  • are the result of public health policy and gaming regulations
  • are taken in order to achieve an objective which is to reduce the risks and crime associated with compulsive gambling.
  • concern all groups that are vulnerable
  • concern any individual affected by the problems that are brought upon by compulsive gambling
  • concern anyone affected by the  gaming industry (gamblers, gaming industry employees, therapists, etc...)
  • are taken based on decisions and actions that have been scientifically proven
  • take in consideration the reasoning of both recreational "fun" gamblers and compulsive gamblers on gaming
  • take in consideration the existing social and economic restraints and also all available resources

The outcome depends solely or partially on pure chance. The most popular forms of gambling and games of chance are

  • lotteries : scratch tickets (real or virtual), and the lottery (instant lottery or delayed daily or weekly lottery)
  • casino gaming : slot machines and table games
  • pari-mutual gambling : horse racing and dog racing, on-track and live off-track betting
  • sports betting : Betting made on sports teams or on animals (horse racing)
  • stock market speculation : the buying and selling of stocks on the stock market
  • all forms of on-line gambling (poker, on-line casino, etc...)
