Popular Ontario gamlbing operator, Rush Street Interactive (RSI), announced that it will be teaming up with Neccton, a B2B gambling solutions company, to provide an added layer of player protection. The brand will be the first North American-based online gambling company to receive RG Check iGaming Accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) for its BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse sites.
RG Check is widely known as the world’s most comprehensive and rigorous responsible gaming accreditation program. The accreditation is valid for three years and is reviewed by a prestigious panel of independent responsible gaming specialists.
How Does Neccton Help Protect Players
Neccton will provide Rush Street Interactive with its real-time data analysis player protection solution which is named, Mentor. Mentor identifies any changes in players’ spending behaviours as well as tracks high-risk players and makes sure they receive the relevant alerts and notifications prior ro excessive gambling.
The software is an AI-powered solution which can recognize a whole host of triggers that includes increased deposits/spending. By giving the operator an alert when a player is overspending, operators can intervene in time and prevent gambling harm among their players.
Rush Street went live in Ontario on April 4th via BetRivers, a real-money online casino and sportsbook. RG Check accreditation has been mandated into the requirements for all iGaming operators entering the Ontario marketplace by iGaming Ontario (iGO) but has not been fully enforced. RSI will be leading the way for other Ontario brands to follow suit in the coming months.
