ICE 2024’s Consumer Protection Zone Raises £41,100 for Charities

The Consumer Protection Zone (CPZ) at ICE 2024 has successfully raised £41,100, which will be split between two charities: the International Centre for Responsible Gambling (ICRG) and Betblocker. This brings the total amount raised by the CPZ over the past four years to over £225,000.

During a donation ceremony at the CPZ, ICRG and Betblocker each received £20,500. The funds were raised with the help of Light and Wonder, Flutter, Betsson Group, IGT, Novomatic, Neccton, and Playtech.

Ewa Bakun, Clarion Gaming’s director of industry insight and engagement, expressed her satisfaction with the amount raised and highlighted the importance of supporting these charities through the Consumer Protection Zone. She hopes to continue these efforts in the future and raise even more funds for deserving causes.

Betblocker founder and trustee Duncan Garvie expressed his surprise and gratitude upon receiving the generous donation. He emphasized the impact it will have on the development of a new timer feature they are planning to implement. Garvie also noted the exposure gained from being associated with ICE and considered it a significant boost for their charity.

ICRG President Arthur Paikowsky, who also received an award as Clarion Gaming’s Charity of the Year, was honored to be named as such. He expressed his surprise and gratitude for the £20,500 donation, emphasizing the significance of the funds for their small organization. Paikowsky mentioned their ongoing studies and research collaborations, including one with Harvard Medical, and stated that the donation would greatly support their research efforts.

Overall, the donation ceremony at ICE 2024’s Consumer Protection Zone was a success, benefiting two important charities in the gaming industry.
