Big month ahead for Schleswig-Holstein

TAGs: Germany, Schleswig-Holstein

flag schleswig holsteinGermany is the one of the great hopes as far as Europe’s public gambling industry firms are concerned and to say the country doesn’t know its arse from its ear is an understatement. The country is one of the most economically strong in the European Union and is a nation that enjoys sport with a punt going hand in hand like in most jurisdictions.

Schleswig-Holstein has been the one state all along that that has been bucking the trend as far as the country’s gambling industry is concerned. The rest of the country has been pursuing a German State Treaty that offers a far lower amount of licences than S-H’s version plus a tax rate that is extremely over exorbitant. A change of government in S-H is the proverbial spanner in the works with all the talk they will choose to join the other 15 states and sign up to the State Treaty.

January is set to be a big month in that regard and as such we thought our readership were the best ones to work out what Schleswig Holstein will do.

This week was another landslide victory with just 19 percent voting that the state should Adopt the German State Treaty.

A whopping 81 percent said that it should Continue with its own rules.

Given the holiday period marks the end of the NFL regular season on a yearly basis we thought we’d try to solve this year’s dilemma.

With almost all the playoff scenarios already concluded most people are eagerly questioning who will get the Associated Press vote as the leagues’s Most Valuable Player (MVP). 2012 has seen a number of standout performers and we’ve chosen the six that we think are closest at the top of the standings entering the final week of the season. Whether it be the record-breaking running of Adrian Peterson, former Super Bowl winning Quarterbacks Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Houston Texans defensive sensation J.J. Watt, it’s quite a class. If you don’t like the sound of any of those we have the option for those sitting on the fence and the answers will be revealed in the New Year.
