New reality for the sports betting industry

As a collective force, the DSWV wants to represent the interests of the sports betting industry at various levels. In particular, the focus is on dialogue with politics, which takes place very lively in view of the still young gambling law change through the new state agreement (GlüStV). This has changed the industry in the country and a new era ushered in. There are many different measures that have both regulating and restrictive effects.

Mathias Dahms, DSWV President, therefore strives for a critical but constructive exchange with the political decision-makers and responsible authorities. This is the only way to adapt the gambling regulation in the Federal Republic to the modern and social conditions.

Too strong restrictions.

However, the DSWV sees many of the measures as not proportionate. This is how licensed sports betting providers have to reduce their offer. The new legal framework prohibits so -called “event bets” Almost completely. Before the new GlüstV, it was possible to bet on various live events-such as the next yellow card or the next goal. The legislator sees the form of betting too much impulse incentive and has very limited it. Betting on the increasingly popular e-sports were also drastically regulated.

die Monitoring of the player attitude the DSWV also gets angry. It is not yet clear how the so -called monitoring should work, but there are considerable data protection concerns from many sides.

Protection for players. Monitoring is accompanied by an online demand system that is intended to increase the pressure on the bookmakers and betting portals on the Internet to comply with the legal regulations. Ultimately, the game should be protected more effectively from ruinous behavior.
