iGaming Operators: Optimove Survey Analysis Shows Responsible Gambling Measures Build Player Trust and Loyalty
Findings from the Optimove 2023 iGaming Survey shed light on players’ positions on the ongoing challenge of tackling problematic gambling behavior within the iGaming industry. According to an analysis released by Optimove at Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas, an overwhelming 75% of players perceive responsible gambling tools as instrumental in bolstering trust and loyalty towards operators. The results are from the Optimove 2023 Report of Players’ Preferences in iGaming Marketing.
Impressively, approximately 90% of players actively set betting limits and a remarkable 97% demonstrate awareness of responsible gambling resources with 56% actively utilizing them. This highlights the escalating significance of iGaming sites’ responsible gambling initiatives and suggests that responsible gambling initiatives not only benefit players but also enhance the reputation and customer retention of operators.
Responsible gambling poses a critical challenge in the iGaming industry. Neglecting responsible gambling measures can lead to problem gambling, eroding trust and loyalty in operators. It’s essential for a healthy, sustainable player-operator relationship.
To address these insights, the Optimove 2023 iGaming Survey offers five key recommendations serving as a playbook for iGaming operators and helping them craft a personalized and socially responsible marketing strategy. This approach not only enhances the player experience but also effectively mitigates the risk of players developing unhealthy habits and practices:
- Promote Responsible Gambling: Operators should actively promote responsible gambling resources, fostering trust and loyalty by featuring them prominently on their website and in marketing materials.
- Encourage Betting Limits: Operators should encourage players to set betting limits by implementing user-friendly features for limit adjustment.
- Continuous Education: Operators should educate players about responsible gambling including potential risks and recognizing problem gambling signs.
- Monitor and Support: Operators should establish systems to monitor player behavior, offering timely support and intervention when needed, showcasing their commitment to player well-being.
- Use Data Analytics: Operators should leverage a customer data platform (CDP) for data analytics to identify and support players at risk of gambling problems, enabling early intervention.
These survey results come on the heels of Gartner Ranking Optimove #1 in Journey Orchestration in its 2023 Critical Capabilities for Multichannel Marketing Hubs. Optimove is also positioned highest in execution and vision among Challengers in the Magic Quadrant for Multichannel Marketing Hubs and is recognized as a noted leader in customer intelligence and measurement and optimization.
Visit Optimove at G2E in Las Vegas, October 10 to 12, in booth 2630 to get the report and further iGaming insights.
