Responsible Gambling Trust Commissioned Two Phase Research Program for Gambling Behavior
The Responsible Gambling Trust (RGT) has appointed PwC to conduct a two phase research program about remote gambling behavior. The two part research study will explore the behavioral potentials with data from the industry including analytics and mitigates of the potential harm that would be gambling related.
The intentions of the research project is to build on the research into the behaviors from gaming machines in licensed offices that was published by RGT back in December 2014. Chief Executive of the Responsible Gambling Trust, Marc Etches commented,
“RGT is committed to commissioning research not only to understand player behaviour but to improve processes in the industry to mitigate gambling-related harm. We have completed an extensive tender process and have emerged with research partners of the highest calibre. Between them PwC and the Responsible Gambling Council have an extensive understanding of the gambling industry and issues of social impact and I am confident that this work will make a valuable contribution to efforts to minimise gambling-related harm in the remote sector.”
PwC will worth closely with Canada’s Responsible Gambling Council during the first phase to help with understanding the processes that are existent in controlling and minimizing harm. The second phase will analyze industry control and data systems for recommendations of practical applications of minimizations for British consumers.
