We’re delighted to announce that GBG has been nominated in the Professional Services Operator category at EGR’s Australia Awards - congratulations to everyone involved! The winner will be announced at the EGR Australia Awards dinner on 21 February 2017, after the EGR Australia Summit.
As we’re already involved in the summit due our role on the panel discussing responsible gambling and self-exclusion, being nominated is the icing on the cake. With the category rewarding the professional services partner which delivered the best in specialist advice and support to their clients over the past 12 months, we feel it is recognition for the investment we’ve made in some key areas - namely real time player engagement and player protection.
The Australian gambling market is going through a period of change, and regulations are tightening. As a strategic supplier we are tasked with demonstrating how technology and data combine in a way that will protect the individual as well help regulators maintain standards – all whilst allowing operators to keep their businesses profitable.
It is not an easy balance to reach, but the last 12 months have produced some exciting technological advances and with real time player analytics coming to the fore GBG feel we can help all the industry stakeholders.
At the Summit I’ll be talking through the latest updates from Europe, Africa, and South America, highlighting the lessons learned from the various approaches to responsible gaming each jurisdiction has taken, as well as the UK self-exclusion project (NOSES) - which will have big implications for anyone with UK facing services. As we look to what might be introduced in Australia, there will be some interesting views on self-exclusion and problem gambling overall.
The GBG gaming team will be in attendance, and we look forward to the debate and the exciting times ahead for the sector.
