Responsible Gaming

Committed to Responsible Gaming

Licences to permit the provision of business-to-business services for pari-mutuel betting on horse and greyhound racing are held by our companies in over 30 jurisdictions in the Americas and Europe. Licences for business-to-consumer activity for the same products are held in Connecticut and Holland.

Sportech employs security and compliance staff whose primary role is to ensure that our customers are treated fairly, that our advertising is compliant with advertising standards and codes, that the young and vulnerable are prevented from accessing our products and that abuse and illegal behaviour are identified and stopped. All gaming products are subject to age restrictions and age verification software is employed where appropriate.

We actively promote GamCare, the charity providing support to those suffering through a gambling problem, to our customers and nearly £0.5m has been contributed to the Responsible Gambling Trust, GamCare’s major funder, and to its predecessor bodies over recent years. The Venues business in Connecticut contributes over £0.1m annually to promote responsible gambling in the state.
