Proposals for Responsible Gambling

Proposals for Responsible Gambling

The social hazard of gambling can be evidenced by a recent prison research where a third of female inmates and at least one-fourth of male inmates admitted to have gambling problems at the time of their convictions. The surveys conducted in prison facilities are just one of the many gambling related problems that can be pinpointed. For this reason, gambling provisions should be reframed and recognize further what social harm it creates. Proposals have been made to promote responsible gambling. Among them are the creation of different regulations on different gambling classes, the stoppage of casino growth, the limitation of the spread of gaming machines to only nine in new sites, the replacement of gambling authority by a commission, the involvement of communities themselves in the licensing of new and current gambling machines, the prerequisite to develop policies that would reduce any gambling related harm and the obligation for gambling operators to shoulder expenses for gambling problems.

But, the question is, are these proposals enough to provide real and substantial protection? The weakness of all these proposals and current protection provisions is that no proposal have yet been made that directly guide gambling decisions especially on new gambling mechanism. These new gambling tactics are the ones that are growing and pose the greatest threats. These new gambling mechanisms not only pose social hazards but also it's a new lifestyle risk, whose consequences maybe as adverse as alcoholism.

Moreover, the following adverse effects and issues of gambling and gambling-related problems have not yet resolved by the proposals mentioned earlier:

� Women are increasingly seeking help with problems related to gambling. � The exposure gambling to youth, which indicates that more and more youth from ages 16 to 24 are gambling their money away with these new games, especially slot machines. � The ever converting value of gambling from a plain leisure activity to fulfillment, to socialize, to support a noble cause, and escapism to trauma and poverty. � The hazardous effects of gambling in such a way that pathological gambling may be worse than any other addiction because of its destructiveness to individuals, personal economics, family and community. � Gambling problems not only affects one's life, it has its adverse impact on others, both socially and financially. With monetary woes, gamblers lose control of their lives and their families'

It should be further proposed that communities already hit by many gambling problems become involved in the levels pertaining to policy development, licensures and regulations, distribution, and management of all gambling facilities. They are those who already know the consequences of the gambling problems and should know better, and not some public official who puts up a face of trying mildly to solve gambling effects.
