The certification by the Global Gambling Guidance Group has been highlighted by Novomatic as a sign of its responsible gambling focus, further promoting its safer gambling certifications in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.
Johannes Gratzl, Member of the Executive Board of Novomatic, commented on the new G4 certification: “The successful G4 certification according to the highest international player protection standard that we now have in Italy and Spain is a remarkable success for us and proves the high importance of player and youth protection at Novomatic”.
Meanwhile, Ynze Remmers, Lead Auditor at G4, added: “G4, as a worldwide accreditation program, urges the gambling industry to take responsibility and minimise the impact of problem gambling on communities.
“Novomatic, successfully passing audits in their five biggest markets and the Netherlands, coupled with the most recent successful audits in Italy and Spain, is showing that the chosen route is working. Novomatic demonstrates that responsible gambling and harm minimisation is a top priority.”
