Gambling Law

What is Criminal Gambling Law

Gambling, like lotteries, online-casinos or sports betting are becoming increasingly popular in Germany. The requirements for permissible gambling are essentially regulated by the State Treaty on Gambling in Germany (Staatsvertrag zum Glücksspiel in Deutschland – GlüStV) and the Race Betting and Lotteries Act (Rennwett- und Lotteriegesetz – RennwLottG).

Criminal Gambling Law accompanies these requirements by imposing penalties not only for offering and brokering illegal gambling, but also for advertising it. Even the player may be criminally liable for participation in illegal gambling.

Our attorneys have extensive practical experience due to many years of counselling national and international sports betting providers and agents. We therefore offer both the in-depth knowledge of Criminal and Criminal Procedural Law, as well as familiarity with the complex requirements of Gambling Law, which are necessary for your successful defence and preventive advice in Criminal Gambling Law.
