The end of the regulatory limbo.

Gambling KYC in Germany

In January 2020, the German states agreed on an amendment to the State Treaty on Gambling (Glücksspielstaatsvertrag) that comes into effect on July 1, 2021. After a period of uncertainty, each of Germany’s 16 states has agreed to a transition period for online gambling. This transition clarifies existing and new mandates including, and importantly, age verification requirements for online gambling. It will allow operators to offer casino-style gaming and poker as long as such activities are fully compliant with the draft for the new Glücksspielstaatsvertrag. Online gambling operators must meet all licensing requirements. This will include an Age Verification (AV) solution for online operators.
