PointsBet, NCPG and MACGH Released Problem Gambling Survey Results
Research launched by Australian sportsbook operator PointsBet and the National Council of Problem Gambling and Massachusetts Council on Gaming and Health published its findings.
The initiative focused on responsible gambling decision-making for online gambling operators was launched by PointsBet in collaboration with the NCPG and MACGH in July this year. The survey was issued to attendees of the National Conference on Gambling Addiction & Responsible Gifting 2022. The results are expected to spark dialogue amongst operators, regulators, treatment providers, researchers and problem gambling advocates.
The event aimed to unite gambling industry representatives, government officials, researchers and healthcare specialists. The survey revealed that most of those who participated opted to share information about support and availability of resources. Almost a third of the survey respondents were treatment providers and close to a fifth were recovering gambling addicts.
