Casino Guru has revealed the blue paper for its global initiative



Casino Guru’s Complaint Resolution Center Reaches a Major Milestone with 5,000 resolved Complaints


Casino Guru has revealed the blue paper for its global initiative to provide gamblers in all jurisdictions with an additional layer of protection through its Global Self-Exclusion System (GSES). Outlined in the company’s blue paper, GSES seeks to create a functioning and reliable way to improve consumer protection online.

GSES will create an opportunity for consumers to exclude privately from online gambling services, thus ensuring that they are not able to gamble in the designated period of the exclusion at any gambling website that is partner to GSES. Casino Guru Sustainable & Safer Gambling Lead Šimon Vincze welcomed the publication of the blue paper and said:

“We are happy to have introduced blue paper to our partners and industry stakeholders, as it outlines the exact functional and technical details of the Global Self-Exclusion System. Discussions are now more concrete than ever before, creating opportunities for tangible collaborations. It is one of the milestones on the roadmap we intend to follow in improving consumer protection.”

Casino Guru seeks to collaborate with prominent gambling operators across jurisdictions who are committed to improving overall player protection and who are willing to join the GSES initiative to provide consumers with an additional possible level of security.

The team behind the initiative has set several priorities, including keeping consumers out of harm’s way, ensuring that any entry logged into the GSES respects the privacy of the consumer, and offering a reliable way for players to block their access to gambling.

Casino Guru’s product takes on the ambitious goal to exceed the reach of other blocking and self-exclusion solutions, such as excluding at a single operator or using other means to limit consumer gambling.

The company seeks to collaborate with stakeholders, who are prepared to protect their consumers across numerous jurisdictions, and seek to establish an independent authority that can preside over GSES that is fully-focused on securing new members and improving the overall effectiveness of the solution.

GSES has accounted for a number of potential complications and challenges . The blue paper has looked into key points such as identifying personal details and handling false positives, ensuring the privacy of the shared information and outlining a roadmap to implement the system. Vincze acknowledged the challenges that remain to be tackled:

“The biggest challenge is probably ensuring widespread implementation of the global scheme among operators and other industry stakeholders. The system is counting on voluntary participation as there probably never will be enforcement by regulators. We know there is a need on players’ side to exclude globally and will on operators’ side to reduce gambling harm. We can achieve widespread implementation with the functional and reliable global system with credible management.”

GSES will activate while a consumer is registering at an online gambling website will rely on API connection between participating gambling companies that automatically check if a person has self-excluded in the past through the system. To bolster privacy, GSES also works to introduce people to the system even if they are not in any need to self-exclude.

GSES banks on a simple integration with partner companies in order to improve effectiveness and have a better level of success with gambling operators. Casino Guru has also presented several examples in its blue paper explaining how GSES will work in practice and how it strives to protect consumers. Vincze noted that the company has met with several stakeholders to begin working on the system.

“We have met with several big players among operators and platform providers on with whom we will continue with our talks of possible implementation. We have also intensified our relations with player protection and RG research organizations to work together on international self-exclusion standards,” he concluded.

Explaining the background to and purpose of the initiative, Naomi Barton, Portfolio Director responsible for the iGB events brand said: “iGB INTRODUCING is  a considered response to the findings of our post-show research conducted amongst stakeholders attending the 2022 show. From our perspective research is all about identifying gaps and then providing creative solutions to meet the needs of our customers. The independent research which was conducted by Explori found that whilst iGB Affiliate London scored extremely well with visitors and exhibitors alike there was a need to help facilitate and encourage new connections and relationships.

“Whilst nearly 7 out of 10 attendees met new customers, partners and suppliers as a result of iGB Affiliate London there is significant appetite for more connections to identify products, solutions, industry trends and establish new business relationships.  The Journey of Connections will start in mid-January using the Swapcard App and culminates onsite courtesy of  the iGB INTRODUCING networking hub and the numerous business and social networking events which are a central part of the iGB Affiliate London experience.”

The simple four step process involves (1) Completion of an online profile on the official Swapcard Show app (2) Select meeting targets using the online filters and contact lists. (3) Review and accept on-site meetings and then (4) Meet connections in the signposted networking areas at show.  The App will go live in mid-January when those registered to iGB INTRODUCING will be contacted by a dedicated member of the iGB Affiliate Customer Success team to support and help generate onsite meetings.

Looking ahead to February’s event Naomi Barton added: “The 2023 edition of iGB Affiliate London will be the biggest on record and as the show continues to grow it’s imperative that we help visitors and exhibitors by providing curated networking opportunities which connect the numerous audiences whose support has helped to make iGB Affiliate London the pre-eminent global live event in the igaming affiliate space. iGB INTRODUCING is part of that ongoing commitment.”
