Germany’s Schleswig-Holstein Grants 12 Online Poker Licenses
The German state, or Land, of Schleswig-Holstein issued its first online gambling licenses last week, allowing a dozen operators to offer casino games on the internet, including poker.
The licensees include several familiar names as well as some that are not quite as well known: Ladbrokes, 888 Holdings, Betfair, bet365 (through subsidiary REEL Germany Limited), PokerStars (through subsidiary ElectraWorks), bwin.party, Bet-at-home, Mybet, Cashpoint, Online Casino Germany, Tipico, and Skill On Net.
These companies are free to host a bevy of casino games on their sites, which is an important detail considering how it contrasts with the rest of the country.
