Data science firm Neccton has expanded its mentor software into the Canadian province of Ontario through a partnership with SkillOnNet and the latter’s various brands that are live in the market.
Neccton’s mentor software, which includes modules for fraud, AML, and aCRM, will be implemented for SkillOnNet brands such as PlayOJO, SpinGenie, and SlotsMagic.
SkillOnNet’s Safe Mate program will also be powered by Neccton’s software. This allows customers to track how much money they have deposited, how much money has been wagered, and how much time has been spent on the site over the last six months. It also acts as a safer gambling assistant for each player that visits the site, as well as allowing players to compare what they think they have spent with what they have actually spent. If a player is considered at risk, they are given personal feedback and tailored communications to help prevent problem gambling from occurring.
Neccton’s Director and head of Development, Dr. Michael Auer, said: “We started our research in gambling over 15 years ago and have published multiple academic studies in the area of player tracking and responsible gaming. We have shown that players who gamble responsibly are more loyal, and their customer lifetime is significantly longer. It is our aim to protect players to the best possible extent everywhere in the world, and working with well-established internationally-respected companies like SkillOnNet and their brands is helping us to do exactly that.”
“Player protection is the cornerstone of Ontario’s new online gaming market, and it’s also a crucial issue for SkillOnNet in all jurisdictions we operate in,” added Anastasios Vasios, Director of New Regulated Markets Compliance at SkillOnNet. “Neccton’s software not only helps us comply with regulations, but it helps us meet our own extremely high standards of responsible gaming.”
SkillOnNet went live to players with key brands PlayOJO, SpinGenie and SlotsMagic on June 8.
