Germany's gambling regulator approved close to 50 gambling licences. Only 25 providers have been added to the official white list of operators licensed in Germany. The GGL took over all gambling regulatory tasks from 1 January 2023. It has also approved almost 600 of the 3,500 individual game permit applications for both online slot games and poker.

The GGL approved close to 50 gambling licences. The regulator is focusing on combating illegal gambling. It plans to set up a special public prosecutor’s office in Halle to handle enforcement against illegal providers. Since July 2021, the G GL has been taking on more responsibility from the federal states. The State Treaty on Gambling established the regulator. Before this, sports betting was allowed outside of Schleswig-Holstein. There is a tax on online slots and poker stakes at 5.3% and a €1 per spin stake limit for online slot licences, which has proved controversial.
