Dazn Bet was formed in April 2022 through Dazn’s partnership with Pragmatic Solutions. The operator was added to the sports betting section of Germany’s white list last month.

The white list was set up after Germany’s Fourth State Treaty on Gambling (GlüNeuRStv) was enacted in July 2021. The GlüNeuRStv also brought about Germany’s regulator, Gemeinsamen Glücksspielbehörde der Länder (GGL).

“Dazn Bet is an offer to Dazn users and people interested in sports betting to immerse themselves in a new kind of sports experience,” said Gabriel Vollmann, Dazn Bet managing director, DACH.

“The close cooperation with the German authorities and the brand partnership with Dazn reflect our commitment to be a safe provider in a regulated market where the player’s enjoyment is at the centre.”

Alongside sports betting services, Dazn Bet will also provide safer gambling materials to players. This will include problem gambling detection technology and self-regulation tools.

Dazn Bet will feature on Dazn’s platform from mid-September.

Pragmatic solutions playing a “vital role”

Pragmatic Solutions is powering the launch with its igaming player account management (PAM) platform.

This is Dazn and Pragmatic Solutions’ third collaborative launch out of Dazn Bet’s four new markets. Dazn Bet has already launched successfully in the UK and Spain.

Ashley Lang, CEO of Pragmatic Solutions added that the company is excited to expand this partnership further.

“We are proud to continue breaking ground in the igaming landscape with such an innovative brand as Dazn Bet,” said Lang. “We are thrilled to be part of Dazn Bet’s remarkable journey and eagerly anticipate further expanding this unparalleled value proposition for players and sports fans.”
