After revealing a multitude of action-packed games for October, the leading software supplier - Microgaming, has recently announced its full support for Germany’s proposed online gaming regulations and affirmed its commitment to providing its customers with a solution designed to prepare them for the new regime.
Microgaming Set to Embrace Germany’s Latest Gaming Regulations
Following a brand-new group of action-packed games to be released this month, Microgaming has officially announced its support for Germany’s latest iGaming legislation. Germany plans to implement an online slots licensing regime for commercial operators, introducing a number of new measures designed to promote social responsibility as well as minimize gambling-related harm – a stance the gaming software supplier fully supports.
By obeying Germany’s latest iGaming legislation, Microgaming affirmed its commitment to providing clients in local markets with a solution for the new regime.
New directives comprise a 5-second interval between reel spins, monthly deposit caps, and a maximum stake limit. Likewise, all online gaming products must be presented in the German language.
New Rules to Come into Effect in July 2021
The new rules will officially come into effect in July 2021, after which the relevant licenses can be issued. Until then, there will be a policy of transitional tolerance, according to which online casinos can engage with the German market provided they accept the new regulatory measures.
It is only after this month that software suppliers can apply for relevant licences and those that disregard the new regulations may be excluded from the future official licensing procedure.
Microgaming announced to launch a solution which will be in accordance with the German Toleration Regime.
Yesterday (15 October), Microgaming announced to launch a solution in accordance with the German Toleration Regime which will allow customers to be technically ready to enter the German market.
Players can count on more than 150 games which will be available across numerous Microgaming casinos. The selection will include some of the most popular releases like Book of Oz (Triple Edge Studios), 9 Masks of Fire (Gameburger Studios) and Bonanza (Big Time Gaming).
Microgaming Broadly Supports the Regulatory Changes in Germany
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.”
