Mindway AI and DSWV offer gambling behaviour self-test for players
Mindway AI has partnered with the German Sports Betting Association (DSWV) to provide a self-test for players which analyses their gambling behaviour.
The test on the DSWV website will provide players with actionable tips, such as setting a budget, as well as giving them an assessment of their risk behaviour.
Rasmus Kjaergaard, CEO of Mindway AI, said: “Gamalyze analyses the game behaviour under real-world conditions, namely while the player randomly draws cards with which he either wins or loses money. Even if it’s just play money, the personal risk of risky gambling behaviour can be determined much better than with classic questionnaires.”
Mathias Dahms, DSWV president, added: “The DSWV is always working with its members and partners to make legal gambling more attractive for customers.
”The fun of the game is what unites us all. Player protection is a central component of this. We are pleased that we can improve player protection in Germany together with Mindway AI and now also make a self-test available to players and interested persons on our homepage.”
