Responsible Gambling Week: Industry unites to raise awareness

words by Maja Vik / 12 Oct 2017

Today marks the day of the first-ever Responsible Gambling Week, a great initiative run by the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG). The awareness campaign is taking place in the UK, and has already tracked a broad involvement from various sectors within the industry.  It aims to encourage a conversation about responsible gambling, knowing your limits and the tools available in order to uphold a fun and safe environment.

“At Kindred, responsible gambling is critical in order to sustain a healthy, long-term business. For 20 years, we have put our customers first by offering them the best deal and a great customer experience, in a safe and secure environment. Responsible gambling is good for customers and Kindred. If gambling stops being fun and entertaining, it is time to stop gambling”, said CEO Henrik Tjärnström.

Back in September, Kindred co-hosted the Responsible Gaming Conference alongside the Foundation for Social Welfare Service. The 2nd annual conference gathered over 270 attendees, an event which will continue to take place every year.

Kindred is committed to responsible gambling and is currently funding the development of a free gambling therapy app. The app will be available in the Nordics and targets problem gamblers, providing therapeutic exercises aimed at facilitating a fun and safe player environment.

Henrik Tjärnström continues saying, “being a socially responsible and sustainable business is core to our values, which is why we applaud this initiative. Responsible Gambling Week sets the bar within the industry and encourages participation from all sectors. We are very happy to contribute to raising awareness and welcome any opportunity to continue to talk about responsible gambling”.
