Innovative mini-games functionality now included within licence

Leading online gaming software developer EvenBet Gaming has been granted an extension to its existing supplier licence by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), which will allow the company to offer its gaming platform alongside the core poker offering.

The platform provider, which secured its MGA licence earlier this year, has now been approved by the Maltese regulator to offer Type 1 Gaming services. MGA-licensed operators will now have access to the company’s gaming platform, which complements its poker solution and is proven to boost player retention and increase life-time value.

EvenBet’s innovative mini-games feature is covered by this new licence extension, providing operators with the opportunity to offer players a variety of mini casino games without needing to leave the poker table.

The side games functionality includes hundreds of games from a wide range of third-party content developers, enabling players to enjoy an immersive casino experience straight from the poker room.

EvenBet also has a full gaming platform available as a standalone option for operators looking to enhance their online casino offering.

Dmitry Starostenkov, EvenBet Gaming CEO, said: “Our business has grown exponentially this year following increased demand for our services and launching the EvenBet poker platform with several new clients.

“Securing this new MGA licence extension is an important move that allows licensed operators to gain access to our full product portfolio, including our casino games platform.

“Our casino and mini games functionality was built with player retention in mind, providing the ultimate tool that keeps poker players engaged in one place and gives them access to quality and complementary content.”

EvenBet has launched more than 100 poker rooms over the past 10 years, offering 33 different game types to approximately five million active players. The company continues to place a responsive and reliable poker solution at the heart of its progressive omnichannel portfolio.

EGBA Urges Germany to Reconsider Online Casino Tax Proposal

EGBA Urges Germany to Reconsider Online Casino Tax Proposal
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has warned that the proposal by the German Bundesrat to introduce a 5.3% tax on online poker and slots stakes would undermine the key aim of the country’s new online gambling regulations to direct online poker and slots customers into a regulated market.

EGBA suggests that the tax measure would impinge upon the competitiveness of the regulated market and would lead to 49% of German players switching to unregulated websites, based on a new player survey published by Goldmedia. EGBA, therefore, urged members of the German parliament to reconsider the proposal.

EGBA added that the proposal is punitive, and would result in online poker and slots being taxed at rates higher than their retail equivalent land-based casinos, which would constitute an illegal state aid under EU law. The Goldmedia survey suggests that the tax advantage for land-based operators would be as high as €290m (£250m) a year in the state of Bavaria alone.

EGBA Secretary-general Maarten Haijer said: “We welcome the regulation of the German online gambling market, and we fully appreciate that an online gambling tax will need to be paid.

“However, we urge the German parliament to reconsider the proposed punitive rate of the tax because it will push German players to use unprotected and unregulated black-market websites and give land-based operators a massive tax advantage.

“We stand ready to share our experiences in other jurisdictions of the EU, and firmly believe that a tax level can be established which strikes the right balance between meeting the needs of the German consumer while ensuring sufficient tax revenue for the state.”
