Germany's largest lottery operator, WestLotto, has chosen to enhance its compliance capabilities by partnering with OpenBet and deploying Neccton's advanced technology.
The collaboration aims to fortify responsible gaming measures and amplify insights into player behavior.
Established in 1955, WestLotto, a proud member of the World Lottery Association (WLA), has consistently prioritized sustainability and responsible gaming. Neccton, owned by OpenBet, emerges as a fitting ally, bringing a suite of tools dedicated to responsible gaming, anti-money laundering (AML), and fraud detection.
The integration of Neccton's technology into WestLotto's operations is poised to surpass regulatory requirements, ensuring robust responsible gaming protocols. This strategic move is geared towards fostering a safer betting environment for players, aligning with WestLotto's commitment to responsible gaming practices.
With a reputation as a premier provider for lotteries globally, OpenBet's partnership with WestLotto marks the 18th collaboration with a lottery operator. OpenBet's acceptance as a Gold Contributor with the WLA in the previous year further underscores the company's commitment to the lottery industry, with Neccton positioned as a reliable ally for lotteries worldwide.
Michael Auer, Managing Director of Neccton at OpenBet, expressed excitement about the partnership, stating, “Our new partnership with WestLotto is hugely exciting and we are delighted to foster this significant relationship with Germany’s largest lottery provider.
This is a significant move for us as it makes Neccton the largest responsible gaming provider in this market. We look forward to continuing our growth and enjoying a successful working relationship with WestLotto.”
Axel Weber, Head of Public Affairs, Communication, and Responsible Gaming at WestLotto, emphasized the significance of player protection in responsible gaming, stating, “Player Protection as part of Responsible Gaming is a top priority for WestLotto. We look forward to working with OpenBet and Neccton in ensuring players have a safe gambling environment and can continue to enjoy our games.”
This collaboration underscores the collective commitment of WestLotto, OpenBet, and Neccton to advance responsible gaming practices and set new standards in player protection within the German gaming market.
