RG Plus: Playtech Collaboration

Strengthening industry insights through collaboration to inform and advance safer gambling, mental health, and digital wellbeing.

RG Plus and Playtech are collaborating to examine the links between mental health, digital wellbeing, and gambling.

One of the first examinations of safer gambling alongside digital wellbeing, this collaboration aims to help people live healthier online lives, advance safer gambling, and improve the way stakeholders in online entertainment sectors – regulators, industry, non-profits, researchers, treatment providers, etc. – work together to support people who use digital platforms.

RG Plus will use a combination of research, evaluation, and thought leadership to lead and execute projects on gambling, digital wellbeing, and mental health.

  • Supporting the Digital Wellbeing of Young People Through Purposeful Collaboration

    Various sectors are focusing on supporting the wellbeing of young people – both adolescents and young adults – in digital spaces. However, many sectors are operating with limited insights and resources, leaving gaps in knowledge and support across online spaces.

    A stakeholder insights project was undertaken and designed by RG Plus to address key gaps by answering the following question: How can stakeholders build purposeful collaborations to advance the digital wellbeing of young people 12-24 years, specifically as it relates to online entertainment – gaming, gambling, and social media use?

    The resulting report outlines initial answers to key questions in order to develop a guide for building purposeful collaborations to support the digital wellbeing of young people. It was developed using the insights generously provided by a diverse set of experienced and knowledgeable stakeholders – 33 people representing 27 organizations – in a series of group discussions and one-on-one interviews. The findings from the report were discussed in a stakeholder roundtable with contributors to the report and organizations with an interest in collaboration, safer gambling, digital wellbeing, and mental health. It is our hope that this endeavour will inspire positive collaboration and innovation among stakeholders in digital entertainment fields and inform practical action across sectors for supporting the digital wellbeing of young people.
