German Sports Betting Body challenges addiction association DHS's turnover figures
The German Sports Betting Association (DSWV) disputes the accuracy of the turnover figures presented by DHS, highlighting the use of unreliable sources and calling for a correction.
The German Sports Betting Association (DSWV) has accused the country's addiction association, Deutsche Hauptstelle für Suchtfragen (DHS), of providing incorrect turnover figures in its "Yearbook on Addiction 2023."
The DSWV argues that the DHS used unreliable sources, such as affiliate marketing sites, to estimate the size of the sports betting market.
The DSWV criticized the methodology used by Professor Gerhard Meyer, who authored the section, and called for a correction of the figures.
