Playtech receives accreditation for safe gambling
Published: August 3, 2021
A leading provider of gambling tech products, Playtech, has just obtained accreditation from GamCare for meeting safe gambling standards. The UK organization is known for supporting players with problem gambling.
The Safer Gambling Standard represents an independent quality standard from GamCare. It estimates the measures taken by the companies to protect players from online gambling harm. The organization also recognizes companies that place customer protection as one of the priorities in their operation.
Following the new recognition, Playtech received the Safer Gambling Standard prize for the casino platform as well as operations in Great Britain.
According to GamCare, Playtech deserves the prize thanks to the ‘Sustainable Success’ strategy along with the inclusion of the Stakeholder Advisory Board.
Both are perfect examples of good practice in the provider’s safe gambling approach.
The UK organization also highlighted ‘Playtech Protect’, which gathers together Playtech’s compliance and safer gambling technology, services, and solutions. It is further supported by BetBuddy, offering different products to online casinos.
As part of the accreditation process, Playtech has been reviewed for meeting strict business standards. It also passed a thorough review of gambling-related culture and support of safer gambling practices.
