Social Responsibility

Code of Conduct Jan 2017 355

Bingo is a well regulated and socially responsible form of gambling which takes place in a social setting. The responsibility for an individual’s gambling is his or her own; the industry’s responsibility is to exercise a duty of care.

The Bingo Association wants players to enjoy their bingo but to participate responsibly. Players should keep track of their spending and only spend what they can afford to lose. They should recognise that they are buying a night out and not a new life. For most people, gambling is a harmless form of entertainment, but for a very small minority, gambling can become an addiction and we encourage these people to seek support and treatment through organisations such as Gamcare and Gordon House.

The Association believes that providing information about problem gambling and the possibility of asking for self-exclusion is an important function for operators, and encourages its members to ensure that their staff are appropriately trained.

The Bingo Association has drawn up a Code of Conduct for Responsible Gambling, titled Getting It Right, which all Members are required to commit to as a condition of Membership.

Printed copies of Getting It Right are available upon request from The Bingo Association, or an electronic version can be down-loaded  HERE
