GamCare Launches New Online Community

UK betting sites have been at the forefront of the push to ensure that responsible gambling practices are embedded into every element of industry operations.

With that in mind, GamCare’s recent launch of a new ‘Online Community’ designed to support problem gamblers is excellent news for the sector.

The platform allows users to connect with others online, while an enhanced anonymous chatroom function will offer further levels of support.

The forum and chatroom will be supervised and moderated by trained advisors of the National Gambling Helpline, thus ensuring GamCare will continue to offer the highest levels of service.

BetGoodwin Henlow Maiden Derby Semi-Finals Take Centre-Stage

BetGoodwin’s sponsorship of the Henlow Maiden Derby has helped to raise the profile of a competition that features some of the rising stars of the greyhound world.

This year’s event has reached the semi-final stage, with the races scheduled to be run as part of a bumper card at the Bedfordshire track on Sunday evening.

The John Mullins-trained Bombay the Joker is the 6/5 favourite with BetGoodwin to win the Maiden Derby and will be tough to beat in the first semi-final this weekend.

A time of 27.23 in the previous round was miles quicker than any of his rivals produced and Mullins’ charge looks a good bet to continue his rise up the ranks.
