Ladbrokes launches helpline in Ireland
By abigail
Ladbrokes have launched a helpline for problem gamblers in Ireland. The new facility is operating in line with the existing programme in the UK- known as the Corporate Social Responsibility Programme. The helpline number- (00 800 33 669 966)- links callers who are concerned they may have a problem with GamCare, a UK based organisation.

GamCare provides help and advice on the spot to people concerned about their own habits, or for friends and family worried about someone they know. The helpline number will be advertised in the 134 Ladbrokes operators in Ireland. For concerned online gamblers, Ladbrokes also provides a facility to help with any problems.

The Chief Executive of GamCare, Paul Bellinger, stated that he has hopes that this initiative shown by Ladbrokes would inspire the governments to act in a similar way. Bellinger said of the need for a helpline: “It is a fact of life that some people suffer problems with gaming and it is incumbent on the gaming industry to recognise this fact and support those who have difficulty staying in control.”

Online Casino provides online gamblers with information on online casino gambling, sports betting tips, wining casino tips, internet casino reviews, sports odds, matchups, results, editorial and much, much more… We also have an industry insider’s section including Internet gaming press releases, a calendar of events and gaming industry news.
