Problem gambling executive has kind words for the industry

Geoffrey Godbold, the chief executive officer of the GREaT Foundation - successor to the Responsibility in Gambling Trust in the UK - has only kind words for the gambling industry's contribution in the fight against problem gambling.

Speaking at the annual general meeting of the Remote Gambling Association last week, Godbold said that the UK gambling industry's support for problem gamblers is unique and in social responsibility terms eclipses that of both the alcohol and retail industries.

The responsible gambling executive urged the industry to 'blow it's own trumpet more' in publicising the contribution that operators have made of their own volition to counter problem gambling over the last 10 years.

"This is one area where the gambling industry is unique," said Godbold. "The drinks industry doesn't look after its problem drinkers and the retail industry doesn't look after problem shoppers.The gambling industry has funded, set-up and run the whole operation for problem gamblers."

The GREaT Foundation was established as a charity in 2002 as Britain’s largest funding body responsible for tackling problem gambling through the funding of research, education and treatment from voluntary donations. The organisation is funded by donations from gambling companies.

The news comes in a week in which player protection and standards body eCOGRA completed its fifth annual Responsible Gambling training course for 70 online gambling staffers working in four different countries.

    "I do not understand if they told me in supporting the truth when I now communicate with them, you need between the bonuses, the chips need to make deposits was 1500 rubles (I did not know I had this time the amount is less than 1,500 rubles total deposits my between the chip 585 rubles). That is why they were the first to say, to write about it immediately and everything would be clear and clear and would not have had much time to wait and negotiate and I no longer have to make deposits of up to 1,500 rubles, I'm out of this situation, yet it not afraid to dare make deposits in LimoPlay and make deposits in other casinos. The second reason they could not even if I personally write a letter explaining that so and so to you, I'm not supposed bonus to tie that small sum made deposits between the chip, the more I turn to them not once but several of help and explanations. Third, I do not understand why they gave me and you to show that they have given me the chip, on October 19, if I did not receive not 19, not October 20 and until now I have not received. Fourth me support, they explain, they say one thing while you write something else. To me, they say that I did not give the chip a little as I did need to make deposits and deposits at least 1,500 rubles to get another chip, and at the same time, you write that they gave me the chip and I have played him and kak if I were still $ 0.19, and the chip is active until 26 October. Here are those questions I would like to get answers very interesting to see and hear their opinion about it all, there is not in their actions, reports any logic do not you think? Or is poor awareness or simply banal error occurred and confused me with another person, player. Thank you bye."
