888.com launches responsible gaming Web site

12 December 2007

Gibraltar (PRESS RELEASE) -- 888.com, one of the World's leading entertainment companies, has launched a new website, dedicated to responsible gaming, called 888 Responsible (http://www.888responsible.com/).

As global leader in online entertainment, 888.com (http://www.888.com/) contributes many resources for the benefit of society in general and issues that involve gaming in particular. The new site is the latest addition to this social involvement, which is one of 888.com's top priorities as a company.

Ruth Tanami, 888.com's Director of Responsible Gaming, says 888 Responsible offers comprehensive and easily accessible information about responsible gaming practices, dealing with problem gambling, preventing underage gambling, charity activity and more.

The new website provides tools with which to address online gaming. Parents can learn how to identify if their teenage son or daughter might have a problem related to gambling, while players can take the self-assessment to test to determine their gambling habits, learn how to keep out of debt and even how they can exclude themselves from playing at online casinos.

888.com has also collaborated with GamCare (http://www.gamcare.co.uk/), the British National Association for Gambling Care Educational Resources & Training, and has received the association's Certification.

GamCare is one of the leading authorities on the provision of information, advice and practical help in addressing the social impact of gambling. 888 and GamCare now cooperate to keep a healthy gaming environment and to allow players to enjoy the game.

Andrew Poole, GamCare's Head of Online Services said 888.com deserve the organization's certificate for its high standards of social responsibility.

"We are delighted to award 888 with our Certification as a mark of their excellent standards of practice," Said Poole. "GamCare has a commitment to promote responsible attitudes to gambling, and we recognise the importance of acknowledging those organisations that have attained high standards of social responsibility and player protection, issues that are becoming increasingly important for any remote operator."

"GamCare recognises the good work 888.com has achieved in producing an informative site that aims to not only help people keep their gambling in control, but that also identifies how people can access support for themselves or someone else who may be affected by a gambling problem," added Poole. "Ensuring that gaming remains responsible and fun demands a collaborative effort from not only the gaming companies, but also from support agencies, governments and individual gamblers too. It is encouraging to see 888.com contributing in this way."
