Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG) has announced that Responsible Gambling Week 2019 will take place from 7th -13th November and that following the success of RG Week 2018 organisations and businesses from across Britain will once again join forces to support the campaign.

The IGRG brings together every sector of the gambling industry through its member trade associations, the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB); British Amusement Machine Association (BACTA); The Bingo Association (BA); National Casino Forum (NCF); and Remote Gambling Association (RGA); all with the common objective of raising awareness of safer gambling behaviours and encouraging staff, customers and the wider public to discuss what it means to gamble responsibly.

The headline theme of the Week will be Let’s Talk About Safer Gambling. By coming together with one voice, the industry is able extend its reach and ensure that the message of safer gambling connects with the widest possible audience.

Encouraged by the success of Responsible Gambling Week 2017 and building on the huge engagement achieved in 2018, which encompassed more than 12,000 gambling venues and online sites, 120,000 employees across Great Britain and created some 20 million impressions on social media, the IGRG is seeking to build on these excellent results and take the campaign further in 2019.

Operators promote responsible gambling 365 days of the year, but Responsible Gambling Week creates the opportunity for businesses to start a conversation about safer gambling not only with their customers, but also with their friends and families.

John Hagan, Chairman of the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling, said:

“Social responsibility is fundamental to the gambling industry’s approach, and we are all dedicated, year-round, to promoting safer gambling. But what makes Responsible Gambling Week special is that the whole industry is united and engaged to highlight safer gambling to a broader audience.

“Responsible Gambling Week 2018 was widely supported across the industry, helping to set a new benchmark for the campaign. We are confident that with the continued support of operators, charities and information networks we can build on last year’s success and reach a far greater audience.

“RG Week 2019 will take place from 7th to 13th November; in announcing these dates early in the year we are hoping that the increased planning time will encourage and allow for further support. For 2019 we will be seeking to broaden RG Week’s supporter base and make use of complimentary communication networks, refining message themes for RG Week in line with consumer research and following input from specialist support groups.”

Responsible Gambling Week will be attending ICE Totally Gaming, held at London ExCel from 5th – 7th February 2019, where team members will be available to discuss this year’s campaign.

Further information about RG Week 2019 will be made available on the Responsible Gambling Week web site in the coming weeks and supporters can register for updates on the site. The website will be a key resource and information point for the 2019 campaign for customers, the general public, staff and supporting organisations, in addition to providing information and material for the media. Social media channels for Responsible Gambling Week 2019 are also live on Facebook and Twitter @RGWeek19

Responsible Gambling Week 2019 will take place from 7th – 13th November 2019. Organisations wishing to support the Week and get involved should, if a member of a supporting trade association, contact their trade association first. Organisations that are not members of a supporting trade association should contact the Responsible Gambling Week team by email: [email protected]

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Player-focused casino games developer Red Rake Gaming, based in Spain and Malta, is delighted to announce its newest regulated market, Belarus. Red Rake Gaming made the move due to the demand from its clients and the response of their game content in the region.

Belarus introduced regulations in 2019 with operators required to obtain the relevant licenses ahead of a potential closure for non-regulated operators scheduled to take affect from 1st April 2021, 2 years after it introduced the licensing framework.

A selection of the top performing games will be made available to the Belarus licensed operators which include its records breaking Super12Stars – the non-stop, action packed slot which combines feature games and bonus rounds from all its predecessors in the Super series of games, all of which are firm favourites in the region. Additional titles from the diverse portfolio include Million 7 – giving players a million ways to win, The Asp of Cleopatra, Ryan O’Bryan and Mysteries of Egypt, to mention but a few.

Delivering into regulated markets is at the heart of Red Rake Gaming’s growth strategy, and our latest market entry represents a superb opportunity for the company to further its reach in Belarus.

Nick Barr, Managing Director for Red Rake Malta, commented: “We are continuing our commitment to driving our regulated market strategy and Belarus is the first new market for 2020, with more markets in the pipeline. It is important to Red Rake Gaming that we continue to support our clients in new markets strategies. Our games have been notably well received in the region, and we are looking forward to continuing to grow with our clients and delivering the finest games to the Belarusian players.”

Relax Gaming, iGaming aggregator and supplier of unique content, has expanded its widely-popular Tumble slot series with the action-packed addition of TNT Tumble.

Set in a serene meadow lined by Alpine mountains, the 5×7 grid slot offers explosive gameplay where players mine for valuable crystals and big wins of over 12,000x stake.

The game features TNT blocks which destroy a layer of dark stone when they fall, as well as Drill Wilds which travel down the reels racking up big prizes to add to the win.

In the showstopping Free Spins bonus round awarded when all dark stone blocks in the main game are destroyed, the player is provided with three variations of volatility to choose from: Multipliers, Multipliers & Extra Spins and Extra Spins.
