Milestone for Further Growth: ZEAL Launches Online Games in Germany
German licence for virtual slot games expands business model and revenue base of ZEAL
Continuous expansion to up to 200 games planned by the end of the year
Hamburg, 23 June 2023. ZEAL has now launched their online games in Germany. Via the web shops of its subsidiary LOTTO24 AG (LOTTO24, Tipp24), players can access the new online games. They benefit from ZEAL’s tested quality and proven security standards. The Joint Gaming Authority of the Federal States (GGL) had granted the licence to operate online games in April.
Milestone for strategic corporate development
In entering the new market segment in Germany, ZEAL benefits from its many years of international experience with online games. In addition, the subsidiary “ZEAL Instant Games” has made its portfolio available to third-party providers such as the American full-service lottery provider Park Avenue Gaming and LOTTO Hessen for some time now. ZEAL is planning to expand the range of games step-by-step 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,” says Helmut Becker, CEO of ZEAL. “ZEAL’s clear focus remains online lottery brokerage. With online games, however, we now have another product area that should quickly gain weight.”
ZEAL helps to guide customers into the legal gaming market
ZEAL sees itself as a pioneer in the area of player protection and addiction prevention. With its attractive range of games, ZEAL helps to channel German customers into the legal gaming market. “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,” says Julian Tietz, Managing Director, ZEAL Instant Games. “That’s why we go beyond regulatory requirements in online games and work with innovative AI applications, among other things, to maximize security for our players.”
