Battle of Slots


edict egaming came about around 1998 and started off as a software provider for online casinos. A company that has really built a name for itself in the online gambling industry in Germany. It has also become very renowned for being a specialist where it comes to the development of B2B online casino solutions. 

edict provides pioneering and tenable solutions for the igaming industry. Their mission is solely to come up with tailor made products specifically suited for their customers’ requirements. 

edict is part of the Gauselmann Group, one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers of land-based slot machines; a full subsidiary of Merkur Interactive GmbH. edict benefits well from the Group’s 50 years of experience.

Players in online casinos simply love slot machines from Merkur and they are very well known. edict casino games are just unique in terms of accuracy, player experience and graphics.

Where it comes to product development, edict is simply a global leader. Like us, all of their customers expect nothing less than uncompromising quality with unequivocal love for detail.

They use extremely innovative technology that is ‘made in Germany’ and whoever works with them will be sure to offer the ultimate gaming experience with guaranteed maximum transparency, fairness and security to all of their players.


Up until 2008 when there were changes made to the German Interstate Treaty on Gambling, edict was the only official licensed and legal provider of online casino solutions in Germany. Up until this time however, they had already developed and supplied the technical support in land based casinos in Wiesbaden and Hamburg, for anything related to online casino systems.  

edict has literally developed an entirely new online casino system for the international B2B gambling market. Something that was even more important in the way the company developed and positioned itself in the market for their online casino products was when they acquired the Isle of man online gambling license which we will speak a bit more about further on. 

This provider specialises in the online gambling market and are now the exclusive provider of the well-known Merkur slot machine games from the Gauselmann Group for licensed and regulated online markets around the world.

In 2011 edict egaming GmbH managed to acquire a full Isle of Man licence for online casino systems. With such a license, this would enable any of their customers to get their hands on a sub-licence as an operator on the Isle of Man.

In 2013, this license was extended to an Isle of Man network licence allowing them to offer their games in other jurisdictions as well.

In addition, they also adapted the existing online casino platform in conformity with the German market requirements, basically to be in line with the Schleswig-Holstein gambling legislation. 

Since then, edict egaming has always fulfilled all of the applicable requirements of the legislation.

Since 2015 edict egaming GmbH is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. edict always adjust their casino products to the requirements of other licensing regimes using their own licensing strategy. 

Certified Reliability

Something that helps this provider stand out from the crowd is the fact that all of the games that can be found in their portfolio have been extensively tested and officially certified by independent testing institutes. 

All of the game rules, mechanics and prize distribution comply with the strictest regulations, therefore providing optimal reliability when playing the games.

Games from the jurisdictions in which casinos they provide for operate are only considered for live operation after successful testing and are only licensed after further testing.

This also applies to the platform of edict that complies with the applicable licence requirements and undergoes regular security tests. They also authorise testing institutes to perform security checks on their platform for potential security loopholes. This way casinos can rely on the well-tested and independently-certified security of their games.
