Both players and casino operators favor the State of Schleswig-Holstein casino license. Several European countries have implemented various online gambling laws during the last decade. The majority of the legislation has been aimed at regulating casinos either at the federal or state level. The dominant structure of Germany's state lottery sector was preserved under the new Schleswig-Holstein model. It did, however, remove the ban on online casinos.
Control Unsafe, Fraudulent Gambling-
According to Schleswig-Holstein, the country already had a thriving casino industry. Many players were using illegal means to access authorized casinos. Therefore, the market was vulnerable to abuse and fraudulent behavior because it was governed by tight federal legislation. The state aimed to smooth this by having authorized providers available to players.
Local and European providers can apply for the license. While this regulatory authority will grant national licenses, Schleswig-Holstein has stated that states will be able to design their own online casino regulations. If approved, operators will not be able to provide both casino and sports gambling within the same domain, except if they have their own separate section, and cross-selling would be forbidden. For foreign operators, they needed an office, headquarters, or business premises in the European Union or the European Economic Area to get a permit.
