|Gibraltar-based online gambling group 888.com has announced the launch of a new website dedicated to responsible gaming at 888 Responsible.com.|
888.com stated that the website is part of its extensive social responsibility program and launched in synch with Britainís National Association for Gambling Care Educational Resources And Training (GamCare) responsible gambling charity.
Ruth Tanami, Director of Responsible Gaming for 888.com stated that the new website is to offer comprehensive and accessible information about responsible gaming practices, dealing with problem gambling, preventing underage gambling and charitable activities.
The site will provide tools to address problem gaming and give information for parents to identify whether their children may have a problem with gambling. Players may take a self-assessment to test to determine their gambling habits and learn how to keep out of debt.
In recognition, 888.com has been recognised by GamCare and received the association''''s certification.
''''We are delighted to award 888 with our certification as a mark of their excellent standards of practice,'''' said Andrew Poole, Head Of Online Services for GamCare.
''''GamCare has a commitment to promote responsible attitudes to gambling and we recognise the importance of acknowledging those organisations that have attained high standards of social responsibility and player protection, issues that are becoming increasingly important for any remote gambling operator.
''''Ensuring that gaming remains responsible and fun demands a collaborative effort from not only the gaming companies but also from support agencies, governments and individual gamblers too. It is encouraging to see 888.com contributing in this way.''
