New Jersey Responsible Gaming Report Released

New Jersey has had its latest responsible gaming report published by The Rutgers Center for Gambling Studies, noting the amount of punters who limited deposits, set loss limits, and self-exclusions across the Garden State.

The report covers both land and online betting in New Jersey, and the report also posts suggestions about how to better display and present responsible gaming to players, while also presenting standardized methods in which online operators could promote responsible gaming measures.

Some of the figures revealed revealed by the study include:

  • Deposit limiting was the most popular choice and was used by 1.3 percent of players at 6,851;

  • 73 percent of those using the deposit limited facility later elected to change their limits;

  • Just over 53 percent of players who set loss limits returned to revise these limits later;

  • Only 26 percent of players who set limits were online casino punters;

  • The three day cooling off period service was used by 5,465 online gamblers or 1.04 percent;

  • One year and five year exclusions from all New Jersey online gambling sites were not used much - 441 players or 0.08 percent for one year and 314 players or 0,06 percent for five years.

  • Overall average age for males using the responsible gambling facilities was 37 years, whilst for females this figure was 47 years.
