The Norwegian state owned lottery Norsk Tipping has now upgraded the responsible gambling tool Playscan into its latest version: Playscan 4.2. And they are making it mandatory for all their players. Not far after, Svenska Spel, the Swedish state owned lottery, made the same decision.
Players want responsible gambling tools that are easy to use and integrated in their overall gambling experience. That was the starting point for both Norsk Tipping and Svenska Spel.
Bjørn Helge Hoffmann, Chief Adviser Responsible Gaming at Norsk Tipping explains:
– By upgrading to Playscan 4 we are focused to make Playscan into a service for all, i.e. making Playscan mandatory to all our players. With this, our players are offered integrated communications in regards to changes in their gambling habits as part of their overall gaming experience.
Zenita Strandänger, CSR Manager at Svenska Spel, says that it is important for Svenska Spel to assist their players into making informed and responsible decisions about their gambling. She says:
– The tool promotes responsible gambling behaviors and it plays an important role in our overall consumer protection strategy. Making Playscan to a service for all players is simply a natural next step for us.
– We are very happy that these two Operators now is communicating with all their players that are showing signs of increased risk. That is great news for players and for our continued efforts in consumer protection, says Andreas Holmström, CEO of Playscan AB.
