Taking Corporate Responsibility Seriously
As Gala Interactive is part of the Ladbrokes Coral Group, Corporate Responsibility underpins the way the division conducts itself with its customers, partners and the local community.
Our approach to Corporate Responsibility focuses on the key areas of responsible gambling, community engagement and environmental stewardship.
In 2007 Ladbrokes Coral Group was the first gaming and betting group in the UK to be fully accredited by GamCare across all of our businesses. We’ve worked with GamCare for a number of years now in order to encourage responsible gambling behaviour.
In Gibraltar we will be working closely with the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority to ensure Gala Interactive continues to uphold the highest regulatory standards and with the Gibraltar Government Office to become a partner in the local community.
Meanwhile to ensure we meet our environmental commitments, we will also aim to constantly assess and monitor the impact of our business on the resources we use.
Our Approach to Responsible Gaming
At Gala Coral Interactive we take responsible gambling very seriously. We think gambling should be fun, and that is our business. However, if gambling becomes a problem for someone then we believe it should be addressed.
That’s why we spend time and effort trying to protect those who may be vulnerable to letting their gambling run away from them. We work to the letter of the law and in accordance with its spirit to help our players gamble responsibly.
The number of problem gamblers may be very small, but even one is too many, so we play an active role in supporting and developing harm reduction strategies across the industry alongside actively reviewing our own business practices.
This includes working closely with the industry to develop a new Code for Responsible Gaming plus imposing extra safeguards on our gaming machines such as Spend Limits, Time Limits and staff trained to detect the signs of potential problem gambling and interact effectively with those involved.
These are just some of the measures we take towards minimising problem gambling. The gambling sector is a highly regulated and responsible industry. We operate under strict rules imposed by the Gambling Commission and local authorities.
