Punto Sicuro


Punto Sicuro

The “Punto Sicuro” project is a system set-up with the joint aims of preventing pathological gambling (or PGD - Pathological Gambling Disorder), identifying players who may be at risk and referring them to specialized centres for treatment and contributing to initiatives to counteract illicit activities such as money laundering, usury and criminal infiltration.

Three of the Group’s largest gaming halls obtained Punto Sicuro certification, in recognition of the fact that they apply the principles of “Sustainable Gaming”, or gaming that emphasises the entertainment aspects of the activity, counterbalancing, as far as possible, any negative externalities. The principles, which have been grouped together in a Code that has been validated by the Psychiatric Consultation Department of the Gemelli University Hospital in Rome, have demonstrated their objective worth in preventing, identifying and containing the risk of PGD; the principles range from dedicating special attention to weaker categories (those aged under 21 and over 65) to the creation of a “Player Service Charter”, from maintaining a Gaming Hall Register in which to record potentially anomalous situations to being able to identify signals that give an early warning of “behaviour at risk”, as well as the related management of crisis situations.

The certification is issued by an independent third-party body (Rina Services S.p.A.), which verified the staff training and the compliance with the Code requirements, through interviews and inspections both scheduled and unscheduled.
