PlayPause® enables a more effective and robust responsible gaming program.
It provides consumers with a straightforward avenue for self-exclusion across multiple jurisdictions in a simple way.
PlayPause® facilitates the de-identification of consumers, removing or manipulating all known direct and indirect identifiers to stop the leaking to real-world identifiers. No personally identifiable information (PII) is shared.
PlayPause® creates a national repository for the first time, eliminating silos. Working across multiple states, it stops incidents of consumers crossing a state line and continuing to gamble.
Keep control over all the consumer data, personally identifiable information and state-run self-exclusion lists, while only submitting the information to PlayPause® if enrollees consent.
PlayPause® keeps state regulations intact and enforced while extending the consumers protections across state lines.
PlayPause® is also an involuntary persons repository. Regulators may submit their employee-prohibited bettors database to PlayPause® to ensure those employees (impermissible bettors) are stopped from wagering.
There is no financial cost to enroll in PlayPause®.
Consumers visit the website of the state regulator they wish to initiate a self-exclusion with. They choose the parameters of their pause in play (based on regulatory guidelines), confirm their choices and submit it securely and electronically.
Consumers/states opt in to sharing the information with the PlayPause® system.
PlayPause® stores tokens with no personally identifiable information.
Any online gaming operator with PlayPause® integrated can now check the PlayPause® system in real-time and consumers in the PlayPause® repository will be prohibited from wagering.
Consumers may return to the state regulator website at any time to request removal from exclusion.
