LeoVegas Group has announced they will be assigning individual deposit limits for all UK customers, in order to improve affordability checks and to increase safer gambling interactions among players.
Utilizing third-party data and a proprietary risk prediction model, UK players will be assigned a personalized deposit limit on their first deposit, which will then be frequently re-evaluated using the most recent data.
LeoVegas already provides and encourages their UK customers to access safer gambling tools via AI-powered messaging on their site, however the Swedish online casino said that the newly-imposed deposit limits will further strengthen its safer gambling offering.
The personalized deposit limits and affordability checks will be launched across all LeoVegas UK-serving brands.
A LeoVegas UK update stated, "Third-party affordability data combined with AI further enhances analysis of customers' behavior and automatically prevents at risk customers from making new deposits. Personalized deposit limits and onsite messages are examples of new initiatives using AI and innovative technology to make gambling safer."
LeoVegas Group chief executive Gustaf Hagman said, "Safer Gambling is one of our top priorities at LeoVegas: by ensuring a safe gambling experience we believe we are building more sustainable relationships with our customers.
"New technology has given us the power to refine these interactions and tailor them to our customers' specific circumstances, making them more personalized and even more effective."
The launch of the new individual deposit limits coincides with this year's Safer Gambling Week, which occurred on the first seven days of November.
uk players every few months have some new restriction,even this was something that they talked about months ago,but now this will be added to their account!after no option for buy in future and that they will set up max bet per spin,like it is in local casinos,now they will even need to have deposit limits!they really want to restrict everything to players!
It is not good to set limits , I believe these limits will not protect the weaker very loose gamblers , the players will spend the total amount of dollars they wish to bet or gamble in a day , even if that means they won't spend it in one casino or poker room but in many
! got very confused with the limits that i had to set on Bwin , making mistakes ,i had to set new limits again as the first time I made mistakes , then I had to wait for a day or a week to pass so as for the new limits to be set , then again mistake , lol . Anyway , that way nobody will be protected i think ... also there is one stupid thing I have with Bwin.gr , there is a delay in slots , i cannot play as fast as I would desire , this is soooo frustrating , especially when I lose ..... It is supposed to protect us by limiting the spins/hour , but in fact it's so annoying , tilting ....
Uk goverment want to do this because of this who spend social help on gambling,but you cant do this for all people and to watch them how much they earn and everything and then to set them how much they will spend!very stupid!
I think the limits are set per casino or poker room , they are not for all gambling sites , at least this happens in Greece . So sb can play in one casino online , then go to another and go on playin g , when the limit on the previous one had be reahed . Live I think there is no limit to any player in Greece , I do not know for other countries , haven;t heard about restrictions in live casino rooms , besides the highe stakes ofcourse , only for the protection og the HOUSE , from losing too many millions of $$$ , especially to pros .
you can in on you tube,if you watch some videos,that some streamers are in ireland now,that they can play normally,that they can have buy in future option,to raise bets,to do whatever they want! on this way uk goverment want to take control about everything,but its stupid that they even tell you what is max bet for you per spin!
Well I think the measure is not good. I don't think much that that is the reason, but rather that the Government wants to have better control of everything, and not lose the money of its citizens (that they go to another country). But I think that what they achieve is precisely the opposite effect. Big players prefer to go to other countries to be able to play normally without restrictions or big taxes.
If governaments care about their citizens , they should create conditions for real free mrket and economy , so for the customers to have many options , better services . Customers are not children , they know when to spend and how much , at least the greatest majority of them . If there is a 1% or 5% that spends recklessly , they can spot/identify them and take some protection measures for them with other ways , not everyone has to pay the price if a 1% or 5% has addiction problems . IMO
on one side they want to take lot of money from taxes and everything that they charge to this companies,but on other you restrict them in everything!I know that they dont want that players spend every penny that they have,but come on,to have limit on bet per spin on 2 e,to make restrictions about deposit,to watch every step what players do!sick!
Hmm those restrictions, i don't know. If you check there is always a way to walk around it. It's not that hard at all. This business is just to big to control it. The amount of money been spend every day is gigantic. Its just that the UK governement dont get enough return for this business. All been placed on some tax free islands. The only winners are the casino themselves.
