MindwayAI and Proto partner up to localize responsible gaming
February 3, 2021
Mindway AI and Proto integrate their solutions for better intervention, offering precise and localized messaging from GameScanner through Proto’s virtual agents.
It is one thing to have insight and knowledge into online gambler profiles, and another thing to actively apply that knowledge through direct communication with players. By joining forces, Mindway AI and Proto are launching a multilingual virtual agent powered by GameScanner’s insight into problematic gambling behaviour. The result is direct and personalized communication with players in their local language, in order to create more responsible gaming ecosystems.
“We see great opportunity in entering a partnership with Proto, particularly because the virtual agent communicates with gamblers based on their profile in GameScanner. This allows for automated soft intervention at an earlier stage than is typically the case at present. Together we can create even better communication and improve the gamblers’ awareness of their habits which is a great step towards responsible gambling,” says CEO Rasmus Kjaergaard, Mindway AI.
“Proto’s work with supervisory authorities in emerging markets has demonstrated a pent-up demand for automated and localized consumer protection technology. In the responsible gaming context, supervisors and operators are typically procuring player behavioural analysis and engagement tools separately – with inefficiencies and missed opportunities for player protection. We’re excited to deliver this combined Mindway-Proto capability for rapid detection and local-language intervention. This is especially important in markets with historically-weaker regulatory capacity,” says CEO Curtis Matlock, Proto.
