The GGL operates a “whitelist” at https://www.gluecksspiel-behoerde.de/de/erlaubnisfaehigesgluecksspiel/whitelist.

If a gambling provider is not on the whitelist, they are not permitted to provide gambling-related services in Germany. The listed entities are therefore a small subset of those that are prohibited from providing these services in Germany.
