|Online gambling is not normally associated with creating problem gamblers. The vast majority of problem gamblers gamble in terrestrial casinos, on slot machines, or offline on sports. But just because online gambling is not the major contributor to problem gambling, it doesn't mean that problem gambling can be ignored online. |
The leaders in the online gaming industry have always been encouraged to take a proactive role in identifying and counseling online compulsive gamblers. The most recent major online casino group to introduce counseling and advisory facilities to its online casino is the Trident Entertainment Group which owns and operates King Neptune's Casino, the Trident Lounge VegasUSA online casino in.
The group has taken on an in-house advisor to help anyone at any of their three casinos who they believe they may have a gambling problem.
'I understand the problems around compulsive and binge gambling because I am a recovering compulsive gambler. I am available to communicate in complete confidentiality about any issues players may have regarding gambling' says Simon, who will be providing individual expert counseling as requested on the group's sites.
