  • Funding Research: Investing $20 million in independent research on responsible gaming.
  • Raising Awareness: Educating both the industry and players about responsible gaming practices.
  • Setting Standards: Developing best practices for responsible gambling.
  • Creating Resources: Establishing a central place for reliable information and certifications related to responsible gaming.

Why This Matters

This is the first time a group has focused solely on responsible gambling in the online space. While other organizations help problem gamblers, ROGA wants to prevent problems from happening in the first place.

Impact on Online Casinos

Although ROGA's main focus is sports betting, its work will likely have a positive impact on online casinos as well. Making gambling safer is a good thing for everyone involved.
