PlayGen: Anti Money Laundering Serious Games

Serious Games immerse players in the criminal underworld to raise awareness of money laundering


Via: PlayGen - Anti Money Laundering Game

Anti Money Laundering by PlayGen is a game that immerses players in the criminal underworld to raise awareness of money laundering and the preventative steps they can take in their day-to-day work.

Anti-money laundering (AML) training is increasingly important to banks, building societies and other financial businesses because of current anti-terrorism measures and the introduction of the Proceeds of Crime Act (2002).

However, traditional methods of training using e-learning are boring and fail to bring the issue to life for employees.

PlayGen developed an immersive learning game where players experience how money laundering supports financial crime. After playing the game, they will be able to describe the steps they should take to understand their own responsibilities and safeguard the reputation of their firm.

The learner takes a number of different roles in order to detect and understand Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crime. Descending into the criminal underworld as a secret agent brings danger and intrigue to a training topic that can often be dry and boring!



During the course of the game, players will meet various characters who give their side of the story. Players must use all their wits to make decisions on what actions, if any, they should take. Moving across the different scenarios the learner gets the opportunity to challenge others, make decisions, and best of all have fun whilst learning!

The more the player begins to understand the more points they earn. Any mistakes will have directed feedback to guide understanding.
