GiG, together with ComeOn, iGen, Kindred and the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) are joining forces to run Responsible Gambling Week 2019 – Malta Event. The week is a catalyst for raising awareness on safer gambling and responsible gambling issues. Together, the organisations have set up a range of workshops targeted toward RG professionals, held in Malta from 7-13 November and which are free of charge to attend.
Responsible Gambling Week is a campaign led by the Industry Group For Responsible Gambling (IGRG) which aims to act as a conversation catalyst on responsible and safer gambling.
The RG Week is a UK focused campaign and since a number of UK licensed gambling operators have offices located in Malta, and many of the issues and information are relevant and valuable in multiple jurisdictions.
During the week, sessions run by organisers GiG, ComeOn!, Kindred and the MGA will provide training, panel discussions, and Q&As to support professionals share knowledge about understanding the risks associated with gambling, the choices which can be made to gamble responsibly and what tools are available to help manage behaviour.
