LeoVegas Launches LeoSafePlay

The new venture is designed to ensure that players everywhere enjoy the games on offer in a responsible manner.

LeoVegas, one of the world’s most well known online casinos offering games throughout Canada, has launched its innovative responsible gaming platform LeoSafePlay, the company has announced. The new venture is designed to ensure that players everywhere enjoy the games on offer in a responsible manner.

The comprehensive and thorough nature of the initiative is being widely lauded throughout the online casino community.

Self-Assessment Tool

LeoSafePlay is actually a suite of tools that will allow players to better understand, record, and assess their online gaming activity. Prominent amongst these is the self-assessment tool, which offers an objective measuring stick for players to gauge if their online casino gaming is being undertaken responsibly.

The tool works by presenting four specific types of problem gambling that can be assessed:

  • 1) I’m gambling more than I intend to
  • 2) I feel I have developed a gambling addiction
  • 3) Someone I know is a problem gambler
  • 4) An underage person I know is gambling online

 

If a player believes that they are suffering from any of the above, the tool will offer them tips and strategies for how to seek further assistance. This assistance is designed to be universal and can be used at any online casino. In addition, the LeoVegas site specifically will have additional options so players can force a change in habits by having their play restricted or deposit levels limited.

An Industry Imperative

Recent months have seen an increasing focus on ensuring that players enjoy online casinos responsibly. In the UK, the 888 online casino was fined for not doing enough to protect against problem gambling — an example that the industry needs to do more that other operators are sure to take note of.

In speaking about LeoSafePlay, Noel Zammit, Head of Customer Support at LeoVegas, emphasized the need to ensure that gaming remains fun. With the launch of the LeoSafePlay tool, the entire industry should applaud their efforts and wish them the best of luck in setting a new trend and standard for all online casino operators.
