ICRG Receives $200,000 Grant From Caesars Foundation

The International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG) announced that it has received a $200,000 grant from the Caesars Foundation in support of the organization’s research and education on gambling disorder and responsible gambling.

“Caesars has supported ICRG from day one and has literally helped create the field of study on gambling addiction and responsible gambling,” said ICRG President Arthur Paikowsky. “We are deeply grateful for their continuing support of efforts to effectively prevent and treat gambling disorder.”

Since its establishment in 1996, the ICRG has become a prominent funding source in problem gambling research, yielding hundreds of articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. The donation will also help fund several programs designed to educate treatment providers, responsible gambling professionals, regulators and public policy makers about gambling disorder and responsible gambling.

ICRG-funded research has informed the industry about the health risks of casino employees, created the only research-based website on college gambling, and launched a national campaign to make parents and teachers aware of youth gambling. Projects currently in process are evaluating the responsible gambling tool of self-imposed limits on time and money spent gambling and the national impact of sports wagering.
