Playing with circumspection: From delight to danger
The term 'gaming' means many different things. There are many types of game. At Playsponsible, we focus on games of chance in the form of lotteries and the like. The decision on the outcome of a game of chance is solely or primarily dependent on luck. Lotteries are a game of chance where players put in a stake and the game operator offers the prospect of a win.
Alongside winning, though, a game of chance is also associated with risks and dangers. That's why we're committed to measures to protect players and young people. Games of chance are not directed at children and everyone involved must act responsibly.
What are the risks?
- Why do people play games of chance? – It's not just the prospect of a win. People play games of chance for other reasons, too.
- Player protection measures. - Player protection is a core component of gambling and aims to minimise the risks of problem gambling behaviour.
- Youth protection measures – games of chance are not child's play. That's why youth protection is crucial for protecting minors from the risks of gambling.
