Schleswig-Holstein votes Interstate Treaty down

Germany’s Interstate Gambling Treaty Faces Setback as Schleswig-Holstein Disapprove
Reading Time: < 1 minute

Germany’s Schleswig-Holstein government has voted against the amended German Interstate Treaty that would legalize online gambling.

 

Online gambling is, according to experts, the future of the industry and that’s why most countries are trying to regulate the segment. However, Germany’s attempt to pass an Interstate Treaty has hit a setback after the Schleswig-Holstein authorities voted against the legislation.

The Interstate Treaty dates back to 2012 and prooposes the legalization and regulation of online sports betting services in Germany. However, the new law (which needed to be approved by all 16 German states) got contested by operators as it set a 20 online sports betting licenses cap. According to the European Commision, said cap violated its principles for free distribution of services.

EU’s decision led to an amendment to the Treaty that extended the cap to 40 licenses instead of 20. This change failed to satisfy Schleswig-Holstein politicians as they consider it still violates EU laws, in addition to their concerns over responsible gambling not being addressed in the legislative piece. They also have pointed out that Germany should regulate online gambling options.

As the Schleswig-Holstein voted against the amendment and it needs approval from all 16 states in the country to get implemented, it’s still uncertain what will happen with online gambling in Germany.

The much-awaited sequel of the blockbuster Lara Jones is Cleopatra has been made available by Spearhead Studios, gaming developer within EveryMatrix Group. The new high-volatility title can bring wins up to a massive 17,000x.

Lara Jones is Cleopatra II sets its action inside the tomb of the famous Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra. Fresh from her adventures in the highly successful prequel, Lara Jones is on her way to hunt the treasures buried within the Queen’s tomb.

Lara Jones is Cleopatra II is a high volatility, 5×3 video slot with ten pay lines and brings a Return to Player (RTP) of 96.10%. The base game offers Cleopatra Cascade Spins where all winning symbols stick, and re-spins keep occurring until the wins can no longer be improved. When reaching the free spins feature, where all wilds become sticky, players can choose between the standard or high volatility options.

Kevin Corti, Game Development Director at Spearhead, says: “I am, once again, extremely proud of what our team have achieved with this game. The math model is extremely engaging, the artwork is unquestionably stunning, and the audio captivates players’ attention. The Cleopatra Cascade base feature can be very rewarding for players, and the two volatility options provide them with the opportunity to seek out the bonus feature experience they most desire.”

The game, which was developed using Spearhead Studios’ proprietary game development technology and tools, is optimised for mobile gameplay and is highly responsive across devices. The UI responds fluidly to the device and orientation, and the file size is best-in-class for premium-quality games of this type. It is available in a wide range of currencies and languages and is certified for all major jurisdictions.

Earlier this month, Spearhead Studios announces its newly obtained certification for the Croatian market, bringing the total available markets to 12.
