Marketing: The foundations of a more responsible industry?

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Marketing: The foundations of a more responsible industry? Paula Pusey looks at the growing scrutiny on gambling marketing and why it may be an opportunity rather than a threatLast week the Gambling Commission (GC) published updated rules on advertising, pledging to take “tougher action” against businesses that contravene the fair and open licensing objective.The stricter stance came hot on the heels of the controversial Italian blanket ban on sports betting advertising and sponsorship, and there is no let up from the mainstream media either.In June the Mirror ran a front page story about a 13-year-old boy managing to run up £80,000 of gambling debts after seeing promotions at a football match.If the power of advertising was ever in doubt, the World Cup resulted in booming business with £2.5bn wagered in the UK alone during the tournament.Data from research firm YouGov suggests that in the region of six million adults placed bets during the tournament and two million new accounts were opened. Much of that increase in betting is being attributed to sponsorship and advertising.Radio 4’s You and Yours programme analysed the commercial breaks of 11 games broadcast on ITV and found that 62 of the 66 ad breaks during those games included at least one gambling advert. In addition, the ASA are said to be investigating some 115 complaints.The GC consultation resulted in an unprecedented 81 responses from consumers leading to changes to the licence conditions and codes of practice (LCCP), which will take effect from 31 October 2018.Working alongside the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP), the GC pledges to ensure promotions are fair, are not misleading and are not targeted at vulnerable people.They also state that they will be placing emphasis on ensuring consumers don’t receive spam marketing by email or SMS and that licensees are responsible for the actions of third parties, including marketing affiliates.Commenting on the findings at the time, Gambling Commission chief executive Neil McArthur said: “Protecting the interests of consumers is a priority for us and needs to be a priority for gambling operators.These changes will protect consumers from irresponsible advertising and misleading promotions, ensure that they can withdraw their money more easily, and will mean that firms have to deal with complaints more swiftly.”Wiggin partner and gaming law specialist Stephen Ketteley said despite criticism some feeling the GC has started to encroach on the roles of other UK regulatory bodies, a multi-agency approach to consumer protection is most likely to make the gambling industry up its game.“Operators will, however, be nervous about the possibility of the Commission punishing them on the back of decisions by the ASA, which many continue to view as subjective,” he said.“This is likely to be a potential source of friction and it will be interesting to see if the Commission reserves this card only for the more flagrant breaches of the advertising codes.”There is plenty of evidence that operators are taking this very seriously and viewing it as a huge opportunity for gambling businesses to bring in a new era of responsible or even mindful gambling culture.Last year Sky Betting & Gaming pioneered putting social responsibility at the centre of their campaigns with TV adverts featuring Geoff Stelling addressing the viewer directly for the full 30-second advert talking about when the fun stops stop.As Ketteley put it: “The reality is that responsible operators have been prioritising compliance projects in many of the areas referred to above for some time now in recognition of the inevitable regulatory headwinds.“For those operators who remain behind the curve, the changes to the LCCP further demonstrate that the regulator is committed to raising standards and following through on its tougher enforcement strategy to achieve that goal – its toolkit has just got larger.”The GC has acknowledged the willingness of some operators to listen to and act on consumers’ concerns and the need for customers to be able to differentiate between providers on the basis of customer care and values.In such a competitive market this is an important point. The customer base is changing and more discerning players will gravitate towards operators they believe they can trust.As is always the case when it comes to player protection and social responsibility, the issues surrounding responsible marketing are complex. They require collaboration from stakeholders across the industry including regulators, operators, developers, legal professionals, consumers and supporting charities.Will Ridley, brand executive at Sky Betting & Gaming and chair of the Young People and Student Advisory Group for YGAM says: “We need to continue to find innovative ways to protect children and young people with the rise of smartphone usage, social media and online gambling and gaming.Protecting young people with age-related marketing content and adverts that do not appeal to children is just the start. It’s time for us to open the debate with young people around how they use smart phones and what content they see.”     Now is the time for the industry to address these promotional issues and avoid other jurisdictions taking the sort of extreme action we have seen in Italy. It’s an exciting opportunity for business to continue to boom in a sustainable, responsible and ethical way.Paula Pusey is founder and managing director at events and gambling compliance  consultancy KnowNow Ltd. The Gambling Commission, CAP and industry experts from the likes of Sky Betting & Gaming and Wiggin LLP will be at the next KnowNow event, Responsible Marketing for Gambling Operators, in London on 3rd October. It will take an in-depth look at responsible marketing and how to make the most of these opportunities. www.knownowltd.com.

