Responsible Gaming Forum Held in Spain Considered Successful
Spain lawmakers have organized a forum which refers to responsible gambling in the European country. Two hundred people have attended the forum, where problems regarding gambling were discussed. The themes that were approached referred to problems of addiction, protection of underage teenagers that might access gambling sites and players’ rights. Members of the forum also brought in discussion the Spanish Responsible Gambling Advisory, which refers to an agreement between legislators and casino software development companies, as well as online gambling sites’ owners, showing that operators must do their best to help fight the negative parts that the gaming and betting industry can sometimes bring to the society.
According to information gathered by CasinoWebscripts, Miguel Ferre, Secretary of Finance, expressed the idea that this forum was designed to make the society be more aware of the fact that responsible gaming is a task which must be accomplished by every gambler and should be taken seriously by everyone who is involved in the industry. Online gambling is a profitable business in Spain, which has generated €1.4 million in the last four months of 2012, with no less than 1 million gamblers who access online casinos in the European country, making it an advantageous location for online casino business ventures.
