Casino gaming platform SkillOnNet has announced that they've partnered with Neccton to develop a safer gaming tool that is launching on all partner brands in order to help protect players from gambling addiction.
The product will launch on Slingo, Lucky Vegas, PlayOJO, AHTI Games, Royal Bet, and SlotsMagic and will work to track player data. This data is then compared to algorithms to detect risk patterns that indicate problem betting. If a player is detected as being at risk, they'll get feedback from the tool to prevent them from continuing risky behavior.
Commenting on the launch SkillOnNet Head of Compliance Andy Andrew said, "Safer Gambling is one of the most important aspects of operating an online casino market and although already very advanced in this area using in-house tools, we are proud to be among the first to adopt and launch innovative technologies.
"This ensures that players who show signs of risk via customer interaction receive the best possible advice and practical help."
Neccton Director Dr Micahel Auer also commented, noting: "Academic research is at the core of our work. Over the last ten years we have published more studies than anybody else in the area of player tracking and responsible gaming.
"We have shown what works and what does not work and are constantly improving our solution based on academic evidence and best practice."
