Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Based on agreement between gambling operators and The Gambling Regulatory Authority (URHH), Code of Responsible Advertising was adopted and came into force on 1st of January 2023.

Although most gambling ads are created with the intention of targeting adults, young people and vulnerable populations are more and more exposed to aggressive advertising. “Our interest is that gambling represents a safe source of entertainment, and these will be a legally predictable environment for operators and consumers alike. That is why I am pleased that together we have succeeded in adopting a document that defines clear advertising standards, which will help to increase the protection of at-risk groups and youth.” said Director General URHH David Lenčéš.

Slovakia’s Gambling Regulatory Authority prepared the Concept of Responsible Advertising, which became the basis for adoption of the new document.
The aim of the document is to ensure greater protection for minors and vulnerable populations through the compliance of the new self-regulatory mechanisms by operators in gambling advertising.

The new guidelines contain set of advertising gaming standards promoted in the Slovak Republic, to which can be voluntarily subscribe all legal gambling operators can be voluntarily subscribed as well as other stakeholders in the media industry, who promote gambling.

“I hope that these rules will be an important starting point for further discussions on how to responsibly face the gambling challenges. Our common goal should be to promote a strong and modern regulatory framework that will be provide protection for at-risk groups and the youth.“ said David Lenčéš.

Any legal gambling operators or other stakeholders in the media industry promoted gambling may voluntarily subscribe to Code of Responsible Advertising with declaration signed up a statutory representative.

Responsible gambling software experts bring the power of mentor to players of Die-Spielbank.de, the first state-owned operator of virtual slots within Germany

Market-leading compliance software experts Neccton have landed another major partner in Germany, with Sächsische Spielbanken-GmbH & Co. KG. Their online slots product went live in January 2023 under Die-Spielbank.de.

As the first state provider allowed to run virtual slot games with real-money prizes, the operator has attracted a lot of attention; therefore the company has acted wisely when it comes to player protection, adopting Neccton’s mentor software as its RG and AML solution.

Neccton’s success in Germany’s burgeoning online gaming market is both a testament to the company’s background in RG research, and the industry’s forward-thinking approach to player protection.

Neccton’s software was developed as a result of over 15 years of academic research by Dr Michael Auer, company director and head of development. Dr Auer is regarded as one of the world’s leading lights in academic RG research, and mentor is the very fruit of his work. Dr Auer’s research is also commonly cited by regulatory bodies in operator guidelines.

As a result, Die-Spielbank.de players are now protected by mentor’s AI-driven real-time data analysis, which tracks possible problematic gambling behaviour and works to help both players and operators to identify potential issues early. The tool recognises triggers such as a significant increase in deposit frequency, and alerts the operator and directly contacts the player, helping the end user make better-informed decisions.

mentor also includes modules for Fraud, AML and a CRM so Neccton’s customers can solve many issues with a single supplier.

Dr Auer said of the new partnership: “It speaks volumes that so many operators in this new market have opted to work with us for their player protection and more. Working with us means that player issues can be detected early – but also, my research has shown that players who gamble responsibly are more loyal, and their customer lifetime is significantly longer. It truly makes financial sense for operators to protect their players, and that is precisely what we do to everyone’s benefit.”

Kurt Böhm, Head of Online Casino Operations, is very confident about this partnership: “Neccton’s mentor software is well known and proven within the iGaming industry. Therefore we trust the software and are delighted about the partnership with Neccton. We are looking forward working closely with Dr Michael Auer and the whole Neccton team.”
