FansBet supports Safer Gambling Week 2020

Safer Gambling Week 2020 runs between November 19th - 25th and is the public face of the industry’s year-round commitment to promote responsible gambling.


FansBet are proud to support Safer Gambling Week, an industry-wide campaign to trigger a national conversation about what it means to gamble responsibly.

Safer Gambling Week 2020, which takes place from November 19th – November 25th under the hashtag #SGWeek20, is the public face of the industry’s year-round commitment to promote safer gambling driving awareness of:

  • How to gamble more safely;
  • The tools that are available to help people gamble safely all year round;
  • Sources of more advice and support.

The annual campaign builds on the success of Responsible Gambling Week, which began in 2017 – the first campaign to unite all sectors of the gambling industry.

It marks the successful growth and evolution of the on-going awareness and education campaign, participants and supporters of which now extend far beyond the gambling sector.


FansBet’s support will encompass publishing information on #SGWeek20 on our social channels throughout the week detailing the six key messages.

  • Ask yourself…  have you carried on past your spending limit?
  • Just a heads up… it’s good to set yourself limits
  • Just a heads up…  it’s easy to lose track of time when gambling
  • Play smart…  know when to stop
  • Remember…  friends and family are more important than gambling
  • Remember…  gambling is not a way to make money

More than 100,000 staff at more than 9,000 gambling venues and online sites in the UK and Ireland will take part in Safer Gambling Week, helping to drive a national conversation.

Michael Dugher, Chief Executive, Betting and Gaming Council, said: “As the new body representing the betting and gaming industry, the BGC is committed to driving up standards and promoting safer gambling.

“Safer Gambling Week is a fantastic initiative which the BGC are proud to play a leading role in. This awareness campaign is now in its fourth year and it has achieved a significant increase in engagement at all levels on the tools and support available to customers.

“We achieved over 25 million impressions on social media in 2019, setting a new benchmark for the campaign, which demonstrates the breadth and reach of the campaign.”

FansBet promotes responsible gambling 365 days of the year, but Safer Gambling Week creates the opportunity for all businesses and organisations to start a conversation about safer gambling, not only with their customers, but also with their staff and in turn their friends and family.

At FansBet, we’re fully committed to the promotion of responsible gaming, the protection of minors and the socially vulnerable as well as ensuring our activities are conducted in a fair and open way.
