Playtech Backs ICRG Research on Gambling Impact in U.S. and Canada

Playtech is proud to announce its support for the International Center for Responsible Gaming’s (ICRG) research program. Established as a global pioneer in gambling disorder research and education, ICRG has been awarding research grants since 1996 through stringent competitions.

Under the supervision of an independent Scientific Advisory Board comprising leading addiction specialists, ICRG has recently invited applicants to engage in research focused on the impact of gambling on under-served groups in the U.S. or Canada. This strategic initiative aims to allocate funding for high-quality research in this vital area.

Playtech is actively contributing to this endeavor by financing research aimed at understanding the impact of gambling on under-served groups in the U.S. and Canada. The findings of this research will provide valuable insights for researchers, policymakers, regulators, and the industry to strengthen and enhance player protection measures for these specific groups.

Arthur Paikowsky, ICRG President said; “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.”

Jonathan Doubilet, VP U.S Business Operations at Playtech commented; “Playtech is committed to creating a safer gambling environment and is a strong supporter of research that helps reduce gambling related harm and enhance player protection measures. We are delighted to be able to support the ICRG’s research that will help advance player protection for vulnerable groups in the U.S. and Canada.”
