Responsible and Problem Gambling Awareness Scholarship

At Casino Guru, we care deeply about the issue of problem gambling and spreading the awareness of responsible gambling practices. We would like to encourage younger people and scholars to study this area and learn about it, perhaps inspiring a future career that will lead to making the gambling world safer, especially for vulnerable individuals. It is also necessary to educate the youth about the dangers of gambling, which we hope to accomplish as well.

That is why we decided to launch a competition that allows students to win US$1,000 to help with their studies by writing and submitting an essay focusing on one of these areas:

  • Responsible gambling
  • Gambling addiction and problem gambling
  • Adolescent gambling
  • Gambling regulations

Note: If you are interested to join but your desired topic does not fall into one of the abovementioned areas, send us a message. You can find the relevant contact information down below in this article.

Terms of participation

Your essay needs to tackle one of the relevant issues, be written in English, and at least 3,000 words long to be eligible to win. It also needs to refer to credible and relevant sources, and we would like it to bring new perspectives and ways of dealing with the pressing issues mentioned above.

Let your imagination run wild – a creative and unique approach might help your essay be the best one.
