In addition, industry station Radio Sport National is broadcasting it Prime Time Sports Interactive program from Geelong Racecourse on Friday in a special edition to spread the message about betting responsibly.
Importance of Responsible Gambling
While there is a higher level of awareness than in the past about the importance of betting wisely, it is still in your interests to check whether the online casino or sports book you use promotes your safety and is certified by independent authorities such as eCOGRA, the e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance body.
All the casinos and bookies recommended on our website have been certified, which means that you can place online wagers at AllYouBet, William Hill, Betfair, 888Sport and many more in the knowledge that they have made a commitment to responsible gaming.
But don't forget, above all, you as the customer must also make the same commitment to yourself.
