Online casino launches responsible gambling website
One of the largest online gambling sites, 888.com, is helping to promote responsible gambling with the launch of a new website, called www.888responsible.com.
888.com's Director of Responsible Gaming, Ruth Tanami, commented that 888 Responsible offers comprehensive and easily accessible information about responsible gaming practices, dealing with problem gambling, preventing underage gambling, charity activity and more.
888.com is also in collaboration with gamcare.co.uk, a British National Association for Gambling Care Educational Resources & Training, and has received the association's Certification. GamCare provides a resource of information, advice and practical help in addressing the social impact of gambling. The co-operation by these two companies will help keep a healthy gaming environment for players to continue to enjoy the game.
GamCare awarded 888.com with the organisation's certificate for its high standards of social responsibility.
“We are delighted to award 888 with our Certification as a mark of their excellent standards of practice,” Said Poole. “GamCare has a commitment to promote responsible attitudes to gambling, and we recognise the importance of acknowledging those organisations that have attained high standards of social responsibility and player protection, issues that are becoming increasingly important for any remote operator.”
“GamCare recognises the good work 888.com has achieved in producing an informative site that aims to not only help people keep their gambling in control, but that also identifies how people can access support for themselves or someone else who may be affected by a gambling problem,” added Poole. “Ensuring that gaming remains responsible and fun demands a collaborative effort from not only the gaming companies, but also from support agencies, governments and individual gamblers too. It is encouraging to see 888.com contributing in this way.”
