bet-at-hometakes into account the causes of problematic gaming behaviour. These are usually influenced by several factors. The relevant factors include, among other things, personal circumstances, influences from social environment and individual tendencies which may be genetic or psychological in nature. In our opinion, measures which focus on the availability of gambling miss the point of combatting abuse. Bans do not act as a deterrent, but rather make something more attractive. If people want to play, they will always find ways and means to do so.
