Six Belgian gaming operators sign the Duty of Care Covenant

By signing the covenant, the six operators commit to developing a prevention policy based on four pillars: a detection system based on algorithms, AI and scientifically based criteria that identifies potentially risky behaviour; actions or recommendations to protect the gambler, such as providing information on potential risks, proposing voluntary deposit limits or exclusion; education and training for staff so they can identify potential problems and take appropriate actions; and sharing the prevention policy with the Gaming Commission.

Meanwhile, new legislation will require betting shops to carry out identity checks as of 1 December. These controls will better prevent underage individuals or those on the Excluded Persons Information System (EPIS) from placing bets.
