More German Online Sports Betting Licenses

Bwin, Betfair, Digibet and Ladbrokes join MyBet, but Tipico, BetVictor and bet365 lose out

The Hesse Ministry of the Interior and Sport, which is responsible for issuing the twenty online sports betting licenses in Germany, has added more names to the MyBet award announced yesterday (see previous InfoPowa reports), adding Bwin, Betfair, Digibet and Ladbrokes, along with other local operators, to the authorised list.

Two years on from the implementation of Germany's State Treaty on Gaming (see previous InfoPowa reports), the full complement of 20 licenses has now been issued, surprisingly with the ommission of major operators like Tipico, BetVictor and bet365.

Other German operators awarded licenses include:

Admiral Sportwetten

Albers Wettbörsen Deutschland

Bernd Hobiger

Bet90

Bet-at-home

Cash Point

German Sportwetten

IBA Entertainment

Intermedia

ODDSET Germany Sportwetten

Oddsline Entertainment

Personal Exchange International

Primebet International

RULEO Alpine Country

Racebets International Gaming

Star Sportwetten

This long-running story may have a way to go yet; several industry observers have predicted that companies whose applications were rejected – some of which had previously been accepted by the maverick Schleswig-Holstein licensing regime – will almost certainly be considering legal action.
