More Than Just a Casino: 888 Helping the Community

Published May 24, 2014 by OCR Editor

888 Casino plays an active role in the community; both giving to charities and protecting minors from gambling.

888 Casino has taken a leading role in acknowledging the impact of its business on several different and varied facets of life. From the environment, protecting minors, donations to charity and generally being socially responsible.

888 Green

888 admit that due to its nature as a largely online business its carbon-footprint is smaller than many other businesses. That does not mean, however, that they not aware of what they do consume as a business and how they attempt to minimize the impact. There is a committee that looks at ways of tackling waste, office paper use, recycling and other environmental issues. This is an on-going challenge, to keep the environmental impact to the barest level.

888 Community

888 do not believe that its responsibilities stop at the wider environment, either. One of the key areas is protecting minors from gambling at their site. On the 888responsible section of its website, it has a checklist of things that parents or guardians can do to discourage children and particularly teenagers from gambling. They have sophisticated systems in place to try and counteract underage gambling, but they cannot be full-proof in every situation. 

888 also want to give back to the community and have in place community aid projects in the UK, Antigua, Gibraltar and Israel. Employees volunteer time to the projects and 888 matches the employee time contribution.

888 Responsible Play

Ultimately, 888 is a business whose income is derived from gambling. This is freely acknowledged, as well as the fact that the very large majority of players enjoy and derive relaxation from having an occasional, or even daily gamble. 888 is aware that sometimes that enjoyment can lead to problem-gambling, a situation that they wish to avoid. Their Responsible Gaming Policy and a safe and secure gaming environment are two of the ways that 888 hope to maintain the positive balance.
