Oryx Adds Scope To German Aspiration With StarGames Deal

After announcing a collaboration with the Greentube-owned StarGames, Oryx Gaming has added more scope to its German business aspirations.

Through the contract, StarGames will gain access to Oryx’s exclusive RGS partners’ material, which includes a third-party content portfolio, as well as player interaction tools and data services available through the Oryx Hub. Free spins, tournaments and leaderboards are included in the player resources and have been developed to improve participation and retention.

Oryx reported earlier this year that its igaming platform and RGS slots content have been adapted to completely comply with the new requirements for the transition period, ahead of next year’s official market opening.

Matevz Mazij, Oryx Gaming managing director, said of the agreement: “This deal is a significant step for us as we gear up to take on the German online market once it fully opens next year.

“StarGames has a long experience and a leading position in Germany, which will be an advantage to us as we establish and grow our business in the country.”

Greentube revealed last month that its online gaming entity, StarGames, is planning to enter the German market and will apply for a national licence in the country as new legislation comes into force in July 2021.

StarGames is taking all necessary steps to ensure that its offering complies with the guidelines and legislation adopted to encourage social responsibility and reduce gambling-related damage as part of the preparations for its debut. StarGames is also currently applying to the Malta Gaming Authority for a licence.

StarGames’ brand manager, Laszlo Pados, added: “Oryx has a varied games offering from a growing number of suppliers, whose content has already proven popular with German players.

“We are currently looking for exciting and innovative content providers to complement our portfolio of classic and new Novo Line slot games in order to launch our nationwide operation with top-quality content that fully complies with the German regulations. Oryx can assist us in achieving this goal.”
