AnonyMind has announced the appointment of Andy Atha as its new chief operating operator following a 600% increase in registrations for its online treatment – for Q4 2021 compared with Q3.

Andy brings his gaming industry experience to AnonyMind, complementing his knowledge and healthcare technology insights from his most recent role as operations director at leading digital healthcare provider, Push Doctor.

AnonyMind provides flexible and confidential online treatment for people suffering from gambling problems. It offers direct online access to self-help support and a team of professional therapists, alongside clinic-based treatment through its parent company, Leon House Private Clinic.

Andy Atha said: “I’m excited to get started, I genuinely believe in what this ‘Tech for Good’ award-winner is doing. There is a huge need for easy access to effective treatment giving people the skills and support they need to cope with their issues while providing insight to gambling operators to devise and enhance their robust Responsible Gaming strategies.

“AnonyMind have built their processes and capacity and they have now reached a point where I have a real opportunity as the new COO to help increase awareness and funding for its innovative and potentially life-saving problem gambling treatment. I’m leading from the front and can’t wait to meet a long list of existing and new gambling and healthcare industry contacts to discuss their pain points and our ability to solve them with our treatment solutions.”

Co-founder Andy Iddon added: “Andy will make a perfect captain for our ship, he has an outstanding combination of gambling industry experience and operational leadership in health tech for AnonyMind. His insight will help us achieve our mission of supporting as many people as possible in overcoming gambling addiction and poor mental health, especially when the NHS is under so much pressure.

“Our clinicians, clients we treat, and peers we work with appreciate that compulsive gamblers face barriers in accessing traditional walk-in and residential treatment, from stigma and GP referrals to waiting lists and the cost and time of attending face-to-face centres. With our client-first model of online treatment, we’re proving those barriers can be removed.”

Gamebox Global Launch by Froyo Games: Where Skill Meets Rewards

Gamebox Global Launch by Froyo Games: Where Skill Meets Rewards
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Froyo Games has officially launched its flagship Web3 gaming arcade, Gamebox, which allows players to participate in competitive mini-games and win exciting prizes, such as the Moca NFTs by Mocaverse.

Built on Froyo Games’ multichain GameFi platform, Gamebox is designed to provide an accessible ecosystem for both game developers and users. The platform is powered by the $FROYO token, based on the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain networks and listed on several major exchanges, including PancakeSwap, ApeSwap, BKEX, BTSE, and CoinW.

Gamebox operates similarly to a funfair, where players use an in-game currency called Gems to pay for each game. Each game costs one Gem, and players can win Tickets based on their performance in each game. These Tickets can be used to win NFTs, cryptocurrencies, and other exciting rewards.

A key feature that sets Gamebox apart from other gaming platforms is its unique approach to prize winning. Rather than selecting a game, players choose the prize they want to win and compete against others across a rotation of different games. With each rotation, players can strive to achieve the highest scores to rank on the leaderboard. The top players on the leaderboard of each game will be awarded Tickets to enter a raffle for the prize.

The raffle will be triggered once Tickets are awarded up to a certain threshold. When the threshold has been reached, the prize draw will take place automatically, with players who have more Tickets in the contest having a greater chance of winning.

By combining skill-based gameplay with the excitement of prize draws, Gamebox offers a unique and engaging Web3 gaming experience for players of all levels. With a wide range of prizes available, there is something for everyone to compete for on the platform.

Froyo Games has secured major investments from top industry players, including Animoca Brands, Spartan, WeMade, and GBV Capital. With the launch of Gamebox, Froyo Games aims to provide a fun and rewarding Web3 gaming experience for players worldwide.

PAGCOR heeds call to help families affected by oil spill in Mindoro town

PAGCOR heeds call to help families affected by oil spill in Mindoro town
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

THE Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) heeded the call to help the families and individuals who are gravely affected by the massive oil spill in the waters of Oriental Mindoro by joining a relief-giving mission on March 28, 2023.

The state-run gaming agency distributed 6,000 food and non-food packs to 3,000 recipients in the town of Pola. Most locals in said town only rely on fishing as their source of livelihood. Pola was reported as the most affected among the 14 municipalities of the province after oil slicks from the sunken M/T Princess reached their shorelines and continue to deprive them of their livelihood and food supply.

Princess Go, President of the organizer of the mission, NextGen Foundation Philippines, Inc. (NGFPI), said they requested aid from various sources to help the distressed families of Pola as soon as reports came out that the town is suffering heavily from the effects of the oil spill. PAGCOR was one of the agencies that they approached for relief assistance.

“We really needed all the help we can get to provide relief to those who were affected by this unfortunate incident. Thankfully, PAGCOR agreed to partner with us to make this humanitarian event happen,” she stated.

Pola Municipal Mayor Jennifer Cruz led the distribution of the relief items to the beneficiaries at the town’s public market. She was joined in the activity by key PAGCOR officers headed by VP for Corporate Social Responsibility Group Ramon Stephen Villaflor and Asst. VP for Community Relations and Services Eric Balcos and representatives from NextGen and Oceanus Conservation.

Fifty-year-old Annabel Fabula, village chief of distant Barangay Buhay na Tubig, related that life had been extremely difficult for her constituents since fishing is temporarily banned in the areas devastated by the oil spill. With no other alternative source of livelihood, the residents of the community have been relying mostly on aid from the local government and various organizations for more than three weeks now to get by with their daily needs. The remote village, which can only be accessed through a 40-minute boat ride from the town proper, has a total population of over 1,000.
