Greentube, the NOVOMATIC Interactive division, has made its market entry into Poland after taking its content live with Totalizator Sportowy’s brand Total Casino.
The deal means the supplier’s online and mobile versions of iconic titles such as Sizzling Hot™, Book of Ra and Lucky Lady’s Charm™ are now available for the first time to Polish online players through the monopoly casino operator’s Total Casino site. Also set to be integrated with Total Casino are top-performing titles from Greentube Collections, an exclusive portfolio encompassing all the supplier’s most popular games series. This new digital distribution channel perfectly complements NOVOMATIC´s omni-channel strategy with the rollout of its top performing VLTs with Totalizator Sportowy’s retail network. Players will now be able to play their favourite NOVOMATIC titles in retail outlets as well as online.
State-owned Totalizator Sportowy is the only operator legally entitled to offer online casino games in Poland and the Total Casino brand has experienced impressive growth since it launched in 2018.
The entrance into the online market in Poland represents the latest step for Greentube. It follows on from new entries into Denmark and Mexico last year and the supplier’s continued expansion in Europe and Latin America, with Germany and the Netherlands on the horizon in addition to the launch of its new RGS platform later this year.
Michael Bauer, CFO/CGO at Greentube, said: “Totalizator Sportowy’s casino brand is very well-respected by players in Poland, and to be selected as an online partner is further evidence that we are a market-leading force when it comes to iGaming content across a wide range of regulated markets. Greentube has already enjoyed a fruitful start to 2021 and this new market entry and partnership shows our commitment to expanding our reach.”
Maciej Kasprzak, Online Gaming Director at Totalizator Sportowy, added: “We are constantly developing our offer and we want our clients to experience the best entertainment from the best developers. The arrival of Greentube’s content has been greeted by the players with much excitement. We look forward to continuing a successful partnership.”
Mindway AI and the DSWV offer self-testing through AI
For the nationwide day of action against gambling addiction 2023, the German Sports Betting Association (DSWV), in cooperation with Mindway AI, is providing a self-test on its homepage that gives players the opportunity to have their gambling behaviour analysed.
Rasmus Kjaergaard, CEO of Mindway AI, explains the principle: “Gamalyze analyzes the game behavior under real-world conditions, namely while the player randomly draws cards with which he either wins or loses money. Even if it’s just play money, the personal risk of risky gambling behavior can be determined much better than with classic questionnaires.”
At the end, players receive a score, an assessment of their risk behavior and actionable tips on their gambling behavior: For example, setting a budget, taking a break or using winnings to treat themselves. Based on neuroscientific findings, Gamalyze analyzes how players react to certain stimuli – such as temporary losses or gains.
For millions of people in Germany, gambling is a harmless leisure activity. Sports betting, in particular, has arrived in the middle of society and is an integral part of the sports experience. But gambling also carries risks: a very small proportion of consumers can develop gambling behaviour that is questionable or even problematic. Gambling addiction is a serious issue and the gambling providers licensed in Germany are always breaking new ground in order to detect an imminent problematic gambling behavior among their customers at an early stage and to take preventive action against it.
“The DSWV is always working with its members and partners to make legal gambling more attractive for customers,” says Mathias Dahms, President of the DSWV. “The fun of the game is what unites us all. Player protection is a central component of this. We are pleased that we can improve player protection in Germany together with Mindway AI and now also make a self-test available to players and interested persons on our homepage.”
Innovation in the gambling industry does not only take place in the gambling offerings. Gambling, which is becoming increasingly digital, also offers new and effective tools in the area of player protection. One of the world’s leading companies in this field is the Danish company Mindway AI, a partner of the German Sports Betting Association. In addition to software for the early detection of problematic gambling behavior, it offers Gamalyze, a neuroscience-based self-test of decision-making in gambling. In this way, the personal risk for risky gambling behavior can be identified in a scientifically sound and playful way.
Mathias Dahms is convinced: “Gambling has never been as safe for customers in Germany as it is today in the legal market. The gambling and sports betting industry is a driver of innovation in many digital areas – including gambling addiction prevention.”

STS Gains Advertising Rights for UEFA Europa League
STS, the Polish sports betting company that was acquired by Entain in August, will be able to activate advertising rights for the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Europa Conference League in Poland.
The acquisition was announced on 13 June, with a £750m ($946.3m) proposed fee to purchase the sportsbook operator.
As Entain is already partnered with UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Europa Conference League, the rights can subsequently be activated by STS.
These will include localised marketing activities and services that can be used from the first round of matches.
Paweł Rabantek, CMO of STS, said: “STS has for years been the best-known and most recognisable brand among bookmaker companies in Poland.
“The possibility of synergy in marketing activities after the takeover by Entain brings a number of benefits for us, which will allow, among other things, to strengthen this position.
“I am glad that we have been able to implement all the advertising benefits possible for both the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Europa Conference League from the first match day.”
STS is also the largest private entity in the domestic sponsorship market, being the official sponsor of the Polish national football team, Raków Częstochowa, Korona Kielce, GKS Katowice, Jagiellonia Białystok, Zagłębie Lubin, Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biała and Widzew Łódź, as well as the Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle volleyball team.
Rabantek added: “At the same time, I can already announce that the benefits of the partnership will also be perceivable to fans and our customers, including through the opportunity to win tickets through attractive promotional campaigns we plan.”
