EGT has launched its T-Line touch table live roulette multiplayer in Hungary. This is the first time this model is installed in the country.

The product features are impressive: 84ins display, six gaming stations, each with a touchscreen for placing the bets, and a 23ins monitor for the statistical information.

“The T-Line touch table roulettes are known for their ease of use, stand-out design and high-end technologies and have achieved good results in other countries,” said Csaba Pardi, sales manager at Demar Kft, which also cooperates with EGT in Austria, Poland, Sweden and Slovakia. “If the product shows strong local performance, it will most likely be installed in the operator’s second casino as well.”

Casino Win Győr has 850 square meters of game space, and is considered one of the most modern gaming establishments in North-West Hungary.

Previous EGT deliveries, performed again by Demar Kft, have been the 4-level progressive jackpot Cat 4 Cash, the bestselling worldwide P-24/24 Up, the ergonomic P-27/27 St Slim cabinet, the Super Premier model of two 4-inch curved monitors and the multi-games Premier Multi-4, -5, -6 and Red, Green, Orange Collection.

Before the T-Line series touch table the operator has had prior experience with the automated VEGA-R8 roulette with 8 gaming places – a product also known in other casinos in the country.

GVC Airs Black Market Concerns About New Gaming Legislation in Germany

GVC HoldingsGVC Airs Black Market Concerns About New Gaming Legislation in GermanyQ1 Trading and COVID-19 Planning Update
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Gaming industry leader GVC has issued an early warning about the new gambling law in Germany, which is scheduled to be implemented in July 2021. The new legislation would allow the entry of any number of sports betting providers, virtual slot machines and online poker games. The law will also permit a a limited number of online casino game providers too.

This law results from an agreement signed between federal states, which gives the individual states the power to define the limits on their discretion on many aspects such as the design of gambling products and gambling advertisement.

The law advocates many restrictions too, some of which are the following:

  • A ban of live streaming on betting sites.
  • No commercial advertising on radio and internet for virtual slot machines, online poker and casino games between 6am and 9pm.
  • A one-minute delay for customers when they switch between different games on the same internet domain, such as from sports betting to virtual slot machines.
  • A five-minute delay when switching between different gambling sites.
  • A €1 stake limit on virtual slot machines.
  • In-play sports betting limited to the final score and associated markets..

GVC warns that the provisions in the legislation are inadequate to protect the players’ interests.  They might end up achieving a wholly unfulfilling gaming experience for users, the company suggests.

GVC’s main concern is that this legislation will render licensed products less attractive and less competitive than the unlicensed counterparts. This could result in a huge risk where customers will be attracted to the black market.

As per the new law, the 16 German states can prohibit or allow online casino table games, for example, and impose their own restrictions. According to GVC, this will create an unequal playing field that is in contrast with the EU law.

There is, therefore, a huge risk that customers will move to the black market, where there is zero responsibility, zero protection and zero tax being paid.

The new law requires sharing of player’s personal data between operators and authorities so as to prevent parallel play across providers. This could develop as a breach of EU’s data protection fundamental rights.

German States in Discussion Over Possible Transition Period for iGaming
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Several German states are in discussions over a potential transition period that could allow operators to continue offering online casino products until the vertical is legalised from July 2021.

The exact nature of the discussions and whether this would allow operators to provide online casino without any sort of restriction, is as yet unclear, with reports telling that they do not want to pre-empt the talks.

“The federal states are currently coordinating the extent to which enforcement measures against illegal gambling can be effectively implemented in the transition phase,” a spokesperson for the state government of Nordrhein-Westfalen said.

While other states are yet to respond to requests for comment, local media reports that the chancelleries in Bavaria, Hamburg and Berlin are also involved in the discussions.

The discussions are playing out ahead of the implementation of the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag (GlüNeuRStV) from 1 July 2021. This revised regulatory model, which is currently subject to a standstill period as it is considered by the European Commission, expands the online market beyond sports betting for the first time.

From July next year, online casino and poker will be regulated, albeit under strict conditions, such as a €1 per spin cap on slot stakes, and table games licences restricted to the number of land-based casinos in each state.
