European Safer Gambling Week, 17-23 October 2022
The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) is pleased to announce the second edition of the European Safer Gambling Week (ESGW) taking place on 17-23 October 2022.
The ESGW is an annual cross-border initiative to promote safer gambling in Europe and was established by EGBA in 2021. It is supported by a group of European online gambling associations, including EGBA and its members, who come together each year to encourage open and honest conversations about safer gambling in Europe.
The objective is to:
- Raise awareness about safer gambling.
- Provide customers with the information they need to gamble more safely.
- Sign-post the informational resources and help available for those who need it.
- Discuss the latest developments in safer gambling regulations and research.
While the ESGW focuses on a week of events and initiatives, EGBA and its members are committed to promoting a strong culture of safer gambling every day, and during the ESGW you can expect to see a concerted effort to raise awareness about safer gambling and make safer gambling information even more visible to customers.
This year’s edition is being organised by thirteen European online gambling associations, including the EGBA, and there will be a range of events and practical activities organised across Europe to raise awareness about safer gambling.
