Schleswig-Holstein has decided to initiate a process that will see their gambling industry bill scrapped in favor of the State Treaty. eGR report that three draft bills are proposing to ratify and implement the State Treaty in the Northern state whilst at the same time getting rid of the gambling industry-favored Schleswig Holstein state gambling bill. There will be another two sessions of the state parliament to discuss further the next step to take and it’s likely to be a week or so until we see any movement.
The State Treaty, now likely to be approved by 15 states, carries a 5 percent turnover tax on all sports bets and replaces the monopolies that were previous in place. Online poker and casino are banned under the treaty and it S-H’s likely approval means just one state – Nord Rhein-Westphalia – hasn’t signed it.
