GMM & Associates (Malta) Limited shall be attending the Onling Gaming in Schleswig-Holstein Confernce on the 16th January.

Conference Background – Until the end of 2011 the gambling market was controlled federally by 16 Lander States which have all adhered to the national banning of online gaming throughout the country. This stance has recently sustained much criticism for its protection of the national governmental monopoly on sports betting and lottery gaming which have excluded operators from the German Market.

The northern most State of Schleswig-Holstein has in the latter part of 2011 taken its first bold step towards the deregulation of the current system¸ adopting its own online gambling legislation that has been approved and praised by the European Commission.
