New Responsible Gaming Committee Founded by IGSA

Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

The International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA) has announced that its board of directors has voted to establish a Responsible Gaming Committee (RGC) in order to help its members address the issue of problem gambling. The new RGC comes after the organization created an Ethical AI Committee earlier this year.

Alan Feldman, a highly respected expert on responsible gambling and player protection, has agreed to work with the RGC. He is the chair emeritus of the International Center for Responsible Gaming and a fellow at the UNLV International Gaming Institute.

Earle G. Hall, the IGSA chair, provided details of the initiative and explained that they will create a global standard for responsible gambling based on best practices. He also praised regulators for the work they have done developing solutions tailored to their markets.

Moreover, it is time to shift the paradigm to a data-driven predictability model to remove the tremendous burden on regulators and operators. We are excited by the overwhelming response by our members, affiliates, and partners to be a part of this movement.

The RGC will be working to create a framework called the “Responsible Gaming Maturity Model” (RGMM). In the past, regulators have been encouraged to work together but have had problems with local entities. For example, in Europe, there is often talk of sharing lists of banned brands and blacklisted gambling websites. However, due to each country having its own regulatory regime, regulators have not managed to achieve this.

It is hoped that the RGMM will improve collaboration and lead to the creation of a basic policy that will raise responsible gambling standards based on quantitative data and KPIs.
