NeoGames has been recognised for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) practises with a Responsible Gaming (RG) certification from the World Lottery Association (WLA).

An independent auditor was drafted in to conduct an assessment of the firm’s ilottery operations and the verdict proved positive for NeoGames as its platforms were found to align with the WLA’s RG standards ‘in every aspect’.

Practices assessed included research, employee programmes, remote gaming environments and stakeholder engagement.

Moti Malul, NeoGames CEO, commented: “We are proud to have qualified for Responsible Gaming certification by the WLA, recognising its importance to our customers and the demand for alignment with industry standards.

“Responsible gaming is deeply rooted in every facet of NeoGames’ operations, from our products to our services and our employees; this certification confirms our continued commitment to being a responsible ilottery supplier.”

The firm’s ilottery operations were recently praised by Malul after publication of its Q3 report which revealed it had set a quarterly record of $24.7m, up 22% year-on-year and up 8% sequentially.

NeoGames becomes the latest company to receive recognition from the WLA, which awarded similar responsible gaming certifications to the Missouri Lottery and the Oregon Lottery last summer.

Mélissa Azam, WLA CSR Senior Manager, added: “The WLA is pleased to officially recognise NeoGames’ adherence to WLA Responsible Gaming Guidelines for suppliers, highlighting their corporate social responsibility practices and attesting that player protection is a core aspect of their operations.”
