BETSSON STEPS UP FOR RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING
Swedish online gambling firm offers research scholarships
Kudos to Swedish online betting group Betsson, which has stepped up to contribute to the real need for research into the impact and consequences of problem gambling in the industry.
The company has launched a scholarship for problem gambling research in its native Sweden. The scholarships, each amounting to 15 000 SEK, will be awarded twice a year by a panel of experts knowledgeable in the field of gambling, from a list of candidates pre-selected by the respective student faculty. Betsson has previously used the services of the G4 for responsible gambling guidance.
