321CryptoCasino Strikes Industry First With TrustTracker
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Cryptocurrency operator 321cryptocasino has agreed on an industry-first partnership with TrustTracker™, a new blockchain-based tool designed to help solve the issue of player trust in the casino sector.
321cryptocasino players can now use TrustTracker™ to check that the result of every spin or bet was the same as recorded in their transaction history.

TrustTracker™ uses technology powered by the CasinoCoin blockchain to store the results of every transaction. Once integrated via a simple API, players can then use the TrustTracker™app to enter their bet code, or scan a QR code, and receive a near-instant confirmation that the result on the ledger is legitimate.

As well as being a powerful trust-building tool for casinos at a time when public perceptions of the industry are shaky, the data captured by TrustTracker™ can also be used by operators to build new products, better engage players and even boost acquisition by sharing data on everything from RTP to jackpot frequency.

Tomy Simonian, PM at 321cryptocasino said: “We understand that casino players are increasingly demanding when it comes to issues surrounding transparency and trust. TrustTracker™ allows us to place the legitimacy of our product at the heart of our engagement, acquisition and wider growth strategy.”

Andrew French, MD at TrustTracker™, said: “We have built TrustTracker™ to solve a very real trust issue within the casino industry at the moment. By utilising the CasinoCoin blockchain, we are able to seamlessly prove to players that the games they enjoy are legitimate. We aim to become the standard for accountability and visibility that our industry aspires to.”

Last year, the UK Gambling Commission conducted a survey which showed that just 29 per cent of people agreed with the statement: “Do you agree that gambling is conducted fairly and can be trusted.” This was down from 48 per cent in 2010.

Norway to Consolidate Gambling Laws Under Single Legislative Banner

Norway to Consolidate Gambling Laws Under Single Legislative Banner
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Norwegian Ministry of Culture is going to launch a consultation on unifying the country’s gambling laws into a single piece of legislation. The new bill would bring together the existing Lottery Act, Gambling Act and Totalisator Act under a group of gambling laws that would apply to the entire Norwegian market.

The consultation will run through to September 29, with a range of stakeholders invited to give their opinions on the proposals.

“The purpose of the bill is to improve responsible gaming [standards] and to prevent problems and other negative consequences of gambling,” Minister of Culture and Gender Equality Abid Q. Raja said.

“We still want voluntary and non-profit purposes to benefit from the profits that gambling generate, and the bill facilitates this, but at the same time also demands more efficiencies from Norsk Tipping,” Raja added.

Among the key proposals in the bill are for Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto to retain the exclusive right to offer gambling. Both operators would be subject to strict state control, including the government having a final say on board appointments to each business.

The bill would also have the Ministry of Culture assume responsibility for all elements of the gambling market, including rules governing the horse racing sector, which is currently overseen by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food.

The country’s regulator Lotteritilsynet would also be given more power to ensure that gambling is taking place legally. This would include ordering internet service providers to notify users that when they see marketing from offshore operators, this is both unlicensed and illegal.

Aside from traditional gambling, the consultation will also gather opinions on loot boxes in video games and whether these features should be covered by the new set of laws.
