In this episode, Cameron Conn discusses GameSecure, the newest addition to the world of responsible gaming. It’s a way to protect self-excluded individuals before they can even get on the casino floor – both in brick and mortar places and online spaces.
Before starting GameSecure, Conn worked for fifteen years in the industry; his impressive career includes casino design, gaming operations, customer development, revenue generation, and iGaming. In the Vancouver market, Conn organized responsible gaming programs and educated industry members on the “services and processes that would become the gold operating standard within the market.” He named Bencon Technologies, Inc. after each of his parents.
Conn graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
