|The Better Bingo Network has been thrilled by the publication of the annual GamCare report, delivered yesterday, after it revealed that online bingo has some of the lowest levels of problem gambling in the online gambling industry.|
From a sample of 1,229 of GamCare's clients, a mere 0.6% said that online bingo was one of their most frequently used forms of online gambling.
Dan Smyth, managing director of the Better Bingo Network, said: “While the Better Bingo Network are by no means complacent about the level of problem gambling among our players, it is reassuring to see that generally the levels of addiction and problem gaming among the bingo demographic is relatively low.”
“It is in nobody in the gambling industry's interest to encourage problem gamblers and we like to think we are among the most proactive companies in ensuring our clients see online bingo as a purely recreational product.”
The report also identified that remote gambling cases constituted 11% of total calls to the charity.
