Safer Gambling Week 2020 is set to launch tomorrow in the United Kingdom and Ireland, running from 19th November 2020 through 25th November 2020.
The campaign is aimed at raising awareness about safer gambling activities both online and offline.
This is always an initiative that is present in the industry, particularly with casino operators, but the week-long campaign is designed to be inviting for consumers to be an active part of the discussion around gambling and take part in the year’s campaign.
With the hashtag #SGWeek20 trending, a series of guides, reminders and advice are circulating to those that are already part of an online gambling website, including sports betting, casino gaming, poker, bingo and more product sectors.
In addition, a number of tools are being presented to consumers from casino and betting operators that not only remind people of the potential dangers associated with gambling, but to receive help and support, particularly about gambling control.
Whether a person is a bettor, punter or casino gaming enthusiast, gambling companies across the UK and Ireland are ensuring that people exercise caution when wagering and only spend wat they can afford, to set limits for both time and money, do not try and solve problems with gambling, do not gamble when angry or upset and to ensure that they recognise if gambling inteferes with personal relationships.
Safer Gambling Week also brings to the forefront an array of helpful resources that are available for download.
Furthermore, full details of how to get involved with the campaign are on the official Safer Gambling UK website along with an events schedule, including the EGR Summit 2020 that aims to build a safer gambling industry. The summit is presented by partner EGR Global on 24th November 2020 and will feature ‘expert speakers from across the sector, offering high-level education on current challenges and opportunities with regards to safer gambling’.
