Intralot Australia has rolled out the first Voluntary Pre-commitment Scheme branded YourPlay for a network of 28,500 electronic gaming machines (EGM) across the State of Victoria, including the Melbourne Casino.
The official launch follows a contract sealed in 2014 between Intralot and the Victorian Government to operate the pre-commitment service for a period of 12 years, until August 2027.
The Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, Jane Garrett, said: “The Andrews Labor Government is leading the way when it comes to the rollout of YourPlay. This is just one of the tools we are giving people to reduce gambling-related harm in the community.”
Nikos Nikolakopoulos, Intralot Group COO, commented: “Intralot has a successful track record in the delivery of demanding and challenging projects across geographies. We are extremely pleased to celebrate today the launch of an unprecedented Voluntary Pre-commitment Scheme. We are confident that it is a great asset of the Victorian Government and will strongly support it in its endeavours to enhance Responsible Gaming across the state.”
The Pre-Commitment solution in Victoria, Australia is a state-of-the-art and world leading Responsible Gaming initiative. The scheme is voluntary for players, it is, however, mandatory to be offered on all gaming machines operating in Victoria including at the Melbourne Casino. Victorians will have the power to track and limit their betting on any electronic gaming machine in the state. The technology allows players to limit their spending spend, track their time, and set personalised warning messages.
