Conscious Gaming, established by GeoComply, has received a stark $200,000 (£148k) donation from GeoComply to develop their newly updated tool PlayPause.
What is PlayPause?
PlayPause is essentially an all-encompassing gambling tool which takes the responsibility of gambling to the next level. It allows players in the United States to self-exclude themselves from gambling across American states. Another feature of PlayPause is that it makes gambling operators aware of customers who may have restricted themselves in another state. GeoComply’s donation has been and will continue to be very useful for the safety of gambling in America.
Who will use it?
GeoComply’s leading figures imagine that PlayPause will provide a great deal of support and optimise a healthy environment for players to gamble. It is hoped that more leading operators take to PlayPause and use it as their primary source for gambling exclusion. Entain and BetMGM have publicly announced their commitment to using PlayPause as their only regulatory tool for self-exclusion.
The benefits of PlayPause
Conscious Gaming was originally created to ensure that gambling issues and regulations remained a sole responsibility for stakeholders and across state lines. Ultimately, it serves as a model for those within the industry to promote responsible gaming and to ensure the safety of American players.
It is hoped that the donation will drive industry efforts to adopt and share PlayPause as their primary source of self-exclusion. Anna Sainsbury – GeoComply Chairwoman and Co-founder – has suggested that the company “is proud to commit funding to Conscious Gaming to help the industry fulfil its responsibilities and obligations to responsible gaming and a safe environment for players”.
This is a great opportunity for affiliates to invest in a responsible gaming strategy; PlayPause is not one to miss in 2021.
