Janine Robinson, Director of RGC, believes that the consumer's mental health, which is being influenced by technology, could be protected, if the user is more familiar with how to gamble, responsibly. The Canadian gambling council's 35 years of experience in working together with other organisations, to improve the overall gambling experience as well as the player's well-being, will benefit the industry if implemented and understood. The collaboration and availability of these products are hoped to aid and develop healthier gambling and mental wellbeing.
The RGC is a non-profit organisation, in Canada, established to provide gamblers, with the necessary balance, to allow for maximum enjoyment, with a lower risk of overspending and subsequently, becoming an addict. The union between these organisations is directed at adding to the worldwide research and contribution to assist gamblers who have addictive natures and also to educate and assist with the initiative to achieve sustainable success. Once this strategy is understood and practiced, the results will be of mutual benefit to both the users and the entire gambling industry alike.
