Palansky brings 17 years of experience from Caesars Entertainment and the National Football League.
He will be tasked with leading Conscious Gaming’s Corporate Social Responsibility and Communication efforts.
“We believe the benefits of offering a technology-driven self exclusion tool are critical for our industry to ensure we protect all stakeholders,” said Anna Sainsbury, Conscious Gaming Trustee and GeoComply Chairman and Co-Founder. “We are excited to have Seth join us to front our adoption efforts and work with the industry to deliver Conscious Gaming’s state of the art solution to help simplify, streamline and stay ahead of a complex issue.”
Conscious Gaming uses advanced technology to promote responsible gaming. It works with gaming operators, regulators, suppliers, responsible gaming advocacy groups, sports leagues, academics and treatment professionals.
The hiring of Palansky comes a week after the company announced a partnership with BetMGM and GVC Holdings, who will implement PlayPause, a digital self-exclusion tool.
Palansky will use his relationships in sports, gaming and media to promote PlayPause.
“This is an incredible opportunity to help rally the gaming and sports industries behind this very important initiative,” said Palansky. “Sports betting and iGaming businesses are spreading rapidly throughout the U.S., and in order to ensure their longevity, it is imperative that all stakeholders have their responsible gaming initiatives accommodate the modern habits of those users they aim to protect.”
