Edict is a successful software company which is at the heart of the online gaming industry. It offers a comprehensive Business to Business (B2B) service as well as being responsible for the design of a large portfolio of entertaining slot and table games. It is quite a venerable company by industry standards, having been founded right at the beginning of the history of online gaming, back in 1998. It is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the massive German gambling and casino conglomerate, the Gauselmann Group.
Site operators can choose services from the above menu as required, or they can opt for the entire portfolio and buy a complete off the shelf “white label” site, or as Edict like to describe it… “the ready to use turnkey solution”. A very popular option for site operators is to choose the “Game Solution”. This enables an existing operator to integrate the entire range of Edict’s licenced Merkur titles into their current range of games, thus increasing the selection of games available to their players at a cost effective rate.
Indeed, it is the game design and promotion activities of the company that most casino players are more interested in. Edict are the worldwide exclusive distributors of the German games designer Merkur’s online slot machine games (hence the Merkur Gaming link). There are around forty slots in the range, covering many of the currently popular genres. The main specialism seems to be old fruity favourites, with a large proportion of games featuring old school one armed bandit fruit machine style titles. These include games like Double Triple Chance, Super 7 Reels, Summertime, Fruitinator and Fancy Fruits. Inevitably, other popular genres are also well covered such as the Egyptian themed Eye of Horus and the sorcery infused Magic Mirror.
All the major casino table games are also covered, with some excellent varieties of Baccarat, Blackjack, Poker and Roulette all provided to casino operators and players alike. More unusual formats are also available in the Merkur range as well, such as Sic Bo and Craps.
Games are created using HTML5, so this company’s output is compatible with play on any kind of device. Edict’s parent company Gauselmann Group holds a full gaming and network licence with the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission. This means that its games and licenced sites are fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. Its games and sites are therefore regarded as safe to play for United Kingdom based players.
