Legislators Urge to Raise UK Charity Lottery SalesReading Time: 1 minute

 

The members are UK Parliament are pushing to increase the limit of charity lottery sales in the country. The move to raise the same failed last year. But the move got a new life this year. A poll revealed that at least 55% of MPs support the UK charity lottery sales limit to rise to €116 million.

According to MP David Amess, the reform is needed to raise money for good causes. “Charity lotteries do great work in raising money for good causes and charities across the country,” he said. “With the stroke of a pen, culture secretary Jeremy Wright and charity minister Mims Davies have an opportunity to dramatically increase the amount of funding available to the charity sector. I and my colleagues urge them to take it.”

MP Miles Briggs also said it would have “an immediate and very positive impact on the level of funding available to charities.” He added that it would “ensure that the charity lottery model for funding charities is sustainable for the years ahead.”

“The government has an opportunity to make a decision that will be of obvious benefit to charities and good causes,” he assured.

GambleAware Launches “No Bet Inn” in Liverpool as Part of Bet Regret CampaignReading Time: 1 minute

 

GambleAware has Launched “No Bet Inn” in Liverpool as part of Bet Regret campaign. The Bet Regret campaign aims to give support for the young men aged 16–34 who gamble regularly. New research conducted for GambleAware revealed that 58% of 18–44 year-old male sports bettors agree that they make impulsive bets in the heat of the moment.

“Some of my fondest memories of playing football were with Liverpool, so it was great to have a chat with fellow fans and watch the current team play, and it was genuinely nice to watch a full match in the No Bet Inn without the distraction of a mobile in anyone’s hand. No checking Instagram, no updating Facebook and crucially, no betting in-play or whilst drinking. It’s crazy to see the number of fans placing ill-considered bets and regretting it afterwards, so it was great to remind people to think twice before betting, avoid Bet Regret and just enjoy the game,” Garcia, famous football player said.

Marc Etches, CEO of GambleAware, said: “We created the No Bet Inn as a demonstration of our Bet Regret campaign and to make football fans think hard about their betting habits. At the No Bet Inn, people could enjoy the game and avoid BetRegret. The is one part of a national campaign for safer gambling which launched in February to raise awareness of behaviours that people might not always recognise as impulsive or risky, such as sports betting when drunk, bored or chasing losses.”

“Esports fans respect and welcome those brands that embrace what they already love, and get the need for the revenue and exposure that sponsors, distributors, and content creators bring with them,” says Bobby Sharma, founding partner of the Esports advisory firm Electronic Sports Group, in the playbook.

“But they also know when they are being used as test subjects… and that is where things can go awry,” he adds.
