Ensuring Europe’s online gamblers can play in a safe environment is an essential objective every day of the year: we all want customers who can enjoy a bet in a safe and responsible environment. The vast majority of customers do so, but some gamble too much, or too often, and need extra protection. And these past weeks, as millions of Europeans isolate at home due to the coronavirus lockdowns, safer gambling is even more important than ever.
