European Court upholds German online gambling regulations

The European Court of Justice ruled on today that Germany’s strict regulation of online gambling was justified even if the regional state of Schleswig-Holstein had eased the rules for online gambling.

Digibet had taken the case to the European court as they had been blocked from offering online gambling in Germany and believed it to be unconstitutional as one stae allows online gambling so why not all of Germany.

“The 15 remaining states were not required to change their rules just because a single state had pursued a more liberal policy for a limited time,” the European court said in a statement.
