Gambling/General : A new eCOGRA Initiative

By George Oates

Level: Jun 23rd 2006
The well known Aristotle International and the National Council on Problem Gambling have teamed up in order to create a new international self-exclusion database that will be known as GSED for problem gamblers at online casino sites.

This new technology makes usage of an age and ID-verification system widely recognized as Integrity. GSED is a very strict and confidential database of individuals tat on their own free will have chosen to exclude themselves from gambling at online casinos or other such gambling establishments.

This new service made particularly for online casino players is going to be accessible from the National Council on Problem Gambling’s website as well as on the main page of Aristotle International. At present, responsible gambling databases that are listing compulsive and problem gamblers are not usually managed centrally. This simply means that the different online casino operates their own lists, which furthermore means that a player wishing to register as a problem gambler may be required to complete a multiple online casinos query.

This new technology is likely to be used by many of the online casinos and poker rooms that have gained the eCOGRA “Play It Safe” seal. If you would wish to register on the GSED, you must first identify yourself and than select from the options of a one-year, five-year or lifetime ban at online casinos. Once this is done, you cannot remove yourself from the list prior to the dates that you have chosen. Now if a player whose name is on the list tries to open an account in order to play at the online casinos, he will be denied access. This technology has been very well perceived in the online gaming industry and is expected to help combat rising levels of compulsive gambling.
