<b>Worldwide Support, Ltd. Announces Unveiling of Player Protection Program</b>
October 7, 2002 - In an attempt to stand behind the integrity of the gaming operators that have licensed software through the company, Worldwide Support, Ltd., the exclusive licensor of the FutureBet gaming system, is pleased to announce the implementation of its player protection program.
The program, which is truly an industry first, provides customers of any certified Worldwide Support licensee with the peace of mind that Worldwide Support ( [www.worldwidesupport.com
] ) provides from a protection policy on each player account. Of course, this program supplements the ongoing commitment of the licensee itself to provide each customer with a dependable, financial environment. However, in the event that the gaming operator elected to close its business, for whatever reason, Worldwide Support would ensure that every customer of that operator is paid the particular amount owed to them (up to a maximum of $5,000 USD).
While the company does not automatically assign a “certified” status to each licensee, operators covered by the protection program will each be validated with a Worldwide Support “PPP” (Player Protection Program) icon on the bottom of their website’s main page (additional confirmation can be provided via the below email address). The company's goal is to certify every licensee as the process provides for a system of checks and balances between licensor and licensee that was not previously in place. One such example of this system is the ability for Worldwide Support to restrict a certified licensee from offering player bonuses deemed to be excessive.
While most gaming software providers, such as Worldwide Support, are not gaming operators themselves, the applications and products that they license serve as the foundation of the gaming operations of those who utilize such software. As such management is hopeful that the player protection program, which took effect October 1st, 2002, will become a trend-setting idea among software providers within the online gaming industry.
