In the lead-up to Safer Gambling Week 2023 in Europe, and SBC’s Player Protection Day, iGaming Daily embarked upon a whistle-stop tour of the global gaming world to look at player protection talking points in Europe, the USA and Latin America.
Martyn Elliott returns to the hosts chair for this one, and is joined by SBC Americas editor Jessica Welman to give the US perspective, SBC News senior journalist Ted Orme-Claye bringing the European viewpoint, and Head of B2B Media LatAm Lucía Mouriño to give us the view from Latin America.
Firstly, from a US perspective, Jessica Welman gave an update on how the attitudes have changed surrounding responsible gaming since the introduction of advertising into the regulated states in the US;
“(On whether attitudes have changed) I would say it’s a mix of yes and no, is there a general belief in society that there are too many commercials? That’s absolutely happening, I think the difference is the way you are seeing it play out. Whereas in most European countries, gaming is regulated at the national level, we regulate state by state, so you’re really seeing certain states take action.. We are seeing lots of regulators stepping up and making changes and fine tuning the regulations that they have.”
