Online gaming is coming to Germany in a regulated manner, and software giant Microgaming is on-board, stating that they'll participate in the market when it opens up next year.
Regulated online gambling will enter Germany next July, when licenses can begin being issued by the government. Microgaming has stated that they're developing a platform option for free play that will be ready by October 15th, but will also be fully compatible with German law and will allow those free play operators to begin offering real money games with the push of a button once it's legal to do so.
Microgaming has also committed to promote responsible gaming and will include rules like 5 second intervals between spins, a maximum bet limit, and monthly deposit limits at casinos.
Commenting on the matter Microgaming's Leon Thomas said, "As a socially responsible business, Microgaming broadly supports the regulatory changes in Germany, where we will be providing our customers with a solution that includes some of our most popular and successful titles - long before the new gambling laws coming into force next year."
