The International Centre for Responsible Gaming (ICRG) has announced that it has received a $600,000 donation from Bally’s Corporation to support multi-year, cutting-edge scientific research on gambling among young adults and the usage and effectiveness of responsible gambling tools.

“With this grant, Bally’s Corporation has taken a giant stride toward understanding the health risks of young adult gamblers and improving the effectiveness of existing responsible gambling tools. The ICRG salutes Bally’s Corporation for making such a huge impact on the field of gambling studies,” said ICRG President Arthur Paikowsky.

The ICRG will invite scientists from around the world to apply for these grants in a rigorous competition that ensures funding only the highest quality research. The ICRG will also sponsor programming that will extend the research findings of these projects beyond academia and provide guidelines to the gaming industry for effective responsible gambling strategies.

“We take seriously our responsibility to educate the public, including young adult gamblers, and our employees about responsible gaming, Bally’s is committed to this work.

The donation will also help fund several programmes designed to educate treatment providers, responsible gambling professionals, regulators and public policy makers about gambling disorder and responsible gambling.
