GeoComply launched its Conscious Gaming tool to complement Pennsylvania's PlayPause self-exclusion solution that currently operates in Keystone State and develops corporate social responsibility to protect consumers.
The conscious game by GeoComply complements PlayPause
Pennsylvania goes a step further in responsible gambling thanks the program consumer protection Conscious Gaming GeoComply, which, in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB), increases the protection of players in the state of Keystone.
Thanks to this initiative, regulators and operators are now able to quickly identify at-risk consumers who may be trying to gamble, even though they were previously excluded.
The solution is integrated with PlayPause in Pennsylvania, which should enable companies to operate more safely and reliably collect information about vulnerable consumers.
Commenting on the progress made so far, the head of PGCB for Compulsive and Problem Gambling, Elizabeth Lanza, said the integration of the GeoComply consumer protection tool allows not only state, but also nationwide, monitoring of consumers who are at risk of becoming addicted to gambling.
Lanza confirmed that the regulator is interested in working with stakeholders across the country to provide better and more reliable service. With Conscious Gaming, GeoComply hopes to help companies develop corporate social responsibility and protect consumers nationwide.
GeoComply is now a tool to track whether consumers have access to gambling products within a whitelisted jurisdiction and from their national boundaries.
This was the subject of heated debate prior to the adoption of sports betting in many countries, and lawmakers doubted whether state restrictions could be applied fairly and whether consumers would jump over states to play elsewhere.
Commenting on the solution, Anna Sainsbury from the president of Conscious Gaming and GeoComply said the organization was excited to introduce a self-exclusion tool that works nationally and could complement the already promising PlayPause solution being launched at Keystone State.
