Suited 'n' Booted: Swansea City to Wear Special Edition Shirts for Responsible Gambling Week
When Swansea City AFC play Rotherham on Saturday 3rd November 2018 at the New York Stadium, you might notice something a little different. As part of our commitment to Safer Gambling, the RG week logo will replace BetUK.com as the main shirt sponsor.
Not only that, but BetUK.com will then be auctioning off the special edition shirts, with all proceeds going to the Gordon Moody Association - a charity with a unique and intensive residential treatment programme for addicted gamblers in the UK.
As the main shirt sponsor and principal betting partner of Swansea City AFC, we have worked closely with the club to make this happen. BetUK.com believe in delivering the best online betting experience and are committed to safe and responsible gambling, whether this is betting on sports such as football or on our online casino games.
BetUK.com Leading The Way
Delivering the best gaming experience to our customers is a top priority at BetUK.com. Which is why we have created a new Responsible Gambling team, which gives us the tools to provide a safe and secure environment for our customers. The team is 24/7 and are trained in collaboration with EPIC Risk Management. They are trained to listen, support, advise and recognise problem gambling behaviours and work with predictive data analytics. If a potential indicator is flagged the team will actively seek to interact with the customer.
BetUK.com takes all key areas into account, from the sign-up process to making a withdrawal. “BetUK.com receives frequent feedback from customers that this level of care and support has not been received anywhere else and how much they appreciate and value the security of knowing they are in a safer gambling environment,” said Mark Good, BetUK.com CEO.
As part of BetUK.com we have a selection of Responsible Gambling controls available to all customers. This enables players to stay safe, knowing that they can use them at any time.
Reality Checks - prompts to remind a customer how long they have been playing for.
Deposit Limits - customer can set a cap on how much they would like to be able to fund their BetUK.com account with per day, week or month.
Take a Break - cool off from gambling by blocking access to your account for between one day and six weeks.
Responsible Gambling Week
Responsible Gambling Week is between 1st-7th November 2018. The theme of the event is 'Let's Talk About Gambling'. BetUK.com will be part of the event to raise awareness of risky gambling behaviours. The event aims to get the wider public to openly talk about what it means to gamble responsibly.
This week has been designed to get people talking about what it means to gamble responsibly. There will be ideas and tools that enable the industry to keep gambling fun but safe at the same time. There will be Q&A sessions, with workshops too.
