The German federal states have entrusted the Joint Gaming Authority of the Federal States (Gemeinsame Glücksspielbehörde der Länder – GGL) with the state supervision and control of cross-state gambling services on the Internet. The public law institution is based in Halle (Saale).

The GGL’s central task is to regulate the German online gambling market by reviewing and approving cross-state gambling offerings on the Internet and ensuring that permitted gambling providers comply with the rules designed to protect players from gambling addiction and manipulation.

The authority’s actions focus on ensuring the protection of minors and players and preventing gambling and betting addiction. In doing so, the GGL ensures uniform application and enforcement of the law and enables gambling providers to operate under equal and uniform framework conditions.

It is also the GGL’s task to advise politicians and associations in the event of undesirable developments. To this end, the authority monitors the gambling market very closely and will promote scientific research in connection with gambling. The authority sees itself as a coordinating body for all interest groups (politicians, players, gambling providers, addiction and prevention associations) on issues relating to gambling.
