Earlier this year, DSWV opened up a partner program for non-operators across the entire sports betting value chain, with the aim of helping the entire German sports betting industry speak with a single voice.

Kerberos specialises in money laundering compliance, providing solutions to the gambling and sports betting industries to ensure operators and other businesses in these markets are running in line with local and regional regulations.

“DSWV and its member companies stand for a reputable sports betting market that always meets compliance requirements,” Kerberos managing director Christian Tsambikakis said. “With our products and services, we provide the right tools. Together we can make the German gaming market even safer and innovate the regulatory framework.”

TrueLayer is a global open banking platform, offering companies secure access to financial data and the ability to offer real-time payments to customers.

“We provide companies in the sports betting market with an intelligent financial technology infrastructure,” TrueLayer’s country managing in Germany Sebastian Tiesler said. “As the leading industry association in Germany, DSWV is the central contact for us and represents the regulated German sports betting market.”

Dimoco is a licensed payment institute with expertise in carrier billing and paying via mobile phone. This system allows merchants to accept payments for digital and non-digital services and goods from customers in the European Economic Area (EEA) and worldwide. 

“The partnership with the DSWV brings our business in Germany another significant step forward,” Dimoco’s director of sales Bettina Sommer said. “With our solution, we can offer sports betting providers real added value by allowing them to benefit from a fast, secure and wide-ranging payment method.”

DSWV president Mathias Dahms added: “All three new partners enjoy an excellent reputation in the industry and deliver real added value to the sports betting industry with their products and services. They fit perfectly into our partner program, and we look forward to cooperation.”

Upon opening its non-operator partner program in January, DSWV welcomed an initial four members including payment provider Aircash, risk and identity services provider Crif, fintech business Okto and data provider Sportradar.
