Germany adds Jackpot50 to gambling white list
Overseen by newly created German regulator Gemeinsamen Glücksspielbehörde der Länder (GGL), the list includes operators that have been approved to operate in Germany.
Jackpot50’s listing covers the approval for the operator to offer Jackpot50.de, the German-facing website in the country.
Among the other operators on the white list are Bet-at-Home, Bwin, Ladbrokes, Interwetten, Tipico and SkillOnNet, the latter of which has approval to operate a large number of sites.
Also featured on the list is 888, which last month rolled out its Mr Green brand in the country.
The GGL last month also released an analysis of 2022 tax data, that shows that 95% of bets are made with legal providers.
The regulator published the analysis in response to a press release issued by the sports betting trade association Deutsche Sportwettenverband (DSWV). In the statement, the lobbying organisation used its own figures to argue that the regulated market was much reduced in 2022 compared to the previous year, arguing that this was a result of the rise in popularity of unlicensed operators – itself a product of overly punitive regulation.
The regulator said that this conclusion “does not correspond” to its own findings.
