The range and the accessibility of games and gambling have changed. Previous mechanical and electronic gaming and gambling devices have now been superseded by a range of new online games, which are increasingly available on portable and handheld gaming devices. This provides more opportunities for offering entertainment and stimulus through games and gambling.
However, experience indicates that increased gaming and gambling propositions and accessibility can also lead to greater problems both for the player and for society. The Action plan to prevent problem gaming and problem gambling is a continuation of the action plan set out in 2005 and aims to reduce current problems and prevent future problems for the individual and for society.
