Professor Per Carlbring has been assigned to evaluate Playscan

For more than 5 years Playscan AB has been actively providing Responsible Gambling solutions. Professor of Clinical Psychology at Stockholm University, Per Carlbring, with his extensive expertise within online-based self-help programs, has received funding for an independent evaluation of Playscan™.

–  Playscan is a very interesting tool and we need to evaluate and analyze the true value of Playscan™ as a proactive Responsible Gambling Solution. We need to find out if and in what way it works, says Carlbring.

 

Per Carlbring states that it is vitally important to evaluate the effectiveness of Responsible Gambling solutions to understand the social gains and impact it might have. We need to deepen, Carlbring continues, our knowledge and methods about how to reduce the negative effects of gambling.

 

The Playscan CEO Ann-Sofie Olsson welcomes the evaluation and thinks that we all gain valuable information through new scientific research on how to prevent unhealthy gambling behavior. She says:

 

– We do recognize the importance of an independent evaluation to diagnose the reliability of what we do and understand after our 5 years in this field.

Norsk Tipping launches online games

Norsk Tipping will be launching online games in 2013. As part of the company’s social responsibility, the customers will be offered the Swedish Responsible Gambling system Playscan™ – a solution that strives to create a sustainable and healthy gambling environment for the players.  

 

Norsk Tipping will use Playscan™ on all products, including VLT’s, thus becoming the first gaming company in the world that uses the responsible gambling tool Playscan™ in VLT-machines.

 

–  It’s exciting that Norsk Tipping will use Playscan™ as one of the key solutions in its gaming strategy when they go online. Playscan™ is an excellent solution to educate the online players and create awareness about Responsible Gambling, says Ann-Sofie Olsson, CEO Playscan AB.

 

Playscan™ provides the player an opportunity to control and monitor changes in their gambling habits by using unique targeted communication and in-depth analysis of their actual gambling behaviour. Playscan™ is designed to make players aware of their gambling habits and proactively keep their gambling behaviour healthy.

 

By providing an informed choice early in the gambling experience, the operator also gets an opportunity to create a sustainable relationship with their customers.
