The (NCRG) National Center for Responsible Gaming is a organization that promotes a positive, mature attitude toward Online Gaming. It is very important to have this group and there should be more out there like it because the small percentage of gamblers who do develop an addiction towards gambling give the gambling market a bad name. Responsible governments could encourage the development of responsible approaches to gaming the same way other good behaviors are promoted.
It has been said that gambler addicts are the same as alcoholics, drug addicts, people who eat too much, even watch too much television, in the way that they are trying to escape stress in their life or trying to escape from pain in their life. If this is true, then these people need help and no casino wants to be a part of that, so the end result is we need to figure out a way to help them. This is why NCRG came to be and is trying to create a more responsible gaming experience for everyone who chooses to play.
There are more responsible gamblers out there than there are addicts, however, the right thing to do is help those who have a tendency to get out of control while gambling. It takes friends and family to see that someone has problem and it is their responsibility to step up and take notice, to do something. When a gambler who has a problem runs out of money they can’t just stop, they start taking it from other people, usually family, then friends. So the family need to pay attention to where the money is going.
One truth about gambling is that it is not going to go away, it will always be around and if the government want to take it away then it will just go underground. This is why we need to take a positive approach and teach people how to gamble responsibly. A positive, constructive approach will make it more likely that people will manage their money while gambling, start with a budget and know when to stop. Good Luck.
