Germany publishes online gambling regulations

Germany will implement new online gambling regulations in July 2021. The regulations will allow licenced gambling companies to run online slot machines and sports betting. Slot machines will have a maximum stake of €1 per spin and a minimum spin time of 5 seconds. Sports ‘bets at stake’ will be limited to final score and next scorer only. Between September 2020 and the introduction of the new regulations, online roulette and blackjack will be banned, and the maximum losses per player from online betting will be limited to €1,000.
