Epic Risk Management Joins The National Council On Problem Gambling

Epic Risk Management will work with the National Council On Problem Gambling in order to help at-risk players in the United States, both companies said yesterday.

Epic Risk Management brings six years of experience working with over 125,000 people with gambling addiction or at risk of gambling addiction in Europe. They hope they can bring their experience to the United States where online gambling is much newer.

“Gambling is growing fast in the US across a number of states,” said Epic CEO Paul Buck For the majority, gambling will remain an enjoyable form of entertainment; but for a small but significant percentage, it will lead to problems that can be catastrophic for the individual, their families and for organizations.

“I am delighted to announce our collaboration with the National Council on Problem Gambling that will ensure that fewer people reach the edge of the cliff with gambling problems and, those that do, have a fit for purpose and coordinated pathway of support.”

The NCPG also seemed pleased with the announcement.

“We are so pleased to welcome EPIC as a member of NCPG,” said the Council’s Executive Director Keith Whyte. “They provide best-in-class programs and training in the UK and across Europe and we are eager to learn from their experience and share our insights into the unique US gambling market and the healthcare system.”

Epic hopes to use its vast experience in Europe to help the NCPG identify people with potential gambling problems in the United States. They hope to stop people before they develop a gambling addiction. That way people can notice they have a potential problem, address it, and then come back to gaming.

Gambling addiction affects a small number of people but can be seen as a blight on the online gambling industry. This collaboration should work together to help curb that.

As gambling continues to grow in the United States regulators are going to have to reach out to the companies in Europe who know how to identify problem gamblers and seek out their help.
