StarGames is the new partner of the ADAC Truck Grand Prix 2024

The ADAC Truck Grand Prix is a racing event, trucker meeting, music festival, industrial fair and job expo all rolled into one huge spectacle. StarGames recently announced a premium partnership with the major event at the Nürburgring. A special attraction has been planned. What exactly does that mean?


Did the softening of the deposit limit make sense?

Since the new Interstate Treaty on Gambling (GlüStV) came into force, a monthly deposit limit of €1,000 per player applies across all providers in Germany. Since September 2023, this limit can be significantly increased in exceptional cases. But how sensible was the softening of the deposit limit really?


Roulette & Blackjack: Online casino games available in Bavaria

Almost a fortnight ago, the first online casino went live in Germany where players can legally play online casino games such as blackjack or roulette. However, the offer is aimed exclusively at gambling enthusiasts residing in Bavaria. But how attractive is the new offer and when will players from other federal states also be able to access it?


No methodological changes to the 2023 Gambling Survey despite widespread criticism

The Gambling Survey 2023 is here. The message that the survey brings with it appears to be mixed with regard to the declared core objectives of the new State Treaty on Gambling: the number of problem gamblers has not changed significantly since 2021. Immediately after its publication, the current survey was repeatedly criticised due to the unchanged methodology, among other things.


GGL reacts indignantly to criticism of canalisation successes

In recent months, many studies, reports and experts have focused on the extent of illegal gambling in Germany. The information provided by the GGL and the current channelling measures, which in some cases severely restrict players in Germany, have often been criticised. The Authority has recently responded to certain court rulings.


What are the most important features of online casinos?

There are currently 39 companies with a German virtual slot machine licence (as of 26 February 2024). With such a large number of online casinos to choose from, inexperienced casino players are often left wondering what features of the platforms they should be looking out for. In our opinion, an attractive welcome bonus alone is no longer enough to make an online casino worth recommending.


State-run online casino takes stock

Just over a year ago we told you about the opening of the first state-owned online casino. Now the Saxon casino company Spielbanken-GmbH & Co. KG has drawn its first interim conclusions. Those responsible for "" are largely satisfied with the development in the first year. But is the state-owned online casino already in the black or is the project still a loss-making venture?


New MGA boss and the status of the gambling protection shield

The prestigious Malta Gaming Authority has recently appointed a new chairman. Charles Mizzi will take the helm of the licensing authority. One of the issues he will have to deal with is the controversy surrounding Bill 55, the so-called Gaming Protection Shield, which is highly controversial in several EU countries. What is the current status of the law?


Why are players active in online casinos without a licence?

Since the German State Treaty on the New Regulation of Gambling (GlüStV) came into force, only real-money games licensed by the German gambling authorities are permitted. Nevertheless, there is still a significant proportion of players who consciously or unconsciously play in illegal online casinos without a licence from Germany. What are the reasons and justifications for this?


How attractive is the Slot Academy of BingBong?

Slot Academy has been available at the German online casino BingBong for a few weeks now. At first glance, you might think that this is a conventional casino stream. And indeed: so-called "slot lecturers" present live streams on the subject of gambling. However, these are not the kind of streams that gamblers know from Twitch. We took a closer look at the Slot Academy to find out if this is even legal.


Gauselmann Group is now called Merkur Group

The billion euro gaming group Gauselmann has officially changed its name as of 1 January 2024. As the Espelkamp-based company announced in a press release, the company, which was founded in 1957, will now be known as the Merkur Group. But what are the reasons for the name change?
