Reports from Denmark reveal the Danish Gambling Authority has now updated its anti-problem gambling app MitSpil, which was initially released in 2016. The update can now track playing time and deposits in addition to producing danger level flags based on the ratio of win to lose amounts.
MitSpil v.2 now also prompts players if they delay in updating their statistics, and generates an analysis of the user's playing patterns and behavior.
The app is designed to help players put their gambling in the correct perspective and take responsibility for halting any developing trend toward compulsive gambling that the app identifies. It has been updated following research conducted by the National Problem Gambling Clinic on mobile gambling.
