Safer Gambling Week: Better Collective Launches Problem Gambling Detection Tool Across its Brand Sites
Gamalyze is a virtual card game offered to online gamblers where the player tries to maximize the win. During the game, decision making is analyzed, using validated neuroscientific principles. The analysis provides deep insight into gambling behavior, thus identifying key characteristics associated with problem gambling.
Jesper Søgaard, CEO and Co-Founder of Better Collective says: “Responsible gambling is a very important part of our business philosophy. By implementing Gamalyze on our websites, we give visitors an opportunity to test their gambling habits and find out if their gambling behaviour presents as fun and entertaining, as it should be, or if it is potentially problematic”.
Bettingexpert.com is one of the first Better Collective sites with Gamalyze launched. Other platforms will follow in the coming period.
Neil Smith, head of Bettingexpert.com says: “Bettingexpert.com is the world’s biggest social network of sports betting tipsters. We have millions of visitors every year and with Gamalyze launched, we increase our focus on responsible gambling so our community can feel even safer when they visit our site”.
Gamalyze is a self-test developed by Mindway AI, who has Better Collective as a majority shareholder. Mindway AI provides a range of solutions for the gaming industry that helps identify, prevent and intervene in at-risk and problem gambling.
Safer Gambling Week
The Safer Gambling Week is a cross-industry initiative to promote safer gambling in GB and Ireland. This year it runs from November 1-7 2021 and together with bettingexpert.com Better Collective supports the campaign with a number of initiatives that will put focus on safer gambling and where to find advice and support.
Better Collective is among the founding members of the organisation Responsible Affiliate in Gambling (RAiG) which works to increase focus on problem gambling in the industry. RAiG is an independent body set up to help raise standards in the sector, particularly in respect of responsible gambling. The association aims to foster wider initiatives in the UK affiliate marketing sector to promote social responsibility and help create a safer gambling environment for consumers.
The body was founded in May 2019 and as a condition of membership, each member will be subject to an annual social responsibility audit which will be conducted by an independent third party.
