European Commission proposes gambling monopoly compromise

According to the German magazine "Der Spiegel", the European Commission has offered Germany a compromise allowing it to continue with state monopolies on lotteries and casinos. The article reported that, by allowing sports betting firms to operate in its state jurisdictions, Germany would not face a challenge to the 'existence and continuation of the states’ monopolies on lotteries and other forms of gambling' by the EU.
