Match Fixing

As a result of technological advances and particularly the emergence and growth of the online gambling market, sports betting opportunities have increased dramatically, both in terms of the number of sport events and the number of betting markets available. This diversification of the sports betting offer has caused considerable concern among various stakeholders. It is often argued that some of these new betting options pose inherent threats to the integrity of sports events.

Responsible Gambling

The paper considers the nature and scale of the benefits and costs of gambling, with special reference to machine gaming. Although the industry is argued to be unlikely to have a significant macroeconomic impact, evidence is consistent with it generating considerable benefits to individual (responsible) consumers, whether measured by consumer surplus or through the pattern of responses to a wellbeing question. At the same time, a minority of users of gaming facilities, problem gamblers, appear to make consistently flawed decisions such that those with gambling disorder experience exceptionally low wellbeing. Public policy and regulatory decisions should consider the effects, on the margin, on both the net benefits to recreational gamblers and the net costs to problem gamblers. Many policy decisions may involve a trade-off between the welfare of recreational gamblers and the welfare of problem gamblers. Contemporary interest in targeted policies appears to represent an attempt to avoid the need to confront such a trade-off by searching for policies which are aimed very explicitly at problem gamblers alone.

Responsible Gambling

Face à l’offre illégale grandissante sur Internet et en réponse à une forte demande européenne d’une ouverture de l’offre de jeux à la concurrence, la France a, par la loi du 12 mai 2010, organisé une « ouverture maîtrisée à la concurrence » du marché des jeux d’argent et de hasard (JAH) en ligne dans trois domaines : les paris sportifs, les paris hippiques et le poker. La loi de 2010 oblige tous les opérateurs à prendre différentes mesures pour lutter contre le jeu excessif et promouvoir le « jeu responsable ». Deux ans après la promulgation de la loi, au cours du 4e trimestre 2012, l’Observatoire français des drogues et des toxicomanies (OFDT) et l’Observatoire des jeux (ODJ) ont mené en partenariat deux enquêtes sur ces activités.
