The Entain Foundation Launches the “Gamble Responsibly America” App
Entain Foundation, a UK gaming operator, and BetMGM, a US partner, are sponsoring a new responsible gaming app that will be marketed by Entain Foundation in the United States. The Gamble Responsibly America App will serve as an instructional tool for problem gamblers in the United States.
The software, which was created in collaboration with Epic Risk Management and RG24/7, will be made freely available on mobile devices. BetMGM, MGM Resorts, and Entain will not gain financially from the unbranded app. The app’s only purpose is to provide gamers with information and techniques for developing healthy and safe betting behaviors. Users will have immediate access to information.
As legalized sports betting spreads across the country, the Entain Foundation continues to advocate healthy gaming practices for US clients. The organization has established itself as a key advocate for responsible gaming through its support of several important responsible gambling projects. Consumers will have immediate access to English and Spanish-language guidance through the Gamble Responsibly America App.
The following are a few of the app’s major features:
Limits and Tools: The program teaches users how to control their gambling addictions by providing features such as weekly deposit limits and time-outs, which prevent users from entering into their accounts until a certain period of time has passed. Most operators provide such tools, which successfully assist players in controlling their game levels.
Self-Assessment Quiz: Users of Gamble Responsibly America can complete a brief self-assessment to see if their gambling habits need to be changed.
Individuals might keep a gambling diary in which they can record their gaming and betting decisions on a regular basis. This allows consumers to reflect on their decisions and investments and make adjustments as appropriate.
Sports betting in the United States surged during the epidemic, with $1.5 billion in income earned in 2020, according to the American Gaming Association. While states continue to benefit from the tax income generated by legalized sports betting, responsible gambling programs remain severely underfunded.
