A few years ago, online gaming operators in India were focusing their efforts on expanding their presence and bringing in new players as there wasn’t a lot of interest in online poker, rummy and bingo. All that has changed in the last few years as young Indian players have realized that they can make a decent living by gambling online.
The Indian market has also witnessed a number of new domestic and international operators set up shop in the country. The online gambling market has grown significantly in the last 24 months and now iGaming operators are focusing on making their online offerings safer and more player friendly.
Adda52 which is the leading online gambling site in India was the first operator to enable responsible gambling features. They set the trend and as expected a number of other online gaming sites are following suit. 9stacks has become the latest operator to start offering players responsible gambling features that will help them not fall into the trap of becoming a gambling addict.
9stacks Offers Responsible Gambling Options
Players who have an account with 9stacks will now be able to take advantage of these responsible gaming features to set limits on the amount they deposit, the time they spend online and limits that they want to spend on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. The self-exclusion feature is also available at 9stacks.
This feature will allow players to voluntarily ban themselves from accessing the 9stacks website for a period ranging from 3 months and up to 12 months. Once the ban is imposed, players will not be able to remove the ban until the time period is over.
In a statement, Sudhir Kamath, CEO of 9Stacks stated “For us, responsible gaming is about protecting our players from the potential negative consequences of online gaming. Via Responsible Gaming, we aim to ensure that our users have a safe experience while playing on 9stacks. We will give full freedom to the users to create their own playing limits so that they can control their actions, and play safely at the same time.”
More Operators Must Implement Responsible Gaming
Given the fact that online gaming is growing at such a rapid rate in India, the All India Gaming Federation (AIGF) and the Indian Federation for Sports Gaming (IFSG) has urged online gaming operators in India to implement responsible gaming features in order to better protect Indian players from gambling harm.
