For the nationwide day of action against gambling addiction 2023, the German Sports Betting Association (DSWV), in cooperation with Mindway AI, is providing a self-test on its homepage that gives players the opportunity to have their gambling behaviour analysed.

Rasmus Kjaergaard, CEO of Mindway AI, explains the principle: “Gamalyze analyzes the game behavior under real-world conditions, namely while the player randomly draws cards with which he either wins or loses money. Even if it’s just play money, the personal risk of risky gambling behavior can be determined much better than with classic questionnaires.”

At the end, players receive a score, an assessment of their risk behavior and actionable tips on their gambling behavior: For example, setting a budget, taking a break or using winnings to treat themselves. Based on neuroscientific findings, Gamalyze analyzes how players react to certain stimuli – such as temporary losses or gains.

For millions of people in Germany, gambling is a harmless leisure activity. Sports betting, in particular, has arrived in the middle of society and is an integral part of the sports experience. But gambling also carries risks: a very small proportion of consumers can develop gambling behaviour that is questionable or even problematic. Gambling addiction is a serious issue and the gambling providers licensed in Germany are always breaking new ground in order to detect an imminent problematic gambling behavior among their customers at an early stage and to take preventive action against it.

“The DSWV is always working with its members and partners to make legal gambling more attractive for customers,” says Mathias Dahms, President of the DSWV. “The fun of the game is what unites us all. Player protection is a central component of this. We are pleased that we can improve player protection in Germany together with Mindway AI and now also make a self-test available to players and interested persons on our homepage.”

Innovation in the gambling industry does not only take place in the gambling offerings. Gambling, which is becoming increasingly digital, also offers new and effective tools in the area of player protection. One of the world’s leading companies in this field is the Danish company Mindway AI, a partner of the German Sports Betting Association. In addition to software for the early detection of problematic gambling behavior, it offers Gamalyze, a neuroscience-based self-test of decision-making in gambling. In this way, the personal risk for risky gambling behavior can be identified in a scientifically sound and playful way.

Mathias Dahms is convinced: “Gambling has never been as safe for customers in Germany as it is today in the legal market. The gambling and sports betting industry is a driver of innovation in many digital areas – including gambling addiction prevention.”

Leading German software provider teams up with Hamburg-born aggregator to make full suite of slots available to customers in regulated markets worldwide

With immediate effect, German iGaming-business Apparat Gaming is teaming up with fellow Hamburg-founded company edict egaming. The former, having forged a reputation for providing premium casino content with a German accent, has thus joined forces with one of the country’s top aggregators in edict, one of the Merkur Group’s subsidiaries.

As a result of the deal, Apparat Gaming’s ever-expanding portfolio of 30+ quality slots, including recent releases like the high-octane Autobahn Alarm and the hotly-anticipated Fishin’ the Biggest, will be joining edict’s already widespread line-up of over 200 titles – making them now available to all operators who choose edict for their game aggregation needs.

This collaboration will give customers access to an even more diverse selection of games, all of which are fully compliant with the latest German regulation and certified for release in multiple markets.

Founded in 1998, edict was one of the industry’s pioneering online casino service providers before it was acquired by the Merkur Group a decade later. In 2021, the company added an aggregator solution to its offering, and it has been steadily developing this product ever since to a point where it now supplies content to over 150 operators and starts 8.5+ billion games per year.

Specialising in engaging titles that are supplied by some of Germany’s most popular studios, Apparat Gaming’s releases will certainly look right at home among the aggregator’s prestigious game portfolio – and both parties are already looking forward to a highly successful collaboration.

Martin Frindt, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Apparat Gaming, said: “Given Apparat Gaming’s German roots, we’re delighted to be teaming up with a Hamburg-born business-like edict. Adding our titles to their line-up will give operators access to our over 30 top slots that all come with our signature German accent, and we can’t wait to hear how they’re received by customers.”

Dominic-Daniel Lienard CEO at edict, said: “Since launching our aggregator solution, edict has compiled a stellar portfolio of releases from some of the top developers in Germany and beyond – and adding Apparat Gaming titles will strengthen this roster further. With great graphics, unique themes, and innovative bonus features, we’re sure their slots will be a huge hit with our operators.”
