The International Center for Responsible Gaming has received a $600,000 donation from Bally’s Corporation to fund research into gambling among young adults.


Centre president, Arthur Paikowsky, said: “With this grant, Bally’s has taken a giant stride toward understanding the health risks of young adult gambler and improving the effectiveness of existing responsible gambling tools.”

The ICRG will invite scientists from around the world to apply for these grants in a rigorous competition that ensures funding only the highest quality research.

The ICRG will also sponsor programming that will extend the research findings of these projects beyond academia and provide guidelines to the gaming industry for effective responsible gambling strategies.
