OPAP Launches Direct Response Programme
OPAP, the Greek National Lottery operating company, has launched a “direct response programme” which will support public health networks and emergency services.
Last week, OPAP announced that it had donated 500,000 surgical masks and other medical supplies to be used directly by the National Health Service of Greece.
The company is working directly with the Ministry of Health of Greece to distribute supplies to vital hospitals battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Working with the government, OPAP has announced that it will help the national assistance line “DoctorAnytime” of the Greek emergency network financially, enabling the affected people to receive direct medical advice on coronavirus and other health issues.
Dimitris Aletraris, chief executive of OPAP for Cyprus, announced that the gambling company has agreed to fund the €1.3 million construction of the treatment unit, which is scheduled to open in the summer of 2020.
“We want to assure all citizens that OPAP is an ally during this crisis time,” he said.
Mindway AI Collaborates With the Hellenic Gaming Commission to Ensure Player Protection
The aim of the cooperation between Mindway AI and the Hellenic Gaming Commission is to enhance player protection in the Greek gambling industry. The two parties seek to elaborate on the risk assessment methodology applied to assess whether a player is about to develop problem gambling behavior.
Mindway AI has signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Hellenic Gaming Commission on issues related to responsible gambling, the protection of players and gambling addiction prevention.
“We are pleased that the Hellenic Gaming Commission has shown us the trust to collaborate with us utilizing our in-depth scientific expertise and potentially our award-winning player protection software built on a unique combination of neuroscience, AI, and human psychologists’ assessments,” the Chief Executive Officer for Mindway AI, Rasmus Kjaergaard, said.
Originally, Mindway AI’s player protection software was developed to be implemented by operators as an early detector of problematic gambling behavior but we have found that it might be used across an entire market as well.
“The idea of using our expertise and maybe our software across a full market gambling jurisdiction in Greece is exciting and innovative. Together with Hellenic Gambling Commission, we intend to co-create the needed adjustments to adapt to the extra requirements that may occur when this new approach can cover a whole market and not solely individual operators,” Kjaergaard said.
Within the framework of their collaboration, the two parties shall evaluate the use of AI software in combination with neuroscientific insights and expert assessments to identify at-risk gambling behavior. The Hellenic Gaming Commission will then seek to take initiatives and proper measures and proceed with interventions, both at the regulatory and supervisory-audit levels, to handle at-risk gambling behavior and minimize the harm related to gambling addiction.
