The most famous online betting providers Ladbrokes, Carol, Paddy Power and William Hill will have to proceed advertising responsible gaming in their ads online and on television due to the new UK legislation. The marketing campaign with the message ‘When the fun stops, stop’ was offered by the Senet Group, an independent new entity set up by the betting operators. Its aim is to focus people on responsible betting and controlling themselves. Gambleaware.com.ua will be promoted brighter in the ads.
Marc Etches, the chief executive officer of the Responsible Gambling Trust, said “We praised the Senet Group for such an advert that will help players to control their play. This is a new way of developing responsible gambling in British gambling industry.” Members of the Senet Group promised not to promote free bets and free sign-up options before 9p.m on TV and slot machines in shop windows.
