New training released this month by iGaming Academy will support German operators to comply with gaming legislation in the areas of responsible gaming and anti-money laundering.
Germany’s new Interstate Treaty on Gambling (ITG) 2021, which came into force on 1st July, has extended the regulation of online gambling activity beyond sports betting to include games of chance.
As stated within the new regulation, licensed operators must encourage players to gamble responsibly and to take preventive measures in line with Responsible Gambling regulation outlined in the ITG Annex.
Gambling companies must also comply with the German anti-money laundering laws and regulations, known as Geldwäschegesetz.
Employers in the gambling industry have a duty to ensure that all staff are aware of their regulatory responsibilities, and that they are effectively prepared to ensure a safe environment for players.
Interactive Training For German Operators
iGaming Academy has launched two online courses to coincide with the introduction of German’s ITG. The new courses, Anti-Money Laundering and Responsible Gambling, support employees to enhance understanding of risks, ensure compliance and maximise operational safety.
The Responsible Gambling course will enhance staff insight into problem gambling. They will learn how to identify problem gamblers, the consequences of problem gambling, how to advise players who gamble regularly and what measures to put in place to prevent problem gambling.
The Anti-Money Laundering (AML) training has been specifically designed to boost and sustain learner engagement throughout the comprehensive course. Staff will be taught the basics of AML and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT), including the offences and penalties. They will come to understand the legislation and how it applies to iGaming companies and appreciate the importance of customer due diligence. Learners will learn to recognise ML/FT red flags and the need to report suspicious activity.
Coming Soon: Dutch Training
iGaming Academy is also working on versions of the AML and Responsible Gaming training for the Dutch market, which will be released soon. The Netherlands gaming market is also set for change this year following the introduction of The Dutch Remote Gambling Act.
