Ukraine’s Gambling Commission (KRAIL) has announced about introduction of responsible gambling principles. The integration of the principles of responsible gaming is due to the need to reduce the negative impact of gambling. The rules developed by KRAIL should prevent the spread of gambling addiction and the involvement of minors in gambling. These principles come into force in Ukraine.
So far, 8 main guidelines have been approved. Operators must take them into account when working in the Ukraine. First, each client must be verified. This will help establish the age of the player and reduce the risk of scams. Gambling companies are also prohibited from encouraging players to lose offering various promotions and bonuses.
In addition, the list of principles of responsible play includes:
– restriction of the player from gambling by the operator if necessary;
– possibility of self-limitation by the client;
– prevention of gambling addiction;
– constant informing of clients;
– training of staff who should be professional and knowledgeable in gambling;
– social interaction.
KRAIL draws the attention of operators to the fact that non-compliance with these principles will lead to serious reputational losses.
It is also worth mentioning that Parimatch Ukraine launches a large-scale platform dedicated to Responsible Gambling:Heart for support – brain for the game! as part of a global strategy to support the principles of responsible gaming.
