This makes them the eleventh and twelfth operators licensed to offer online slots games to German customers.

The operators join other recent licensees such as Tipico and Rootz.

Novomatic already had a licence to operate in Germany under its Novoline brand. The country’s first licensee, meanwhile, was Mernov, which was a joint venture between Merkur and Novomatic, though it has since changed to a new ownership structure.

Interwetten will operate under two domains, Interwetten.de and Lasmegas.de. Admiral – which is part of Novomatic – will operate under Slots.admiralbet.de.

Both operators are already licensed for sports betting.

The online slots market in Germany was introduced as part of the Fourth State Treaty on Gambling – the GlüNeuRStv – in July 2021.
