Responsible gaming in casino and lottery gaming industries has traditionally been focused on providing the consumer with messaging and tools, such as self-exclusion, to enable the consumer to monitor their behavior.
But digital payments have the power to transform those tools by adding additional consumer options including deposit, time, and spending limits; inputs from financial institutions, such as velocity controls and spend limits by merchant category code (MCC); and the ability for operators to use technology to better identify potential problematic behavior and build in additional interventions for players.
The American Gaming Association, through their Payments Modernization efforts, helps to outline the additional protections incorporated into digital payments in the gaming industry.
