The gambling industry today faces a dilemma: how do we continue to grow while ensuring the safety and protection of our players? Plenty of research has examined what works and doesn’t work to reduce harm, but knowledge gaps still exits. In this session, three experts will outline the findings from their review papers and highlight the current state of knowledge in three key areas: Products and Environment, Player Safeguards, and Responsible Gambling Culture. This session will set the stage for discussions and interaction throughout the next day and a half.
