The National Council on Problem Gambling recently released a report outlining the potency of regulations and standards placed on online gambling by the seven states that offer iGaming services to customers.
Out of the seven states, Pennsylvania tied with two other states for the best regulations and safety practices when it comes to preventing problem gambling on their websites and apps. Delaware, Michigan, Nevada, and West Virginia all received below-standard grades. The NCPG wrote that safety regulations in those four states “do not mandate operators provide players with sufficient responsible gambling protections.”
Pennsylvania’s iGaming market opened in June 2019. The NCPG report shows state regulators have successfully prevented problem gambling on a wide scale by implementing guidelines that help players receive all the information they need before making a wager.
