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


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.
