BGC reports record use of safer gambling tools

Following Safer Gambling Week 2023, there was a significant increase in the use of safer gaming technologies, according to new statistics issued by the UK’s Betting and Gaming Council.

In comparison to the same month in 2022, BGC reports that during SG Week 2023, there were 18% more deposit restrictions set. In the meantime, 54% of players who set deposit limits did so for the first time. Furthermore, for the second year in a row, the number of participants actively providing a reality check during SGW increased by more than 300 percent.

Moreover, during SG Week 2023, the usage of maximum stake limits increased by more than 300 percent. Additionally, the event broke social media records, producing 50 million impressions on Facebook, Instagram, and X, the old Twitter platform.

BGC CEO and acting chair Michael Dugher said:

“These new figures show Safer Gambling Week continues to be a powerful advert for increasing use of safer gambling tools in the regulated industry. Millions of customers now use safer gambling tools including deposit limits and time-outs. This is a pillar of the regulated industry and is in marked contrast to the unsafe, unregulated and growing online gambling black market, which provides no safer gambling support, contributes zero tax and does not support sport.
