Town supporting Responsible Gambling Week 2019
Blues are supporting Responsible Gambling Week, an industry-wide campaign to trigger a national conversation about what it means to gamble responsibly.
Responsible Gambling Week 2019, which takes place from November 7th – November 13th under the hashtag #RGWeek19, is the public face of the industry’s year-round commitment to promote safer gambling. More than 120,000 staff at thousands of gambling venues and online sites are taking part, and this marks the second consecutive year that clubs from the Premier League and English Football League are participating.
Key messages that Town are supporting from Responsible Gambling Week are:
- Only spend what you can afford
- Set your limits for time and money
- Gambling is not the answer to any problem
- Gambling when angry or upset is not a good idea
- Gambling shouldn’t interfere with your personal relationship
The campaign is led by the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling, comprised of all the gambling trade associations, and in Ireland by the Irish Bookmakers Association. The objective is to trigger a national conversation about safer gambling, highlighting the tools, advice and help available to customers, and the initiatives being taken by operators to promote social responsibility throughout the year.
The campaign has also attracted the support of the EFL and Sky Bet, who will dedicate advertising space in matchday programmes, on big screens and across their social channels.
A new website, www.responsiblegamblingUK.org, will act as an information hub, providing a comprehensive one-stop service for consumers all year round, educating them about all aspects of responsible gambling.
