13th - 19th of November 2023
Monday, November 13th marks the beginning of Safer Gambling Week.
It’s the sixth such important annual initiative and sees the whole of the UK and Irish licensed gambling industry - bookmakers, amusement arcades, bingo clubs, casinos and online gaming operators - come together with the support of gambling charities, youth associations, and other interested parties to get everyone talking about safer gambling; and raise awareness of where further information is available, for those who need it.
Betting is a leisure activity. The Betfred family, our staff and customers, value and respect sensible, safer gambling; and for the vast majority, it’s a hugely enjoyable part of what we do in our precious downtime.
When we relax, have fun. Let’s celebrate that. At the same time, we want to emphasise the importance of maintaining that healthy balance.
This annual campaign serves as a reminder to promote awareness of safer gambling and highlights the readily available support and tools, should they be needed.
It’s important to stress that it’s not just one week of the year when we salute the mature and sensible way we enjoy our gambling and highlight the measures that can help if we need them – our commitment to Safer Gambling is absolute and unconditional, 24/7, 365 days a year.
This week helps to keep best practices at the front of all our minds. It gets us talking. Reflecting.
"Safer Gambling Week is an essential initiative that helps us engage in crucial conversations about safer gambling
It's about fostering an environment where everyone can enjoy the experience without compromising their well-being"
Fred Done, Betfred Owner.
We want you to know that your well-being is our priority, and we are here to provide the necessary guidance and assistance whenever you need it. Our dedicated Customer Service Team is available around the clock to address any concerns, and help you maintain control.
Safer Gambling Week extends from the 13th to the 19th of November, but we champion safer gambling every single week of every single year.
You will find lots of helpful material on our website by accessing the Safer Gambling tab on the Homepage. Setting realistic limits, perhaps on time and spending, is just one available option to consider. Check it out – and you’ll know exactly what’s available.
Many thanks for your kind attention and continued support. This is an essential part of who Betfred are as a company. Let’s continue to enjoy our betting, and remember;
Keep it fun – gamble safely with Betfred
