BRBA supports Responsible Gambling Week 2019

The BRBA is proud to support 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, with more than 120,000 staff at thousands of gambling venues and online sites taking part.

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 Racecourse Association and the British Horseracing Authority, who will support Responsible Gambling Week 2019, on their website and across their social channels.

The BRBA is joining with other industry groups in helping to promote the five key responsible gambling behaviours:

·         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 

More details may be found on a new website, which 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.

The agenda can be found in the members area for the board meeting being held on 31/10/2019.

Urgent Notice to ALL Racecourse Bookmakers.

Due to a number of Bookmakers failing a recent age verification test, the Gambling Commission’s Enforcement Department has written to those failing.

Our own testing results are still disappointing and we must improve and if you have any doubts about a customer appearing to be under 21, you need to challenge them to prove that they are at least 18.

All On course Bookmakers should be aware that as a result of a warning by the Gambling Commission the BRBA have engaged Serve Legal to perform AV tests on ALL Northern Racecourses. Regrettably the pass rates for ALL those tested are still below expectation and we must warn ALL Bookmakers to be more vigilant. Obviously we are writing to BRBA Members to give them their results.

Following the robust warning from the Gambling Commission on the poor pass rates with AV testing in our sector we have engaged Serve Legal to do random tests in the North and the first results throughout June are very disappointing and we will be writing inform members of their results.

Would ALL involved please continue to be vigilant as your licence is at risk.
