GVC New Specialist Set to Improve Means of Player Protection; Releases PlayPause Through BetMGM
GVC Holdings has partnered with Nottingham Trent University Professor of Behavioral Addiction and Psychology, Dr. Mark Griffith, for the enhancement of the company's player protection technology. Dr. Griffiths is tasked with auditing GVC responsible gaming guidelines and processes as well as suggesting what should be improved.
Enhancing Player Protection
Using his 30 years-plus worth of experience in the study of addiction and online behavior, Dr. Griffith's job is to bring advancement to the way players are protected. Dr. Griffith's recommendations will help in creating the Advanced Responsibility & Care (ARC) program.
ARC is aimed at enhancing player protection by analyzing player behavior. The provided data will be protection indicators for Data Scientists of GVC in the creation of models that can easily predict and analyze online casino players.
Mobile casino players will be given a risk rating garnered from play patterns and several other factors. In addition, the players will also be monitored in real-time while several analysis tools will help in improving players' protection.
Dr. Griffith's findings will be useful in developing safer measures and methods of interventions for problem gamblers. For the determination of the necessary improvement, Dr. Griffith will have access to over 160 million players' behaviors. This global database of GVC will be useful in his data collection.

GVC has also released an announcement regarding their new partner, Conscious Gaming. Getting access to PlayPause, the innovative tool to aid responsible gambling, GVC is now the first user of PlayPuase. BetMGM, on the other hand, is the first to enable the integration of the essential tools.
