Karen Carney to Support TalkBanStop Campaign
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The UEFA European Football Championship (Euros) kicks off today. As football being one of the most bet-on sports in the UK, online betting opportunities will be ramping up. So, gambling support charities GamCare, Gamban and GAMSTOP have relaunched their TalkBanStop campaign.

GamCare, which operates the National Gambling Helpline reveals that during and post major sporting events there is an increase in calls to the helpline. GamCare has also found that many women gamblers are not seeking support.

The TalkBanStop campaign brings together the three gambling support charities who together offer a combination of free tools to block access to gambling websites, to self-exclude from gambling accounts alongside support that will help those worried about their gambling to take back control.

The new campaign is being supported by former England footballer Karen Carney. Carney is aiming to generate conversation around the impact of gambling and encourage people to seek help through TalkBanStop.

Carney is aware of the prominence of gambling around football in particular and has seen first-hand the challenges that many women are facing. Women are more likely to hide their gambling from their significant others and are more likely to feel stigma and shame acutely, if they have gambling issues.

Karen Carney said: “Campaigns like TalkBanStop are so important in raising awareness of the free resources available to everyone out there, particularly women who have battled with gambling around sport. Ahead of the upcoming Euros, it is important we raise awareness of the support that is available.

“There is a stigma associated for women and challenges around speaking out and seeking help, so it’s key to highlight the link between gambling and sport to help these women and girls on their journey to recovery. The Euros are an exciting part of the global sporting calendar, but for some, it can prove to be a challenging time with heightened gambling opportunities as a result.”

Quixant has announced the launch of Quantum and Qinetic, its new range of turnkey cabinets, which are tailored to the requirements and legislation of all global gaming markets and the sports betting industry.

The range of cabinets is powered by Quixant’s market-leading gaming hardware platforms and comes with a comprehensive suite of peripherals.

They are highly configurable and are available in a range of display and button deck configurations and can be tailored to meet each customer’s individual product and market requirements, with expert technical support from Quixant’s in-house cabinet design team.

Duncan Faithfull, EVP and CCO at Quixant, said: “We are renowned for providing powerful and reliable gaming hardware platforms and software solutions to the gaming industry, enabling our customers to focus on creating the best games and sports betting experiences on the planet.

“Speaking with our customers and the wider industry over recent months, it has become clear that sourcing and developing hardware solutions can be overly time consuming and costly and takes them away from developing content and enhancing the player experience – the thing that really differentiates their products.

“That’s why we developed Quantum and Qinetic, evolving from our range of market-leading platforms, to provide the industry with the powerful, reliable and game-changing outsourced cabinet solutions it requires.

“Like all of our products, they are developed with a deep, in-house understanding of the requirements and regulations of the gaming and sports betting world and are available via a variety of commercial models.

“With Quixant, you can get your cabinets to market faster and make them stand out from the crowd. We enable you to push what’s possible, adding the wow factor that doesn’t just stop customers in their tracks but keeps them coming back.

“While global component markets and their supply chains continue to be compromised, the team at Quixant is using all of its engineering expertise and supply chain knowledge to ensure we meet our customer’s product requirements.

“Launching our new cabinet range and enhancing Quixant.com and The Quixant Hub show our continued efforts to provide our customers the ultimate customer experience, so they can focus their efforts on developing game-changing content and the ultimate player experience.”
