Belgian Gaming Commission Provides Advice for Players in Lockdown
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Belgian Gaming Commission (BGC) has provided advice to the consumers to help protect themselves from gambling-related harm during the lockdown imposed due to coronavirus outbreak.

The regulator said it is aware that during the period of lockdown, more people may access igaming services and potentially suffer gambling-related harm.

BGC said anyone concerned about their gambling habits can call the “SOS Jeux” helpline and speak to an advisor about their problems. Consumers can also contact the BGC directly via email if they have any questions or concerns.

Also, BGC advised players to keep in touch with family and friends on the phone or via video call to help pass the time during the lockdown.

“While gambling has never been the solution to any problem, the current situation could see people spending more time on the internet especially on gaming sites. In addition, many people lose social control because they are alone at home. Therefore, there is a risk new players will become addicted or that existing players will sink further into addiction. It is of the utmost importance that the players, and in particular the vulnerable players, are not forgotten,” BGC said.
