l’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ), France’s unified gambling regulator has relaunched ‘Evalujeu’ an online service that provides the public with self-evaluation tests on problem gambling.

Recognised as a ‘vital safety component of France’s gambling network’, Evalujeu has operated since 2015 helping the public evaluate their gambling habits.

The website allows users to answer questionnaires related to gambling and provides evaluated feedback informing users of potential harms and vulnerabilities.

Evalujeu has been programmed using the ‘Canadian Excessive Gambling Index’ (CPGI) to determine the users’ level of risk. Dependent on the result, Evalujeu will provide personalised advice to help the user and ensure that “gambling is maintained at as a recreational practice”.
