Portugal Okays Crash Games

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Last week Portugal's Gaming Regulation and Inspection Service announced that it has okayed the offering of crash games, which are house games that sees players play against the casino and have win multipliers.

The okay of the activity dictates that the multiplier range for games will be between 1x and 100x the wagered amount, and games must have a return to player (RTP) percentage of at least 80%.

The approval will now move to operators, who can ask the gaming regulator for individual approvals on the games.

An example of a popular casino game is DraftKings' Rocket, which sees players placing a wager and seeing a rocket launch. Players need to pull out before the rocket explodes, taking home a cash prize if you pull out before it blows up.

As of press time, we don't know when the games will go live in the country.
