As one of the biggest gambling companies in the world, GVC knows that it pays to invest in responsible gambling. The company who owns Party Casino and co-own playMGM as always promoted staying in control. But now it seems that they’re taking the prevention of gambling addiction one step further. And they’re doing so by launching many initiatives that will focus on this matter of public safety.
The first initiative kicked off on September 2019 with the launch of their Global Foundation. The Global Foundation focuses mostly on US projects and works closely with Harvard Medical School and the National Council on Problem Gaming (NCPG) to name a few. And the second preventative measure will see the launch of many educational programs in collaboration with the NCPG and Seton Hall Law School.

Knowledge is power
Online gambling is, indeed, a new phenomenon in America. However, gambling as a whole is almost as old as the world. The first form of gambling was reported in roman time. And back then they acknowledge that the dice game offered on special occasion had an addictive nature. So as you can see, problem gambling isn’t a new phenomenon. And there’s much to learn on the subject as well.
For this reason, GVC Holdings, in collaboration with Seton Hall Law, opted to train tomorrow’s leaders in gambling compliance and integrity too. The first of its kind educational Bootcamp will take place in March 2020. The goal of the project is to set high standards and best practices that will govern the industry.
Helping those who served our country
GVC’s Global Foundation has several goals as you can see. But its mission is mostly to keep gambling as safe as possible. For this reason, the organisation will support military personnel (active and veteran), and they’ll do so by launching an educational program which will address challenges this group faces. This program will start in the new year as well.
All and all, GVC and its partners hope to maintain the integrity of gambling. But also to set guidelines that other companies will follow as the industry grows. And that’s a commendable mission, don’t you agree?
