The Institute for the Regulation of Gambling (IFGR) launches a Responsible Gambling Project in the Czech Republic.
IFGR unites 35 gambling companies, which accounts for 95% of the legal gambling market in the Czech Republic.
The goal of the project is to preserve the enjoyment of gambling by making it a safe pastime for gamblers, not a risk.
It also aims to support the prevention of risky gambling, educate players and the general public on the principles of responsible gambling, support cooperation with professional organizations in the field of education and research, and implement a software tool to identify risky betting-related behavior.
Operators of gambling in the Czech Republic are already obliged to comply with a number of legal measures that contribute to the protection of gamblers, however, these rules are not always effective and cannot respond in time to changes in gamblers’ behavior and offer effective assistance.
This responsible gambling project brings together competing gambling operators such as Tipsport, Fortuna, Chance and Sazka.
