Countries restrictions on games providers

6 replies • Last post

Does anyone knows why some slots providers are restricted in certain countries? For ex. i always was able to play Netent slots but year ago casinos started to restrict them to me. Why it so? I have an answer why casinos restricting some of the countries but cant understand why the same is with the games. Also i have noticed just yesterday that bet365 allows me to play Novomatic slots and these slots are restricted to me at all casinos who has original Novomatic slots. And thats not the end. Some of casinos started to restrict Playngo and Nyx slots but in Lithuanian casinos which are strongly regulated by law of Lithuania are allowed to play. I would be happy if someone be able to give me an answers:)

This is a very good question.
I was wondering about it too, especially Netent, Novomatic, Ezugi Live.

It is due to the different companies' interpretation of local laws and the fact that many of them share profits on the games with the casino. So for example if you're playing a Net Entertainment game and local laws say gambling is not allowed and the casino is paying say 50% of the profits to Net Ent then the game provider is more or less indirectly operating a casino themselves.

I can't explain why some casinos would allow you to play games from a certain supplier but others would not though. Companies like Net Ent and Microgaming block you on their servers, not the casinos, so even if the casino wanted to let you play them you couldn't.

Just to remark that what the other guys saying it's also quite the same here.

Probably it depends from the casinos itself if a players from a certain region/country should of being blocked playing to a particular developer games but deliberately or not not all doing that.
At least that what seems logical to me.

I'm not sure CL-Ed NetEnt restricts Canadians, but I have not only been able to play their slots at some casinos, I have been able to cash out my winnings afterward too. I had the same discussion with a rep st Rizk Casino the other day, he was saying the same as you.
I dont understand any of it really lol I just know where I can enjoy Netent games and wager real money while I'm at it .

Be careful. In that case there is a good chance that those Net Ent games you are playing may be pirated. We've seen a lot of casinos recently that run fake games that look just like the real thing, but in fact are running on a server that is under the pirate's control and they have substituted the RNG with their own code. No prizes for guessing what that means.
