Hamburg, 06 September 2022. ZEAL's compliance team has been nominated in the category "Compliance Team of the Year" at the Global Regulatory Awards 2022. This is the sixth time the event has been organized by VIXIO GamblingCompliance, the leading provider of regulatory information for the gaming and payments industry. The awards ceremony will take place in London on November 30, 2022.

ZEAL has achieved key corporate milestones
The nomination follows numerous significant compliance developments at ZEAL. For example, the company received three consecutive permissions to broker state lotteries and was thus able to expand its market leadership as a provider of online lotteries. Furthermore, ZEAL was one of the first companies in Germany to register with LUGAS, the central regulatory database. ZEAL is also continuously modernizing the protection of players and their identities through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. For example, ZEAL cooperates with the Danish company Mindway AI to identify gamblers potentially at risk of gambling addiction using artificial intelligence (AI). Through a cooperation with the Hamburg-based startup Nect, ZEAL also uses AI-based technology to automate identification processes and further modernize youth protection. In addition, with the support of its compliance team, ZEAL obtained the license to launch not one but two social lotteries: freiheit+ and the Deutsche Traumhauslotterie.

Compliance as a driving force for success
"We are very pleased to be nominated as 'Compliance Team of the Year' and honored that, with this decision, the jury recognizes the remarkable development ZEAL has undergone in the field of compliance over the past years," says Jan Kretschmer, Senior Manager Public Policy, ZEAL. "Our compliance team has been and will continue to be the driving force in establishing ZEAL as a trustworthy, reliable and, most importantly, compliant partner with various regulators and authorities, and will continue to ensure that ZEAL always meets all requirements in the market. We are proud of our colleagues and are looking forward to the award ceremony in November."
