UKGC to Carry Out Workshop for Responsible Gambling

Staff Writer Industry News 3,740

Responsible gambling is an essential segment that every firm in the industry needs to be aware of when running a gambling business.

The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has announced new facts about the series of workshop events they had organised with the intention of improving the responsible gaming strategies, with a strong emphasis on smaller operators.

The Details and Hosts

The workshop events will be conducted in order to spark awareness about common compliance practices and money laundering problems. Another issue that will be tackled is helping players stay safe when using multi-operator self-exclusion and local risk assessments.

Performance Spaces Central Library in Manchester will be the first to host the workshop. The invitees include representatives from local smaller operators across the arcade, as well as betting and bingo industries.

Re-Emphasising the Importance of Taking the Rules Seriously

Helen Venn, Executive Director of Compliance and Licensing at the UKGC, has said that raising standards across the whole gambling industry is “at the heart of [their] latest strategy to shape a well-regulated gambling market that works for consumers.”

Venn also sees these workshops as an ideal opportunity to engage smaller operators in person and show them how crucial the awareness and the action against about money laundering are.

Stepping Up to Protect UK Players

In the past couple of weeks, the UKGC has announced a series of statements that outlined its devotion to grapple with issues related to responsible gambling in the United Kingdom. One of the announcements was strongly focused on warranting to take “tougher action” against gambling firms that breach regulations in the UK.

Moreover, in August the UKGC issued a warning on withdrawal policies, and started a project looking into whether some gambling products are more harmful than others.
