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.”

Aristocrat Appoints New Senior Market Manager for France
Aristocrat Gaming has appointed experienced slot games specialist Marie Hubaud to the newly created role of senior market manager for France.
A graduate of SKEMA Business School, Lille and an Executive Master of Business Administration in Digital Strategies, Hubaud was most recently sales & marketing director at LUDI SFM for six years and has also served in senior commercial, marketing and management roles for a diverse range of blue chip brands in FMCG and pharmaceutical sectors, as well as enjoying spells of volunteering with charitable organisations.
“France is a key market for Aristocrat Gaming. Over the last decade, we’ve established a significant footprint across French gaming floors and a loyal following amongst players. Marie has extensive knowledge of the market and will serve as a conduit of support for our long-standing SFM distributor, Société Française de Commercialisation d’Appareils Automatiques (SFC2A).

Dallmeier Shortlisted for the European Casino Awards 2023
Dallmeier, an expert in video technology for casinos, has been shortlisted in two categories for the upcoming European Casino Awards 2023, its Panomera W8 360° cameras as “Best new innovative product” and Casino Automation Technology CAT as “Best table gaming product”.
The Panomera W8 is a 360° camera with 4K resolution ensuring complete 360° coverage without a “blind spot” below the camera. Six sensors are arranged in a circle, a seventh sensor covers the overall scene and an eighth sensor captures the blind spot below the camera. From these eight images, the software then stitches a complete image of the half-sphere around the camera location that has been captured without gaps. Within this overview image, multiple operators can open any number of detail areas with a mouse-click and zoom in and move around in these areas as if it was a PTZ cam.
Casino operators who use such systems report that they regularly reduce the time needed from the detection of an incident to the resolution – e.g., by catching an offender – by a factor of up to 10 or more.
Furthermore, the overall costs for monitoring the gaming floor are reduced. Although the costs per camera are higher than a PTZ system, far fewer cameras need to be installed. The resulting savings in installation, infrastructure, and maintenance as well as in operation itself outweigh the additional costs for the cameras themselves.
