We wanted the RGC to explore how gambling relates to other online activities, helping Playtech to improve how we support digital and mental wellbeing, as well as safer gambling.The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) would like to see the online gambling industry have a shared sense and “culture of responsibility,” where both staff and player initiatives reflect player well-being, a recent whitepaper reveals.
The RGC is a non-profit organization that specializes in safeguarding in the gambling industry to promote the health of people and communities who might be affected by problem gambling. The RGC is based in Canada, but works globally throughout the industry.
The RGC report, Gambling Digital Tools Across The Player Spectrum, is an in-depth review of how responsible gambling tools are used throughout the online gambling industry.
It also includes recommendations on what the industry could do to shore up RG offerings. One key highlight: Online gambling operators should link “staff and player initiatives” to the uptake of responsible gambling efforts.
The report also highlights the ecosystem of digital gambling tools, reviews case studies of practical tools, discusses barriers of entry and areas of improvement, and outlines ways to improve responsible gambling efforts throughout the industry.
