Another Delay For Sports Betting Concession In Germany

Initially set for September 4, this year, the German State of Hesse's Ministry of the Interior and Sports sports betting concession was pushed out for the second time to January 21, 2013.

The delay followed the Ministry's several revisions of key documents in the second stage of the tender process related to the minimum requirements for submission as German attorney Martin Aarendts said.

It is also worth mentioning that in a case initiated by the North Rhine-Westphalia lottery agency Judge Joachim Bornkamm, who is presiding over it, reviews the legality of the broad prohibition of internet gambling under the State Treaty on Gaming.

Although the Supreme Court upheld the gambling ban last year, Bornkamm said the legal situation changed when the German State of Schleswig-Holstein passed its own, more liberal gaming law adding that: "This prepares a problem, as the European Court of Justice makes high demands on the member states."
