GeoComply has launched PlayPause, an innovative tool designed to modernise and strengthen the effectiveness of the igaming and online sports betting industry’s responsible gaming programmes.


Arriving in conjunction with Responsible Gaming Education Week, PlayPause provides an efficient way for operators to manage important aspects of their responsible gaming compliance requirements across multiple states.

PlayPause will be made available free-of-charge to operators via a newly established non-profit organisation, Conscious Gaming. Powered by GeoComply, the PlayPause solution will expand the protective self-exclusion bubble so that as players move from state to state in the US, the protection that they have asked for can also move with them. 

It also enables consumers to self-exclude across multiple states, empowers operators to strengthen responsible gaming programmes - and make more data-driven decisions – and streamlines the administrative burden.

Anna Sainsbury, GeoComply chairman and co-founder, said: “At GeoComply, we’re always looking for ways to leverage technology in a meaningful and responsible way.

“PlayPause is not only an important compliance tool, but a way we can unite the industry and regulators to deepen their shared commitment to responsible gaming and consumer protection.”
