Player protection solutions provider Playscan has rolled out its behaviour monitoring product across Norsk-Tipping's video lottery terminals.

The Norwegian state-owned operator, which this week went live with a suite of iGaming products, becomes the first to launch the Playscan solution for video lottery terminals (VLTs), as well as for all its online and mobile products.

Norwegian players must use a personalised ID card, known as a player’s card, to access land-based gaming machines and enter gambling venues, which allows the issuing operator to collect data on all player activity. This data gives Playscan the required information to track potentially dangerous gambling behaviour and create forecasts of future playing habits.

Norsk Tipping chief executive Torbjorn Almlid said that responsible gambling had always been a key issue for the operator, adding that he was proud to have become the first company to launch the Playscan solution for land-based gambling.

“The Playscan team is highly professional, not only regarding the system but has also provided us with great knowledge regarding future communication and education on responsible gambling,” Almlid explained.

The companies will work together to expand Norsk Tipping’s responsible gaming strategy to create a more sustainable and secure environment for its customers.

“We are delighted to work with Norsk Tipping, a company that takes responsible gambling extremely seriously,” Playscan chief executive Adreas Holmström commented.
