All sectors of the gambling industry (arcades, bingo clubs, bookmakers, casinos and online) through the Industry Group for Responsible Gabling (IGRG) have, for the first time, agreed to hold a pan-industry Responsible Gambling Week to raise awareness of responsible gambling.

The trade associations driving the week, with the support of their membership, are: bacta, The Remote Gambling Association (RGA), National Casino Forum (NCF), The Bingo Association, The Association of British Bookmakers.

Follow consultation with stakeholders it was agreed that the inaugural national Responsible Gambling Week would run from Thursday 12th October to Wednesday 18th October 2017.

The vision for Responsible Gambling Week is to create a conversation about responsible gambling – with customers, staff, the wider public and key stakeholders. The key objectives of the campaign are to raise awareness of:

  • how to gamble responsibly
  • the tools that are available to help customers gamble responsibly
  • where to find more help and support for those who need it

John White, Chief Executive of bacta said, ‘Responsible Gambling Week is about an industry working together to highlight its year-round commitment to Social Responsibility and the tools we have available to help those with a problem or at risk of developing one. The Week will encourage and enable those who are worried about their gambling, or their friends and family, to talk to us about how we can help.   Bacta are delighted to support this IRGR initiative’.
