Germany – Hesse awards Gauselmann a sports betting licenceBy Phil - 22 September 2014
The Ministry of Interior and Sport for the State of Hesse has granted a German sports betting concession to Gauselmann Group for its Cashpoint business.
The company detailed the complex selection process saying 35 companies had ultimately qualified and were assessed by point score on 15 main themes which in turn were subdivided into further categories.
The point score, which was applied to each criteria, was then multiplied by a number between 0 (bad) and five (very good) to reach a final mark.
The top 20 companies according to this process, in terms of final points, were then awarded concessions by the Ministry of Interior and Sport of the State of Hesse.
Gauselmann points out that its Cashpoint business completed the selection process as “best in class” so-to-speak.
Chairman Paul Gauselmann said: “We are pleased to have emerged as the company with the best assessment from the review made by the Hesse Ministry of the Interior. With this we have been clearly certified that we are the most reliable, most secure and most capable company amongst the applicants – in all aspects.”
