Responsible Gambling Project in Romania
Pathological gambling represents the end spectrum of gambling behaviors. This behavior affects the gambler’s family and friends and the most obvious consequence of gambling problems is a poor private economy. In Romania we introduced “Responsible Gaming” project which was at first developed by Novomatic Romania, further being taken over and extended at the industry level, through Romslot – The Slot Organizer’s Association in Romania. The project’s plan of action is to describe and assess the need to prevent problem gambling, the need for treatment and the need to provide the problem gambler and his family with information and psychological treatment.
