The organization will examine the long-term effectiveness of self-exclusion.

GeoComply, a fraud and risk solutions provider, has agreed to finance a two-year research project for the International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG). Through the grant, the ICRG will study self-exclusion programs used by both land-based and online gambling operators and their effectiveness long-term.

The ICRG has compiled a list of potential topics for the study, which includes the most effective long-term self-exclusion form, considering what criteria is needed for self-excluded people to return, ideal times for self-exclusion and if the term itself stigmatizes people and prohibits them from enrolling on other sites.

The organization plans to publish its results in October 2025.

ICRG President Arthur B. Paikowsky commented on the growing demand for this research.

He said: “There is a necessity to determine whether enhancing these programs would result in more customer participation and whether this would be beneficial.” 

GeoComply Solutions is globally known for its Ground Truth Geolocation data platform, which services millions of devices around the world through its proprietary system.

The company provides geolocation for anti-fraud solutions to a variety of markets. Its solutions are tailored for the gaming industry, as well as for media, entertainment, financial services and for cryptocurrency.

GeoComply Co-Founder and CEO Anna Sainsbury discussed the company’s commitment to responsible gaming and its desire to fund the ICRG’s ongoing research.

She commented: “We have been committed to responsible gambling initiatives since forming GeoComply over a decade ago.

“We need more data to support the industry’s actions around RG, and I am really happy that we can support the ICRG’s research in this important area.”
