Betway Strongly Advocating Responsible Gambling

Published: Aug 4, 2020 - Last Updated: Aug 26, 2022

While some industries have struggled during the Covid-19 pandemic, some have thrived due to lockdown restrictions. DIY stores, home delivery, and shopping services are just a couple of those that have undergone a boom time as habits have changed and another is the gambling industry and in particular esports betting.

With many betting sites reporting a massive increase in bets on esports gaming, particularly when sporting events had been cancelled in many parts of the world, there has been an increased requirement on companies to ensure that those gambling on esports are doing so responsibly and that is what Betway are doing with their latest promotional campaign.

Responsible Gambling Tools

On their website, Betway have made a steadfast commitment to helping their punters “Stay in control” of their gambling, and to allow them to do that, they have introduced a number of Responsible Gambling Tools to help them when using the website.

The tools have been available on the site for some time, but have been brought into greater focus in recent times both due to the Covid-19 pandemic and also due to the UK government’s greater restrictions on problematic gambling, which has pushed the onus onto betting sites and providers to ensure that their customers can access tools and features to help them gamble responsibly.

To this end, Betway offer a number of different options for customers to help them with their gambling if required.

Focus on Responsible Esports Betting

What is different about this campaign is that it is the first time that it has been aimed at esports betting in particular, with a number of Betway Tweets featuring Esports players and teams prominently in the post.

The campaign seems a very prudent move given the massive increase in esports betting in recent times and the UK government’s initiatives to reduce problematic gambling in the UK.
