Not a Game: A call for effective protection from the harms of gambling

Summary:

As it is the responsibility of the gambling regulator to protect consumers from disproportionate harm, this report focuses on affordability checks as a targeted measure to protect the most vulnerable. The CSJ believes that these checks are an effective solution to address gambling-related harm at its source. Unlike paternalistic regulation, affordability checks are an evidence-based, data-driven, safe, accurate, and practical solution to protect the most vulnerable. It is imperative that we take this step to tackle the egregious gambling-related harms in society.
