The PlayPause solution offers unique protection for the players. The first-of-its-kind solution allows players that have self-excluded to transfer their exclusion when they move from state to state. Furthermore, users can choose to self-exclude across multiple states which prevents them from going to a neighboring state to continue gambling.

The national gambling self-exclusion solution is already well-received and operators such as Entain and BetMGM have already committed to its use. Furthermore, the state regulator in Pennsylvania was the first regulator to deploy the solution.
