Playscan in partnership with National Council on Problem Gambling North America

Playscan and National Council on Problem Gambling US has entered into a partnership agreement to ensure that players will receive North American specific responsible gambling information directly within the Playscan system.

As gaming operators in the US move forward with launching their online gaming channels, it is vitally important to ensure that the player population is fully informed about the risks associated with gambling.
The partnership with the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) ensures that all players utilising the Playscan system both online and land-based in the USA will find localised information about problematic gambling. The player will have direct access to National Helpline numbers – when needed the most.

 

About
The National Council on Problem Gambling is the national advocate for programs and services to assist problem gamblers and their families. The mission of the NCPG is to increase public awareness of pathological gambling, ensure the widespread availability of treatment for problem gamblers and their families, and to encourage research and programs for prevention and education.

Playscan now live at Norsk Tipping

The Norwegian national lottery, Norsk Tipping is the first operator to use Playscan on VLT’s as well as on all their old and new online-games. The player can access Playscan through both web and mobile. This takes consumer protection to the next level.

Launching the first VLT module and releasing Playscan in multiple channels, Norsk Tipping is at the forefront of responsible gambling. By using an multichannel personalized electronic ID (their mandatory player’s card), Norsk Tipping is unique in providing player data of all player activities and gives Playscan the perfect foundation to become the hub for all proactive responsible gambling activities.

 

By providing an informed choice early in the gambling experience, Norsk Tipping gets an opportunity to create a sustainable relationship with their customers. With Playscan they are able to provide players with a risk analysis based on their player behavior.

–       Responsible gambling has always been an important issue for Norsk Tipping. We are proud to be the first operator to analyze gaming data via Playscan for our players, says Torbjörn Almlid, CEO of Norsk Tipping.

 

In addition to the implementation of Playscan there has been a focus on the importance of reaching out to the player and the organization regarding how to communicate and understand the effects and knowledge that you can gain from Playscan. Torbjörn Almlid continues:

–       The Playscan team is highly professional, not only regarding the system but has also provided us with great knowledge regarding future communication and education on responsible Gambling.

 

The next step will be to continue the collaboration and expand the strategy to create a more sustainable and responsible gambling environment for the Norwegian players.

–       We are delighted to work with Norsk Tipping, a company that takes responsible gambling extremely seriously. By implementing Playscan and in their vision of the next step for Playscan, they really show their commitment to their player’s wellbeing, says Andreas Holmström, CEO of Playscan AB.

Playscan 4

Playscan 4

Our product has been evaluated, tested and now also – twisted. We are very proud to announce the latest, the next: Playscan 4

 

– Playscan 4 is about communication; with players, with operators, with regulators in all channels. We build on years of experience and player feedback to make our information even more accessible, says Andreas Holmström CEO of Playscan.

 

Playscan has become known for its traffic light analogy when communicating with the players. We changed this into a scale of risk. With a six point scale Playscan is more granular and more precise. This enables the player to understand the gradual changes in their behavior.  Playscan is now better framed to visualize the process of escalating gambling risk.

 

Playscan 4 is also equipped with improved customized (and smarter) recommendations to each player. These are now based on the specific game the player is playing – instead of an overall assessment.

 

Playscan is now a seamless experience across multiple gaming channels and it’s feature proofed for possible mandatory usage. Another new feature on Playscan 4 is the customization. When looking after your players, your brand should be the focus, not ours. We have made it simple for operators to customize Playscan and make it more adaptable to their specific brand and feel on the gambling site.

 

– Playscan 4 is an exciting continuation of the Playscan saga. By learning from all of our installations of Playscan 3 and the 100 million analyses performed in the series, we’ve made the good parts better, clarified what needed clarification and added a couple of extremely promising features, says Henrik Hallberg CTO of Playscan.
