White-label and turnkey provider ProgressPlay, recently shortlisted by the prestigious EGR B2B Awards, has announced an investment in their Responsible Gaming Team as well as in new tools to enhance the company’s offering in this key area.

Responsible Gambling is a high priority under ProgressPlay’s senior management team and the company works with protection programs such as ‘GamStop’ that allows for players to permanently or temporarily suspend their accounts. GamStop is the free, UK-wide national self-exclusion scheme that enables gamblers to put blocks in place to restrict their online gambling activities.

On-going work preparing for certification demonstrates that ProgressPlay has identified the risks, assessed the implications and put in place systemised controls that increase reliability and security of systems and information. The company is confident that this will result in improved customer and business partner confidence at the rapidly developing white-label and turnkey provider.

ProgressPlay is informative about responsible gambling across the platform and even encourages players to give up gambling altogether should it become overwhelming to them. What is more, the enhanced Responsible Gaming Team is regularly trained to pick up signs related to problem gambling and knows what steps to take should a player ask for help or guidance, providing advice through a multi-channel approach that covers live voice, email, SMS and, interestingly, invasive customer pop-up notifications. The team also has preventative measures and triggers to intervene, identify and combat possible gambling related traits.

Furthermore, ProgressPlay has close and long-term relations with its suppliers and other partners to ensure high-quality player-protection in the service offering. Supply chain is carefully vetted and this in-depth assessment also includes the countries where there are safeguards on data protection and the protection of player data rights.

ProgressPlay supplies operators and casino brands with a platform and game aggregator together with extensive value-added services. ProgressPlay’s iGaming platform provides operators with a powerful tool for optimising the performance of an online casino, with a bedrock in Responsible Gaming technology and practices.

ProgressPlay is committed to delivering game-changing white label solutions that aim to transform the iGaming landscape in terms of delivery, customer interaction and usability. All the necessary monitoring and management tools are provided, including segmentation tools, advanced reporting, payment and security plus key statistics, customisable loyalty and bonus systems, combined with insightful analytics around transaction and business reports.

ProgressPlay’s powerful platform of over 2000 casino games is made up of a wealth of aggregated content ranging from slots, online casino and live casino, to poker and table games, as well as a sportsbook, that operators can access via easy integration to drive player engagement and revenue, demonstrating the ability to continuously deliver value based on a responsible gaming approach. A raft of almost 150 online casino brands has already teamed up with ProgressPlay to bring their casino and sportsbetting platforms to life.

ProgressPlay CEO Itai Loewenstein said: “Responsible Gaming is not a one-time exercise but rather an on-going process for the ProgressPlay team. No matter how many structures and processes ProgressPlay has in place, we are committed to regularly update and review them for the benefit of increased stakeholder engagement and closer relationships with all internal and external stakeholders.”

FC Porto and Betano Open New Sensory Room at Dragão Stadium

FC Porto has taken a new step in making the Dragão stadium more inclusive for everyone, as last Saturday it introduced a new sensory room in partnership with Betano, the club’s main sponsor. The sensory room is called INZONE and it is addressed to neurodivergent people, individuals with difficulties in processing sensory information (System Spectrum Disorder, Autism, Sensory Processing Dysfunction, Intellectual Deficit, Mental Health Illness). INZONE is a space that aims to make the football experience more accessible, as it allows watching games in a controlled environment, which minimises sensory overload experiences.

This is FC Porto’s latest of many initiatives that promote inclusiveness in football. In the same direction, the club has introduced audio-descriptive commentary, the transmission of the club’s anthem in English sign language on the stadium screens and the application of the ColorAdd code.

Built in partnership with Betano and the School of Health of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto (Escola Superior de Saúde do Politécnico do Porto), INZONE consists of three stages. The first stage, which is the sensory room itself, provides neurodiverse fans with privacy and control over all sensory stimuli. The second stage reduces control and gradually prepares them for the third stage, INZONE’s ultimate goal, which is to enable the integration of these people and their families in the stadium stands along with the other fans.

“It is a great honour for us at Kaizen Gaming and Betano, to launch this initiative that creates a more inclusive environment for people with sensory challenges. The new sensory room at the Dragão stadium is a significant step towards social integration and diversity. With the invaluable support of the President of FC Porto and in collaboration with the School of Health of Porto, we have created a safe and calming space. At Kaizen Gaming, we are committed to continuously supporting initiatives that promote social awareness and equality for all. We thank FC Porto for their collaboration and for the opportunity to contribute to the creation of a world that accepts and supports social inclusion,” Panos Konstantopoulos, President of Kaizen Foundation, said.

The newly founded Kaizen Foundation is a charitable organisation funded by Kaizen Gaming.

“FC Porto has been carrying out work around sustainability and, more specifically, inclusion, which I am very proud of and which has been described as being a point of reference. This is another step we are taking in partnership with Betano and the School of Health of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, which allows us to equip the Dragão Stadium with amenities that did not exist before that make us more inclusive and prepared to welcome all Porto fans,” Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa, President of FC Porto, said.
