The UK industry will observe Responsible Gambling Week from November 7 to 13, led by Praesepe, the Gauselmann Group adult gaming centres operator.
Staff from all sections of the business and based throughout the country will make special efforts to support the initiative. Simon Coombes, head of marketing at Praesepe, said: “All of our 165 venues, including Beacon Bingo clubs and Merkur Cashino AGCs, will be taking part in RGW supporting the campaign through the trade association, BACTA, and the Bingo Association.
“We will also be raising awareness at our support centre in Milton Keynes with high-visibility official RGW point-of-sale materials displayed throughout the three floors of the building.”
He added: “To promote RGW we have undertaken a five-week countdown in our internal Business Bulletin updates that go to every venue, office employee and field worker in the company. Working in partnership with Blueprint, our sister company, the RGW point-of-sale is also being displayed in cabinets across our AGC and bingo estate.”
The company has timed its annual company conferences to coincide with the week, underlining the central role that compliance and social responsibility play in the business. “The conferences taking place in London and Birmingham will have a sharp focus on Responsible Gambling Week as well as the recent updates to the LCCP.”
