PointsBet and National Council on Problem Gambling launch research initiative
PointsBet will work with the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) on a responsible gambling research initiative. The research will focus on how operators, governments, and stakeholders respond to evidence of problem gambling.
The initiative will set out various scenarios, in which a fictitious online betting customer demonstrates potentially problematic gambling behaviour. The cases will offer into how effectively US gambling institutions implement responsible gaming policies.
