Geolocation and compliance technology provider GeoComply has made a $200,000 donation to nonprofit group Conscious Gaming.
The donation will be used by Conscious Gaming to further develop its PlayPause national self exclusion tool, which has already been adopted by Entain, BetMGM and the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
“The interest and momentum for PlayPause from operators and regulators since the launch has been tremendous,” said Seth Palansky, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility & Communications at Conscious Gaming.
“This donation from GeoComply will help us scale our efforts and help drive the adoption of PlayPause throughout the U.S. iGaming industry in 2021.”
Conscious Gaming intends to use the PlayPause initiative to enhance social responsibility, enable customers to self-exclude across multiple states and allow operators to strengthen responsible gaming programmes using data-driven decision making and insights.
The nonprofit firm was established by Conscious Gaming with the aims of uniting industry stakeholders’ responsible gaming needs and creating a standardised baseline to share self-exclusion data and initiatives nationwide.
Anna Sainsbury, GeoComply Chairman and Co-Founder, commented: “We have been very fortunate at GeoComply to have a front seat to the growth of the iGaming industry across the United States over the past decade.”
“We recognise with this growth comes challenges and GeoComply is proud to commit funding to Conscious Gaming to help the industry fulfill its responsibilities and obligations to responsible gaming and a safe environment for players.”
The firm currently operates in 45 states, providing compliance and geolocation technology to numerous regulated online casino, poker, sports betting, lottery, ADW and DFS operators.
