Footy Accumulator are proud announce that we're fully supporting Responsible Gambling Week. #RGWeek18 is an industry wide campaign created to trigger a national conversation about what it means to gamble responsibly, something that's vitality important in todays world.

#RGWeek18 takes place from November 1st to 7th under the slogan ‘Let’s Talk about Responsible Gambling’ and it's gaining plenty of positive recognition, with clubs from the EFL also participating to raise awareness. These clubs range from the Championship down to League Two and with them being so firmly in the public eye, it will certainly have a positive effect on responsible gambling.

Footy Accumulators' support will see us promote #RGWeek18 both on our official website and social media channels each day, ensuring that our followers and audience are fully aware about responsible gambling. There are five key things to bare in mind when it comes to gambling responsibly:

  • Only spend what you can afford
  • Set your limits for time and money
  • Gambling is not the answer to any problem
  • Gambling when angry or upset is not a good idea
  • Gambling shouldn't interfere with your personal relationships

The event is being organised by the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG), which through its member trade associations, encompasses all sectors of the gambling industry: online, amusement arcades, bingo clubs, bookmakers and casinos. #RGWeek18 also includes Ireland for the first time, where the campaign will be supported by more than 800 bookmakers, and by the Arcades Association, the Gaming and Leisure Association of Ireland, Horse Racing Ireland and the Irish Greyhound and Horse Racing Tote.

At the gambling venues, responsible gambling literature will be available to customers, designed to trigger conversations about how to keep gambling fun and safe. Customers who need further help or information will be signposted to GambleAware, an independent charity which funds research, education and treatment, and is supporting Responsible Gambling Week.

More than 127,000 staff at around 11,000 gambling venues and online sites across the United Kingdom and Ireland will take part in Responsible Gambling Week, triggering a national conversation with customers and their friends and families about what it means to gamble responsibly. The theme of the week is ‘Let’s Talk About Responsible Gambling’ and practical advice will be shared through social media channels to ensure responsible gambling messages reach the widest possible audience.
