E-Wallet DANA introduces new “Gamer’s Protection” with Igloo

Indonesia’s e-wallet DANA expanded its offerings by providing insurance protection against health risks from gaming, in cooperation with Singapore-headquartered Igloo . This is the fintech’s second insurance product.

The offering comes after the launch of Electronic Gadget Insurance, launched by DANA and Igloo in October 2021.

Underwritten by Jagadiri (PT Central Asia Financial), plans start from Rp1,000 and a maximum of Rp1,000,000 for cardiac arrest or carpal tunnel syndrome diseases. Users can purchase the protection for themselves or their children in the DANA app.

“We are happy to work with DANA again to offer insurance protection to mobile phone users. This is in line with our commitment to driving digital adoption of financial services amongst Indonesian customers and we look forward to adding more insurance solutions through the partnership. During the pandemic, we have seen the gaming community grow and Indonesians are now spending more time on their mobile phones. On average, Indonesians devote approximately 8.5 hours per week to gaming. In the long run, this can lead to health problems such as carpal tunnel.” – Novasta Novasta, Country Manager of Igloo in Indonesia.

“We are aware that the game is growing rapidly, even contributing to the creative economy sub-sector in the country. Therefore, we are not only focusing on providing easy digital transactions for game purchases, but we are also taking part in protecting gamers from health risks from gaming by providing insurance available on Igloo.” – Rangga Wiseno, Chief of Product DANA Indonesia.

In Indonesia, aside from DANA, Igloo has partnered with e-logistics platform Ritase, e-commerce company Bukalapak, home and business appliances solution provider Modena and freight logistics marketplace Kargo Technologies. Regionally, Igloo also works with food delivery company foodpanda, e-commerce platform Shopee, and on-demand and hotel management platform RedDoorz.
