Agency Receives Grant from BetMGM to Study Problem Gambling

BetMGM donated a $180,000 grant to the International Center for Responsible Gambling. The grant, announced November 22, is earmarked to study the relationship between advertising and problem gambling.

“Findings from this evidence-based research study will allow us to better identify potential risks and guide best practices for the gaming industry,” said ICRG President Arthur Paikowsky in a statement.

BetMGM Senior Manager of Responsible Gaming Richard Taylor said such analysis is important in an effort to create programs to deal with such problems, according to CDC Gaming Reports.

“This groundbreaking research will not only provide valuable learnings to BetMGM but will also serve as a guide for the industry and key stakeholders,” Taylor said.

Since its inception in 1996, the ICRG has overseen or published a number of studies on problem gambling.
