Problem Gambling Receives More Attention
This autumn is set to witness history in the making since the gambling operator is planning to introduce the first-ever loss limit on its games and potentially prevent problem gambling from becoming a wide-spread phenomenon. With the help of this innovation, Paf is striving to bring better days to the international field in general and become a preferred and safer alternative to traditional gambling operators.
The said limit is set to be applied on an annual basis, as it would allow players to lose up to €30,000 and not a cent more. The 1st September is set to bring the innovation to the international field, which, as it has been previously estimated, is going to result in a 5-percent plunge when it comes to the annual profits of the company. The change is set to affect players from all countries which enjoy the offerings of Paf. According to the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Christer Fahlstedt, the positive impact this new feature is forecasted to introduce are going to eliminate any potential fear of revenue loss.
This is an issue which could go unnoticed for longer periods of time and if it remains unchecked, things could easily go out of hand in a matter of weeks. Many countries around the world are doing their best to make sure players are aware of the risks coming with gaming with cash and how this could negatively affect their livelihood and their loved ones, but according to Paf, the company is making a groundbreaking move with the introduction of the annual limit.
Up to this point gambling addiction programs have been encouraged around the world and especially in Nevada, which is known for its gambling field, but they have not been a mandatory part of the gaming process. Paf has been working on its problem gambling measures for quite some time now as it is willing to provide players with a unique experience when it comes to gaming.
As many as 9,400 people registered in the database of the casino developer have been contacted over the span of the past year, in an attempt to collect information and potentially offer them the help they are currently seeking, but not necessarily finding. This number equals a fivefold surge in the number of suspected problem gambling users which had been contacted in 2016.
