GeoComply leads donation to the National Council on Problem Gambling

Geolocation compliance technology providers GeoComply announced that they have raised $45,220 for the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG).

Raised at an industry event prior to the G2E conference in Las Vegas, the function was hosted at philanthropist Diana Bennett’s residence and included gaming industry executives from around the world.

“Player welfare is an extremely important conversation in our industry and we are seeing preventative developments as technology suppliers work to identify behavior markers, operators expand training & support programs and regulators enhance their responsible gambling regulations,” stated Anna Sainsbury, founder and CEO, GeoComply.

“NCPG is the support system for those vulnerable people that are in need of help. As our industry receives very little funding from the National Institute of Health, it is up to us to come together to financially drive preventative and care programs for citizens.”

As well as GeoComply, the donations were raised by multiple partners of the firm plus additional funds were collected through individual donations from guests at the event.

The other companies involved include: Worldpay Gaming, SG Digital, Sightline Payments, VAIX, Accertify and GameSecure.

GeoComply currently supports regulated online casino, poker, sports betting, lottery, ADW and DFS operators in 43 US states to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations. 

NCPG is the national advocate for programs and services to assist people, families and communities experiencing problem gambling. 

The council works alongside a range of institutions including the government, counsellors, treatment facilities, lottery agencies and the gambling industry.
