Should any warning signs appear in the readouts, indicating that problem gambling habits may be developing, the system will inform the player.
Additionally, the link to Control Centre, which will be located at the top of each site, will include a host of new safer gambling tools. So, if any player is warned of potentially bad habits, action can immediately be taken to counteract the situation.

But, localised version are set to follow in all regions around the world that the company is present in. The entire global process is expected to be completed over the course of a few months.
