Findings Will Help Industry Stakeholders

By funding the ICRG research initiative, Playtech says this action underlines its commitment to responsible gambling and providing a safe environment for its players, including those from marginalized communities.

The findings from the research study will give stakeholders, including regulators and gaming operators, a chance to understand the areas that most affect underserved groups in the US. It is hoped the results will also help the stakeholders in the gaming industry formulate policies to help the identified communities.

We are immensely grateful for Playtech’s donation, which marks a significant step towards improving our understanding of gambling-related health issues among indigenous communities in the U.S. and Canada. This contribution will greatly enhance the effectiveness of responsible gambling measures, and Playtech’s commitment to this cause is commendable and will undoubtedly make a substantial impact in the field of gambling research.
