Data science firm Neccton has expanded its mentor software into the Canadian province of Ontario after a key operator went live in the jurisdiction.
Following SkillonNet’s entry into the Ontarian market, Neccton’s responsible gambling and player protection software is also operational in the booming market, which opened up in April.
Neccton is a prevalent player in the lottery industry, providing its mentor player protection mechanisms to Lotto Hessen and Lotto NZ amongst others.
“We started our research in gambling over 15 years ago and have published multiple academic studies in the area of player tracking and responsible gaming,” said Neccton Director and Head of Development, Dr Michael Auer.
“We have shown that players who gamble responsibly are more loyal, and their customer lifetime is significantly longer.
“It is our aim to protect players to the best possible extent everywhere in the world, and working with well-established internationally-respected companies like SkillOnNet and their brands is helping us to do exactly that.”
Neccton powers SkillOnNet’s Safe Mate programme which allows customers to track how much money they have deposited, wagered and lost as well as the time spent on the site over a six-month period.
Anastasios Vasios, Director of New Regulated Markets Compliance at SkillOnNet, added: “Player protection is the cornerstone of Ontario’s new online gaming market, and it’s also a crucial issue for SkillOnNet in all jurisdictions we operate in. Neccton’s software not only helps us comply with regulations, but it helps us meet our own extremely high standards of responsible gaming.”
