Dylan Slaney, SVP Casino at SG Digital, believes it is more important than ever for operators to improve their online offering amid the global outbreak of COVID-19.
Speaking with Gambling Insider for the Roundtable feature in its upcoming May/June magazine, Slaney explained what a strong online segment could offer land-based operators during this testing time.
He said: “For land-based casinos in particular, it’s more important than ever to have a strong online offering that allows their customer base to access fun and engaging content in a responsible way, especially at a time when they’re looking for relief from a difficult period.
“Additionally, we will look to support operators in any way we can, especially with regard to new responsible gaming measures they may wish to put in place in light of COVID-19.”
Slaney also explained how the coronavirus pandemic has affected SG Digital’s operations specifically.
He said: “First and foremost, we’re protecting the wellbeing of our staff by adopting a remote work policy and procedures including social distancing.
“We’re also going above and beyond to continue providing our partners with services to keep their customers engaged.
“We’re sourcing even more content to our OpenSports and OpenGaming portfolios, including additional esports and virtual sports which are enjoying a surge of interest right now.”