After his brilliant all round show in the opening game for Sharukh Khan’s Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR), Narine slammed his second consecutive half century. Riding on the scintillating batting by Narine, TKR easily defeated Jamaica Tallawahs to register 2nd victory in CPL 2020.  2020 HERO CARIBBEAN PREMIER LEAGUE – MATCH REPORT 6Trinbago Knight Riders 136/3 (Narine 53, Munro 49*, DM Bravo 14; Mujeeb 1/13, Edwards 1/19, Lamichhane 1/30) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 135/8 (Phillips 58, Russell 25, Asif 22; Seales 2/21, Ali Khan 2/25, Fawad 1/18, Narine 1/19) by 7 wicketsA fine all-round bowling display saw Trinbago Knight Riders win the battle of the unbeaten teams and go to the top of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) table. Glenn Phillips was the only standout for the Jamaica Tallawahs as the power-hitters struggled for fluency, and Sunil Narine’s second consecutive 50 did the bulk of the work even as the Knight Riders took their time about the chase.Ali Khan and Jayden Seales started superbly after Knight Riders captain Kieron Pollard put the Tallawahs in. Walton spliced Ali Khan to square leg and Kirton was trapped in front by Seales – remarkably, this was the first LBW of Hero CPL 2020.

The Tallawahs crawled to 63/4 at halfway, and it got worse when a Fawad googly completely deceived Brathwaite. The leg-spinner’s first two overs tonight contained a remarkable 11 dot balls.Phillips broke the spell off Fawad to come out of his post-Powerplay slump and reach 50 off 34 balls. The Tallawahs were careful to see off Narine, but at 90/5 with six overs to come, the acceleration had to come at some point, and once Phillips fell trying to whip Seales over deep square leg the onus was all on Russell.Ali Khan delivered a near-perfect over, closing by nearly holding a spectacular return catch off a ferocious drive from Ramaal Lewis, who came into the Tallawahs XI for Veerasammy Permaul. In truth the American was lucky to escape with his teeth intact.Thanks to a fine diving catch at mid-off from Colin Munro, a restless Russell fell having faced a good number of deliveries for under a run a ball for the second game running. Remarkably, he hasn’t yet hit a six in this year’s Hero CPL.The final over saw Fidel Edwards, into the team for Oshane Thomas for his first Hero CPL game since 2015, run out as he sacrificed himself to save Lewis, but the all-rounder couldn’t manage a boundary. Ali Khan and Dwayne Bravo’s death bowling was outstanding, and the Tallawahs total felt sub-par.Edwards and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman troubled the top order, with Lendl Simmons losing his shape off the paceman and gifting a catch to mid-off. After 4 overs the Tallawahs had Trinbago nerves jangling, but Narine’s eyes lit up when inexperienced off-spinner Lewis came into the attack. 14 runs came off the over, Munro and Narine both drove Russell for four through cover, and 38/1 off the Powerplay meant things were much calmer in the Knight Riders dugout.Narine has built his reputation as a hitter of spin, but he was severe on the pace of Russell, with the highlight an impudent inside-out four on one leg. He brought up a 35-ball 50 off the last ball of the 10th over, at which point the Knight Riders needed just 71 off 60 with nine wickets in hand.Munro’s was a curious innings – he managed just 16 off his first 24 balls, but 14 of them were boundaries, and it wasn’t until the 17th over that he breached a run a ball. This all-or-nothing approach was a feature of the chase, and the Knight Riders will want to address their high dot-ball percentage as they move through the tournament.Mujeeb was excellent, and deserves huge credit for holding a skied return catch off Darren Bravo despite keeper Phillips nearly taking him out with a full-length dive. But Narine’s belligerence and Munro’s anchor role meant that, although the Tallawahs will rue a few missed opportunities, the Knight Riders always had the chase firmly under control.This sense of ease was underlined when Pollard had time to block out an Edwards over in an ultimately vain attempt to steer Munro to 50, and the Knight Riders go into the weekend sitting pretty atop the standings.
