Novomatic backs away from online gambling in Germany

novomatic slots no longer available for germany
Access denied! German online players can no longer play Novomatic slots

The giant European gambling company Novomatic has taken the decision to remove all of its online casino games from Germany after regulators reminded them of their licensing arrangements in the country.

Through its online subsidiary Greentube, Novomatic was allowing a limited number of online casinos such as Viks, Casumo and Quasar Gaming to offer slots such as Book of Ra Deluxe, Lord of The Ocean and Lucky Lady’s Charm Deluxe to German online players. However, in a rather hasty about turn, the company has decided to prohibit access to these games for Germans.

The move by Novomatic is highly frustrating for German gamblers, who can now only access Novomatic slots in bricks and mortar casinos throughout the country. Germany is one of the most lucrative markets for Novomatic, where their games have always been extremely popular.

Online casinos such as Casumo warned their affiliate partners that Novomatic games were going to be inaccessible to German players by 29th December 2017. Casumo had only been granted permission to offer the games less than a week ago.

This latest online gambling crackdown by German authorities follows similar efforts to prevent Merkur casino games being available online in the country. Merkur quickly restricted access to German residents to comply with their licensing agreement.
