Casino operator Videoslots.com is the first in the UK to launch a new responsible gaming bar. This feature is designed to help customers manage their time on the site more effectively and safely.
Launched in time for UK Safer Gambling Week (19-25 November 2020), this bar will become visible to players once they have logged into their account. It will also be visible when playing games.
It has an 18+ reminder badge, a session timer to help track how long someone has been playing, and links to various authorities. These include Videoslots’ own responsible gambling page, the self-exclusion program GamStop, and the UK Gambling Commission.
This new responsible gaming bar is the latest amongst the tools that Videoslots use to promote responsible play onsite. Players can also use wagering limits, time alerts, and temporary time-outs amongst other tools.
Amina Norgosanow, Videoslots’ head of responsible gaming, said: “The responsible gaming bar will make sure our players are always aware of the time they spend on the Videoslots site.
“It gives them easy and direct access to information and assistance, like responsible gaming tools and self-exclusion, and will help them stay in control from the start to the finish of their customer journey.”
This new measure is a fantastic addition to responsible gambling protocols, and we shall hopefully see something similar rolled out across other casinos in the future. With UK Safer Gambling Week about to launch, it is important that operators and affiliates alike think about how they can best promote responsible gambling.
