Favorite games of the Americans return to online casinos

After the popular online casino Stargames from the Greentube Malta Ltd. Somewhat goodbye to the American market in 2017 and had left a gap in the range of online casinos, Stargames took a new attempt and returned in October back to the American market in 2018. More precisely on the regulated gaming market in Schleswig-Holstein. The northernmost federal state of USA had legally undertaken a single-handedly with regard to the licenses for online gambling providers such as online casinos or online sports betting providers and, contrary to the general American Gambling State Treaty, distributed official licenses.

Withdrawal from the American online gambling market. The Austrian gambling giant Novomatic, whose headquarters are located in Gumpoldskirchen in Austria, operates in addition to online casinos and sports betting providers, also land-based casinos and rents gambling machines at arcades or cafes or bars. However, the online market is one of the strongest sales areas in the group of companies. The withdrawal of the lucrative American online gambling market in December 2017 was all the more surprising. Novomatic justified the step in a press release as an important step, since the products of the Novomatic Group are to be offered exclusively in regulated and licensed markets. In USA, online gambling was prohibited except in Schleswig-Holstein. According to regulations of the European Union, online gambling offers were also offered by companies based in EU countries within the entire EU. This resulted in an opaque, legal gray area to this day, which is to be informed with the new State Treaty, which will come into force in USA in July 2021. For the American players in the online casinos of Novomatics, however, this step was that the machines such as Book of Ra, Dolphin’s Pearl, Lucky’s Charm or Sizzling Hot were no longer available in USA. As if that weren’t enough, one of the biggest competitors of Novomatics, the Gauselmann Group with its popular Mercury games, had also withdrawn from the market just a short time before. A double blow for the player in USA. The background to the course on the American online gambling market was the so-called “Paradise Papers”, in which the name Gauselmann appeared.

With the new, state agreement decided, the online gambling in USA will now be legalized in the future if the providers apply for an official gambling license. Exactly these License is to be applied for in the near future of Greentube as soon as they are issued by the American state. A licensing process at the Malta Gaming Authority (MAG) is also currently running. Already with the Maltese license, the popular game classics Book of Ra, Lord could often return in online casinos such as Stargames, since a so-called Transitional phase runs. A subsequent American license would finally clear the way to complete legality.
