Projects of the casino operator subject to approval

If you have a Lower Saxony casino license, various projects require prior approval or approval by the competent authority on the basis of the Lower Saxony Casino Act (NSpielbG), the Lower Saxony Gaming Regulations (NSpielO) and the applicable ancillary provisions for licensing (NB). For this, you must submit an application.

Insofar as the ancillary provisions for the licence to operate public casinos in Lower Saxony (NB) result in an obligation to notify or report certain transactions or incidents, these must be reported or reported to the competent authority.

Process flow

  • If the NSpielbG imposes an obligation to submit documents or if you have been specifically requested to do so by the competent authority, you must submit the documents to the casino supervisory authority.

If, in accordance with the ancillary provisions for authorisation, you are obliged to report or report transactions or incidents, you must report them to the competent authority.
