Westlotto partners with OpenBet’s Neccton to boost compliance controls

OpenBet has announced a partnership with German lottery operator, WestLotto, to supply Neccton’s gambling compliance products.

In detail, World Lottery Association (WLA) member WestLotto will be integrating OpenBet-owned Neccton’s responsible gaming, anti-money laundering (AML) and fraud detection service – exceeding regulatory expectations and boosting responsible gaming.

Michael Auer, Managing Director of Neccton at OpenBet, said: “Our new partnership with WestLotto is hugely exciting and we are delighted to foster this significant relationship with Germany’s largest lottery provider.

“This is a significant move for us as it makes Neccton the largest responsible gaming provider in this market. We look forward to continuing our growth and enjoying a successful working relationship with WestLotto.”

This latest agreement marks the 18th lottery operator to have partnered with OpenBet. 

The agreement also follows OpenBet’s announcement that it had been accepted as a Gold Contributor with the WLA last year, and highlights Neccton’s position as a ‘trusted partner to lotteries worldwide’.

“Player protection as part of responsible gaming is a top priority for WestLotto,” added Axel Weber, Head of Public Affairs, Communication and Responsible Gaming at WestLotto. “This applies to both terrestrial and online gaming.

“Neccton’s OpenBet provides us with a tool that meets our player protection requirements and helps us to offer our players an even safer gaming environment online.

“We look forward to working with OpenBet and Neccton in ensuring players can continue to enjoy our games.”
