Svenska Spel supports new problem gambling research programs

8 Jul 2019

Svenska Spel Gambling ResearchThe Research Council of Svenska Spel is supporting five new research programs that are aiming at countering gambling addiction, since it officially confirmed that it will be issuing total grants of SEK5m (£425,471).

The state-owned Swedish company is actually planning on issuing grants to three out of the five aforementioned programs one of which set to focus on dealing with gambling addiction among players that are into Swedish ice hockey. One of the other programs will be aimed at developing an innovative internet-oriented treatment towards gambling addiction and the third will be focused on investigating the association between gambling issues and trauma in women.

The Chairman of the Research Council, Sara Lindholm, stated that she is absolutely satisfied with the selection of those specific programs, since all of them have the potential of contributing towards the enhancement of knowledge regarding gambling addiction.

Since its establishment back in 2010, Svenska Spel’s Research Council is tasked with searching for ways of boosting problem gambling awareness and with the creation of prevention actions. Furthermore, it has been tasked both with assessing and with granting applications for research financing based on scientific quality and societal applicability.

The Sustainability Manager of Svenska Spel, Scarlett Roa, said that her company makes a great effort so as to provide players with safe games and safer gaming environments. She also stated that in order to achieve this, it is absolutely essential to support the constant research. In addition to that, she mentioned that through the Research Council, they are striving to enhance the knowledge and the understanding of gambling-related issues.
