Player Behaviour Panel Presentation: What Have We Learned from “Big Data” in Responsible Gaming? Does it Change the Way We Play?

In online and card-based gambling, every player’s behaviour can be tracked precisely and marketing departments use this wealth of information to increase player insight. Numerous scientists have pointed out the importance of behavioural tracking as a means of early risk-detection and harm minimization.

In this session, three well-known software vendors – PlayScan, Bet Buddy and neccton – will discuss how behavioural tracking tools have been successfully applied and will share their experiences with these approaches.
