‘Microgaming has announced its support for Germanys Proposed Online Gambling Regulations. Furthermore affirming its commitment to providing its customers with a solution designed to prepare them for the new regime.
Germany intends to implement an online slots licensing regime for commercial operators. Introducing a raft of new measures designed to promote social responsibility. In addition to minimizing gambling related harm. A stance the gaming software supplier fully supports. New directives include a five-second interval between reel spins. Secondly monthly deposit caps. And finally a maximum stake limit. All online gaming products must be presented in the German language.
These are some strict rules which we believe will make playing slots boring. 5 seconds between spins is a long time for slots players. Rules like this make people flock to illegal offshore online gambling sites.
Germanys New Rules
Germany's new rules will officially come into effect in July 2021. After which the relevant licenses can be issued. In the meantime, there will be a policy of transitional tolerance. Whereby operators can engage with the German market provided they adopt the new regulatory measures. Furthermore those that ignore the new regulations may be excluded from the future official licensing procedure.
Microgaming will launch a solution by 15 October that conforms with the German Toleration Regime. Moreover allowing clients to be technically ready to enter the German market at the flick of a switch. This will help with Germanys Proposed Online Gambling Regulations should they be strict.
More than 150 games will be made available to Microgaming customers in the market. Including top titles Book of Oz by Triple Edge Studios. In addition to 9 Masks of Fire by Gameburger Studios. And finally Bonanza by Big Time Gaming.
Leon Thomas, Commercial Director at Microgaming, comments. “As a socially responsible business, Microgaming broadly supports the regulatory changes in Germany. Where we will be providing our customers with a solution that includes some of our most popular and successful titles. Long before the new gambling laws coming into force next year.”
