Greentube debuts in Germany with OnlineCasino Deutschland AG
Following its debut in Poland earlier this year, Novomatic’s Greentube has made another significant stride with a successful launch in Germany through a partnership with OnlineCasino Deutschland AG.
Celebrating the milestone, Greentube said that its entry into the country’s newly legalized online casino market is an important step for the company, which sees Germany as a vital territory in its expansion strategy.
Greentube is already a well-known name in Germany’s brick-and-mortar establishments, but this is the first time the firm is making its offering available to online players in the country. As such, the supplier is confident that its content will be well received by players who are already familiar with the games.
“We are beyond excited to have finally launched our games portfolio in the newly-regulated and highly-anticipated German market. The country has huge potential and our content has already proven popular with the local audience so we have high hopes for what the future has in store,” said Greentube’s key account manager in Germany, Julia Schagerl.
Schagerl went on to say that the supplier could not have found a better partner than OnlineCasino Deutschland AG to work with in the German online casino market. According to her, the operator is already an established name in the country, and its focus on responsible gaming is well-aligned with Greentube’s values.
OnlineCasino Deutschland AG excited about partnership
Confirming the casino’s partnership with Greentube, OnlineCasino Deutschland AG’s CEO and Founder, Andreas Pfeiffer, said that the developer’s content is a must have for all German operators as the country makes online casino gambling accessible to all its citizens.
The CEO further expressed the casino’s excitement at being the first German operator to incorporate the supplier’s games to its portfolio and offer them to local online players for the first time.
He ended his statement by saying: “It is an exciting time for the gaming industry in Germany and we look forward to working together with Greentube to grow our online brand.”
OnlineCasino Deutschland AG is a highly regarded operator in the German online gambling market, having launched in 2013. However, the brand’s offering was only available in the state of Schleswig-Holstein until the country legalized nationwide internet casino gaming through an Interstate Treaty last year.
The new industry launched on July 1 this year.
A look at the new Germany online casino market
The beginning of July marked a new era for online casino enthusiasts in Germany following the legalization of internet casino gaming and poker. Operating online casino sites or poker rooms before then was illegal in all German states except Schleswig-Holstein.
The journey to the legalization of the industry started in March last year when the country’s federal states approved the new German Interstate Treaty on Gambling of 2021 (ISTG 2021). The Treaty sought to lift the ban on online slot machines and online poker, as well as introduce other significant amendments to the old German internet gambling law.
Since ISTG 2021 came into effect on July 1, players across Germany can now enjoy various online casino games, albeit with some restrictions. These restrictions include a requirement to set a monthly deposit limit not exceeding €1,000 across all platforms, a bet limit of €1 per spin on slots, and a ban on progressive jackpot games.
Also, the new law does not allow playing several games at the same time, or using the autoplay feature when spinning slots.
