Senet Group, the UK responsible gambling body, announces that five of the UK’s largest casino and gaming companies, Aspers, Caesars, Genting, Playtech and the Rank Group, have joined Senet.  They join five other funding partners including GVC (LadbrokesCoral), William Hill, Paddy Power Betfair, SkyBet and Scotbet.

The Senet Group was established in 2014 to promote responsible gambling standards in the UK and to ensure the marketing of gambling is socially responsible.  The new partners will now sit on the Senet Group’s quarterly CEO forum, which advises the Senet Board and its independent Chairman, Gillian Wilmot.

Since 2014, the Senet Group has played an important role in the development and improvement of advertising standards in the gambling sector, in addition to running player messaging campaigns under the When the fun stops, stop tagline.  Senet Group also runs MOSES, the self-exclusion scheme for UK high street bookmarkers.

Commenting on the new joiners, Sarah Hanratty, Chief Executive of the Senet Group, said: “With a great many initiatives and projects underway across the gambling industry, aimed at understanding and reducing problem gambling, the sector needs to improve its ability to collaborate on the development, testing and sharing of interventions which work.  Senet is doing its part in leading and facilitating collaborative projects, and I am delighted that our new partners have chosen to recognise the importance of collective leadership on safer gambling.”

On behalf of the new funding partners, John O’Reilly, CEO Rank Group plc, said: “This is a significant statement of intent from all five companies who share the view that responsible gambling should be at the heart of our businesses. The Senet Group is well placed to deliver an ambitious programme of work, and today’s announcement further strengthens the industry’s wider commitment to ensuring a safer gambling environment can be enjoyed by all customers.  There is a lot to do, an appetite to do it, and we are delighted to be adding our collective muscle to the Senet Group’s work.”

About the Senet Group:

The Senet Group seeks to raise standards in the gambling sector through best practice and other partnership initiatives and to promote responsible gambling through a campaign of broadcast, print and digital advertising and player messaging.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Gambless has been developed and fully funded by Mindspa Health; it has not received any contribution from the gambling industry.

Since its launch, the application has helped thousands of vulnerable individuals and provided resources worth hundreds of thousands of dollars for free to problem gamblers.

Thanks to ranking #1 for most ‘gambling addiction’ related keywords in the app stores, all traffic towards the app has been organic, resulting in 96% of the users scoring a mid-to-high level of problematic gambling.

The operators most frequently mentioned by problem gamblers are: Ladbrokes in the UK, DraftKings in the US, PokerStars in Italy, and TAB in Australia

Comparing language clusters, English speakers recorded a severity score 57% higher compared to Italian speakers, possibly also due to the effects of the gambling advertising ban in place in Italy.
