Svenska Spel launched new online poker tool

(Sweden).- Svenska Spel is now launching yet another tool to help players to pace themselves when playing poker at Spelstatus shows players how much they have won or lost on total in poker since starting to play the game at the company’s website.

There’s one common misconception, particularly among younger players. They overestimate their own skill and think they control the game themselves. A lot of players reckon themselves to be pretty talented – they’ve broken even, or maybe even made a bit of a profit. But now just a single click will show you, in black and white, exactly how much you’ve won or lost,” says Mikael Franzén, Business Area Manager at Svenska Spel.

“This kind of information is absolutely vital as it provides players with hard facts. We’ve been wanting to implement this option for a while, and the fact that it’s now up and running is to be applauded,” says Thomas Nilsson, Chairman of the Swedish Gaming Institute.

Spelstatus will also report the total time which each player spends playing poker at “Spelstatus is yet another tool which we’re providing to help players to keep tabs on how much they play. Showing them profits or losses accumulated and the total time they spend on poker on our site will create transparency and hopefully lead to more people reflecting on how much they play,” says Mikael Franzén.

Another new feature is that responsible gaming information will be displayed in a pop-up window once a month when players log in.

“This information relates mainly to the unique tools we offer for poker and for gambling in general. We want people to have fun when they use our website, and for that they need clear information and functions that make them feel secure when they play,” says Roger Levy, Head of Sales for Svenska Spel poker.
