Greentube-owned StarGames obtains German licence

Greentube, the NOVOMATIC Digital Gaming and Entertainment division, has successfully obtained a German nationwide licence to offer online slots via its brand StarGames.


This means the website, as well as all of Greentube’s processes on Responsible Gaming, anti-money laundering (AML), IT security and game mechanics, has been acknowledged by the Gambling Authority of the Federal States of Germany (GGL) as compliant with the Interstate Treaty 2021, and the operator has been recognised as a safe and secure place for German players to enjoy the best Novomatic and Greentube games.

Georg Gubo, COO of Greentube, said: “Receiving this licence is further testament to the quality and reliability of not just the StarGames brand, but also Greentube as a whole. Being granted the German licence is a major milestone for Greentube and we are extremely proud that the regulatory authorities deemed our application successful.

“Our goal was to create a product of the highest quality, one that customers would not only enjoy playing but also feel safeguarded by while doing so. With, we feel we have a brand and a website that goes above and beyond to ensure we offer players the best place for safe and secure entertainment in Germany.”

StarGames, known in the online gaming industry as the first brand to offer the original Book of Ra™ to online players in Germany, has been live across the country since the Interstate Treaty 2021 came into force on July 1, 2021.

This licence now offers a number of possibilities for Greentube in the country.

Laszlo Pados, Brand Manager of StarGames, said: “Receiving the nationwide German licence is a testament to – and proof of – all the hard work that everyone at Greentube has put into the project over the last two and a half years. This also opens up a wide range of opportunities for, mainly in the field of mobile apps, but also in marketing and advertising within the boundaries of the Interstate Treaty 2021. We cannot wait to get started on this exciting next chapter.”
