Responsible Gambling Week is a cross-industry initiative to promote responsible gambling.


RG Week is designed to get people talking about what it means to gamble responsibly, focusing on the tools that are available to keep gambling fun and how players across all types of gambling can gamble safely. We also ensure that anyone who needs additional information or help and support knows where they can find it.

All sectors of the gambling industry in United Kingdom – casinos, bookmakers, online companies, amusement arcades and bingo – and the Irish Bookmakers Association come together for the Week, which this year takes place from 1st – 7th November, continuing the campaign theme ‘Let’s Talk About Responsible Gambling’.

Each part of the gambling industry supports and promotes responsible gambling throughout the year, with Responsible Gambling Week providing a national, industry wide, opportunity to raise the subject and start conversations about responsible gambling with the widest audience possible: staff, customers, family and friends, and members of the general public.

A range of promotional material with key information has been produced and made available to all supporting organisations: these materials cover some or all of the following:

  • ask questions about gambling behaviour
  • high light the five key behaviours of responsible gambling
  • provide details of where and how to obtain further information and help if needed
  • promote the Responsible Gambling Week website and social media channels: Facebook and Twitter @RGWeek18
