Earlier this month, GeoComply hosted a Giving Challenge and party before the Global Gaming Expo 2019 in support of the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), the leading national organization in the US for people and their families who are affected by problem gambling and gambling addiction. GeoComply is a global leader in geolocation compliance technology used by operators in the online gambling industry.
Approximately 200 attendees enjoyed the spectacular home of Diana Bennett in Henderson, Nevada, overlooking a glittering vista of Las Vegas. The event brought together leaders from the online gambling industry with advocates from NCPG. Together, these two groups work to bolster responsible gambling ideas and implementation to help prevent and address problem gambling on the fast-growing online gambling platforms. NCPG provides the United States with the National Helpline Gambling Network – a free, confidential, and 24/7 call, text, and chat help service. In addition, NCPG offers the Internet Compliance Assessment Program (iCAP) for online gambling companies to help assure that the best responsible gambling services are available on online gambling platforms.
Over $46,000 was raised for NCPG by GeoComply with sponsorships from Accertify, GameSecure, Scientific Games/SGDigital, Sightline Payments, WorldPay Gaming, and VAIX.
“We are extremely pleased to have raised, along with our partners and guests, over $45,000 for the National Council on Problem Gambling at our pre-G2E event!” said Anna Sainsbury, Founder and Chairman, and David Briggs, CEO, of GeoComply. Several individuals who attended as guests also made donations, raising the total to almost $47,000.
“We are honored by the outpouring of support by leaders in the gambling industry,” said Keith Whyte, Executive Director of NCPG. “The GeoComply event clearly demonstrates that the online gambling industry has enlightened leaders and companies that see the value to their business in supporting national programs and services to assist people, families, and communities dealing with issues around problem gambling.”
