Five operators join the Senet Group
Five casino operators have joined the Senet Group as part of an industry-wide collaboration against problem gambling. Aspers, Ceasars, Genting, Playtech and the Rank Group have all joined the Senet Group.
The five operators will join Senet’s quarterly CEO forum alongside GVC Holdings, William Hill, Paddy Power Betfair, SkyBet and Scotbet. Gillian Wilmot is the group’s independent chairman.
The operators will join Senet’s “When the fun stops, stop” responsible gambling campaign, by featuring the slogan on their own responsible gambling campaigns.
The Senet Group is a UK body that promotes responsible gambling. It is independent and designed to raise standards in the sector. It supports the work of the UK Gambling Commission and was created by four of the UK’s most well-known operators, Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral and Paddy Power.
Speaking about the news, Sarah Hanratty, chief executive of the Senet Group, said:
With a great many initiatives and projects underway across the gambling industry, aimed at understanding and reducing problem gambling, the sector needs to improve its ability to collaborate on the development, testing and sharing of interventions which work. Senet is doing its part in leading and facilitating collaborative projects, and I am delighted that our new partners have chosen to recognise the importance of collective leadership on safer gambling.– Sarah Hanratty, CEO Senet Group
