Zeal launches portfolio of games in Germany

| By Zak Thomas-Akoo
Slot developer Zeal announced that it has launched its portfolio of games in Germany through its B2C subsidiary.

German consumers can now find Zeal’s games through the online portal of the provider’s B2C subsidiary Lotto24 and its sister brand Tipp24. The German gambling regulator, The Joint Gaming Authority of the Federal States (GGL), granted the business the licence in April.

The slot developer added that it has already made its portfolio of games available to third party operators “for some time now”, including Lotto Hessen and Park Avenue Gaming.

Zeal said that it intends to expand its range of games to up to 200 titles by the end of 2023.

“The German licence enables us to create entirely new gaming experiences. Our determined investments in this business are now paying off,” said Zeal CEO Helmut Becker.

“Zeal’s clear focus remains online lottery brokerage. With online games, however, we now have another product area that should quickly gain weight.”

Zeal focus on player protection

The company also argued that it was a “pioneer” in the area of player protection and addiction prevention.

“We are aware of the risk for players of addiction. That’s why our clear claim is: we want to offer the highest standard of legal and safe gambling and nothing else; whether in lotteries or online games,” said Zeal Instant Games managing director Julian Tietz.

“That’s why we go beyond regulatory requirements in online games and work with innovative AI applications, among other things, to maximise security for our players.”

When Zeal first received its German virtual slots licence in April, it said the move represented a “strategic milestone” for the business, as it meant the German online lottery market leader would be involving itself in the country’s igaming space.
