Assessment of online games design changes
Increased trust in gambling providers
The level of trust in the gambling industry has increased amongst gamblers, though it cannot be attributed to these changes introduced towards the end of 2021. This outcome is a potential long-term consequence.
Another potential positive long-term outcome associated with improved information provision and reduced harms because of gambling products is increased trust amongst gamblers in the gambling industry.
As reported in our quarterly telephone survey, the level of trust in gambling amongst those that reported gambling in the past 12 months increased significantly in 2021, though the proportion that do trust the industry is still low. The observed increase in 2021 cannot be attributed to the game design changes which were only introduced towards the end of 2021. This outcome is a potential long-term consequence and attribution to any single factor is always likely to be difficult.
