Safer Gambling Week 2020

Safer Gambling Week is the biggest and most important gambling awareness initiative in our industry. Starting today, 19th November, and running until the 25th November, all facets of the Gaming business will group together and do their bit to help carry forward the conversation about gambling harm and ultimately, how to make the industry safer.

All the operators and all the advertisers, like us at WDW Bingo, want to engage in a dialogue with our players and hopefully we can all educate each other in the quest to stamp out the harm that people experience due to gambling. This is not just the online casino and bingo industry, this also includes bricks and mortar gambling like casinos, bingo halls, amusement arcades and, of course, high street bookies.

The Safer Gambling website is full of incredibly helpful information and resources if you need help or simply just want to know more. Check out this short video and more information below if you just want some more background information on what we are trying to achieve.

The three main points that Safer Gambling week is trying to get across are:

  1. How it’s possible to gamble more safely
  2. What tools are available to help you achieve this
  3. Where you should go should you need more help and advice

If you are an online gambler, there are lots of steps you can take to help you gamble more safely, as explained by our colleagues at Best New Bingo Sites.

These include:

  1. Limits on the size and frequency of your deposits
  2. Reality Check Reminders – These pop up while you’re playing to remind you how long you’ve been gambling
  3. Freeze your Account – This can be done with one specific site
  4. Self-Exclude yourself – From an entire network of sites
  5. Gamstop – Visit Gamstop if you simply want to self-exclude from ALL online gambling sites that have a UK licence. This is the fastest and most watertight way of cutting yourself off from online gaming if you think you need to stop ASAP.

Here at WDW, we think Safer Gambling Week is a great idea. The industry should come together for the common good of its players. A safe and healthy player means a better industry for us all, however you’re involved.

Finally, here are some resources that we think are helpful. Good luck and Safer Gambling to all!
