The perceived effectiveness of 45 responsible gambling (RG) features in relation to 20 distinct gambling type games were examined. Participants were 61 raters from seven countries, including responsible gambling experts (n = 22), treatment providers (n = 19) and recovered problem gamblers (n = 20). Overall, player control over personal limits were favoured more than gaming company controlled limits, although mandatory use of such features was often recommended. The study found that online games had the possibility to provide many more RG features than traditional (offline games). The findings draw together knowledge about the effectiveness of RG features for specific game types. This should aid objective, cost effective, evidence based decisions on which RG features to include in an RG strategy, according to a specific portfolio 1 of games. The findings of this study are available via a web based tool, known as the Responsible Gambling Knowledge Centre (RGKC).
