NEW EOGL STUDY ON PROTECTION AGAINST PROBLEM GAMBLING
The European Organization for Gaming Law (EOGL) is happy to present our newly-adopted Study on measures for self-assessment and protection against problem gambling behaviour.
By putting into effect one of the three pillars of our Responsible Gambling Strategy, the aim of this document is to promote an EU-wide Industry dialogue on practical measures to ensure strict protection of consumers and minimize problem gambling, as well as social, economic and psychological harm related with it.
The Study focuses on key practices for a successful customer interaction, based on information and advice, self-protection and self-assessment practices.
Introducing an approach solely focused on the players, the Study provides them with insights on the essence of gambling, its social role, but in the same time on its potentially adverse impact for player’s economic, social and personal welfare.
