Other games with the possibility of winning permission in the travel industry

Anyone who wants to organize other games with the possibility of winning in the travel industry (e.B games of skill) requires permission from the responsible authority. Permission must be applied for.

A game of skill exists when, according to the game setup and the rules of the game, the player can determine the outcome of the game with a high degree of probability through skill or his own knowledge. In contrast, in gambling, the decision about winning and losing is predominantly determined by chance.

The permission does not generally entitle to the organization of competitions, but always refers only to a specific game. It is tied to the person and to the venue. In the case of partnerships, each managing partner requires their own permission.

The permit may be granted for a limited period of time or subject to conditions if it is necessary for the protection of the general public, the guests, the residents of the company property or the neighbouring properties or in the interest of the protection of minors. Subsequent inclusion, modification and addition of conditions is also permitted.

There are also games with the possibility of winning, for which there is freedom of permission (usually with goods winnings worth a maximum of 60.00 euros).

A permit for gaming equipment with the possibility of winning is required for gambling machines or merchandise gaming equipment.
