And naturally, a spokesperson from the Golden Nugget was quick to relay the news by adding in part. “It is our responsibility to maintain the highest standards for responsible gaming”. But also that the product will. “Provide online patrons with the safest and most robust options available”.
If it’s difficult, it will not work
One of the more important aspects when dealing with responsible gambling is the user interface. Meaning, if it’s too difficult and time-consuming, the players will not bother until it’s too late. That’s why a lot of energy has gone into the design of the PlayPause product. In fact, the company likes to call it a “Frictionless interface”. Both to enroll and to request removal from the ban database. And the same thing is true from the regulator’s end when it comes to approval and rejection. All in all, the new tool will not add any layer of complication. And you can still if you have a handle on your gambling, conduct betting as usual. Yet, the tool to block your access to online gambling is there to use if you choose to.
