Player protection and prevention were the order of the day at the Responsible Gaming Symposium held this week at Novomatic's headquarters in Austria.
From preventative measures in the operating business of the subsidiary Admiral to regulatory aspects, the first-rate panel of experts agreed that taking responsibility is the key to sustainable business.
Novomatic also used the event to emphasise that the group is only active in markets with a clear set of laws and regulations and that player protection plays a key role here.
The importance of this topic was also underscored by the fact that Robert Hofians, supervisory board member of Novomatic, and Alexander Legat, chairman of the supervisory board of Admiral Casinos and Entertainment, both attended.
The participants of the Responsible Gaming Symposium were warmly welcomed by Johannes Gratzl, Novomatic executive board member, at the headquarters in Gumpoldskirchen.
Gratzl began by emphasising the great importance of responsible entertainment within the group. “We are constantly implementing measures designed to make further improvements in the area of prevention," he said.
"Some of these measures go far beyond what is required by law, confirmed by the fact we are certified in accordance with the highest international player protection standard of the Global Gambling Guidance Group, making us the first Austrian gaming company to receive such certification.”
