DAW Sets Out Wish List for Re-regulation of German Gambling Market

7-13 DAW Sets Out Wish List for Re-regulation of German Gambling MarketReading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Deutsche Automatenwirtschaft (DAW), the umbrella organisation for Germany’s gaming machine associations, has created a wish list for the re-regulation of the country’s gambling market.

DAW explained that the current regulations for commercial gambling undermine the objectives of the State Treaty on Gambling, in particular when it comes to channeling players towards the legal market.

It said establishments should be permitted to offer multiple game verticals, and that updated regulations should maintain the state lottery monopoly on draw-based games.

New regulations must ensure that legal providers can offer a competitive and economically viable alternative to unlicensed operators, the DAW said.

“The amendment of the State Treaty on Gambling is a great opportunity to counteract the undesirable developments – above all the rapid growth of the black market – with a holistic approach. Only a coherent regulation of all forms of gaming, including the use of commercial slot machines based solely on quality standards, and a strengthening of legal providers can curb the black market and effectively protect consumers,” Georg Stecker, chief executive of DAW said.

DAW calls on state lawmakers to introduce uniform standards for responsible gaming training and player protection measures across all sectors. These controls, it says, must be constantly developed and regularly evaluated by professionals to ensure they are fit for purpose.

A nationwide biometric system that would ensure voluntary restrictions on players’ gambling should also be rolled out. It also believes a certification system for all gaming halls and outlets offering slot machines should be implemented, to help consumers distinguish legal from illegal offerings. In addition, the association argues in favour of a qualification system for gaming machine professionals.

Finally, the DAW argues in favour of regulations governing the exterior design of gaming establishments. It says these should ensure there are no inducements to gamble for minors and vulnerable people, while allowing the operator to inform and educate players about the range of games on offer.

9-8 Zitro to Offer Training Session at SAGSE 2019 with Collaboration of the University of PalermoReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Zitro University is going to offer a new edition of its training event at SAGSE 2019 with the collaboration of the University of Palermo, one of the most prestigious universities in Latin America.

“This year we have chosen a different way to collaborate with SAGSE and show the casino operators our commitment with the Latin American region. After the extensive product presentation we made during the Zitro Experience Argentina in April, we believed that, on this occasion, the best way to add value to our customers was by contributing to creating at SAGSE a space for reflection on the future of the industry, which has to take into account the changes in consumer tastes and the abundant entertainment offer that comes hand in hand with new technologies,” Sebastián Salat, CEO of Zitro said.

“The University of Palermo and Zitro are united by the firm conviction that continuous training is an essential tool to face the changes that occur, at a speed every time more vertiginous, in all areas of our lives, and, of course, also in the gaming industry. We thank Zitro for inviting us to its Zitro University, and, above all, for continuing to promote this type of training events, so necessary in such a rapidly changing world,” Patricio O’Gorman, professor at the University of Palermo said.

‘Century Siege: TD Battles’ Going Live

Synergizing ‘Card Battlers’ with Tower Defense, MOBAs, and Mythology!

Goober Games, in collaboration with Stepico, announced that their ambitious PvP title, ​Century Siege ​, will be launching globally on November 20th, 2019, after spending several months in Soft Launch. “With Century Siege we originally set out to follow the road paved by Clash Royale. But we soon realized that this pathwas well-worn and, by listening to our community, we decided that the only way to stand-out was to take risks and differentiate” – ​Benjamin Andre, Project Director and Lead Design ​.

Through this planned progression of tweaks, optimizations, and feature additions, the dust has officially settled; leaving Century Siege with the ability to stand on its own two feet, with a face all its own. ​Yes​, it has the ‘Elixer’ and ‘Card’ (Summon) mechanics that have become genre-staples; but it also has many tricks up its sleeve that add a much deeper level of Strategy.

An Offensive Tower class called ‘ ​Spawners ​’ that create a constant stream of friendly units that travel down the lane to assault the Opponent.

Players also choose a ​‘General’ ​, each with their own Special Abilities, that will lead the troops in battle. With Abraham Lincoln, lay waste to enemies with a barrage of cannonfire. Or, select Ghenghis Khan and assault the opponent’s Crystals with hordes of Mongolian Archers.

Once an Enemy Crystal is destroyed, ​‘Rift Creeps’ ​ of the player’s choosing (Minotaurs, Werewolves, Zombies, etc) will begin to rush that lane in a fashion that ​MOBA ​ fans will be familiar with (they even drop gold!).

These features coalesce into an engaging ‘Tug-of-War’ experience that succeeds in its quest to be different. If that was all that was to be said, it would already be enough to recommend giving Century Siege a shot. But, the personality and the ​World ​ that the game creates through its subtexts of Time Travel, Mythology, and historical figures, place Century Siege in a position to be considered one of the most unique ‘Tower Defense’ games released into the Mobile App Market.

Given that the team already has plans for a Single-Player mode or standalone TD game, it is apparent that there is certainly a lot of room for exploration within the world of Century Siege; and we are excited to see which paths this community will travel down. Take a look for yourself on November 20th, available for free on the Google Play and App Stores.
