Greentube, one of the leading suppliers of gaming content in the iGaming industry, is making all necessary preparations to launch its online gaming site StarGames in the German market. Greentube has applied for a nationwide license in the newly regulated market. The new regulations are set to go into effect in July 2021.
Greentube’s StarGames has been present in the German market, more specifically in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein. StarGames is taking all the necessary steps to meet the compliance requirements from the Responsible Gaming guidelines and promote social responsibility and minimize gambling-related harm. The new regulations include a reality-check functionality, five second spin intervals, cooling-off periods, a monthly deposit limit, stake and time limits. The autoplay feature for progressive jackpots has been banned.
Operating in Germany
Representatives from Greentube, which recently upgraded its player protection, say that they are excited about being able to operate in Germany and that they are looking forward to delivering the best products and entertainment to players in Schleswig-Holstein.
“We’re very excited about being able to fully operate in the regulated German market, and for players across the whole of Germany to be able to enjoy the fresh StarGames. We proved before in Schleswig-Holstein that we have the games, the technology, the knowhow and the security to offer players transparent, safe, top-quality gaming. While the new regulations certainly bring with them new challenges, we’re looking forward to once again delivering the best product and entertainment possible,” said Trevor De Giorgio, Managing Director of Greentube Malta.
Greentube is also applying for a license with the Malta Gaming Authority. The provider is also making plans to apply for an online German license as soon as that is possible.
Laszlo Pados, Brand Manager at Greentube, added: “There’s still a long way to go until the German market opens next July, but we’re already working on a lot of exciting features to make sure that the new version of StarGames.de will be a true market leader in the eyes of our customers.”
