We want established operators to sign up and become trailblazers for this initiative, demonstrating just how seriously they take player protection.Keith Whyte, executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling
Currently, state regulations in the USA only require online gambling sites to provide a basic level of protection for their players. The National Council on Problem Gambling has noticed that some licensed online gambling sites in America do have responsible gaming polices that go beyond what is legally required of them.
The National Council on Problem Gambling has decided to work directly with the Gambling Integrity Services, to help online operators to conform to their criteria for responsible gaming programs as they believe the current regulations put in place by government are not good enough. This will allow existing sites to apply for an independent evaluation of their responsible gaming programs. If a site manages to comply with The National Council on Problem Gambling’s criteria, then they will receive a certificate to display on their site.
The evaluation process is currently being finalised and will be trialled in the next couple of months.
