The Superior Council of Health warns gamers against gambling-related disorders

Video games are a very accessible way to have fun, especially during confinement. Although only about three percent of gamers lose control over their behavior when playing video games, there are several risks, such as family or school problems.

The CSS emphasizes in its report that parents are an important partner in prevention and that they must be better educated and supported. Developing regulations within the family home is an option, but alternatives to the game must also be offered.

Finally, the Council points to the need for a clear separation between games and online betting. The border is sometimes blurred. Bets on popular games involving minors should not be allowed, concludes the report.
