings.

Join decision makers from international and domestic gambling companies, legal & compliance consultants, tech suppliers, and affiliates to discuss the fresh opportunities a fully regulated German iGaming market has to offer.
