It’s almost Safer Gambling Week, a vital initiative and a fantastic opportunity for the industry to promote safer gambling. At Anthem, responsible play is a constant commitment and fundamental principle of our approach to personalising player experiences with AI – and it's not only the theme of this week or month, but every single day.
This year feels different though, as Anthem sets sail on a new course in the industry, bringing innovation to this important area of activity, with a focus on measuring all player experiences. You can find out more in my blog - please get in contact if you want to join our journey to use AI to improve player experiences and safety.
In order to make fast progress from responsible gambling to sustainable play, we've made another high-profile appointment, Svend Aage Kirk, which marks an important step in our long-term vision in this area.
On the other side of the spectrum to Safer Play, tomorrow evening, we'll also witness our own Ben Scobie-Trumper donning the boxing gloves and stepping into the ring for the SBC Charity Boxing Championship. We are all full of pride and support for his unwavering commitment to this charitable cause – and he has truly gone the extra mile not only dedicating his time, but also sacrificing his literal blood, sweat, and tears. Ben has put in extensive effort during his training, and we look forward to cheering him on and giving him our full support tomorrow.
