The Dolphins have joined forces with partner OK2PLAY? to recognise the importance of Gambling Harm Awareness Week, which runs from July 24-30th.
Gambling Harm Awareness Week is an opportunity to become aware of the risks associated with problem gambling, and the significance of collaboration between the government, industry, and the community to foster a safer environment for those at risk of gambling harm.
OK2PLAY? is a world-leading Responsible Gambling Technology which provides members, and the community the speed of support to make sure they can enjoy themselves in a safe environment.
By championing responsible gambling practices and harnessing the power of innovative technologies, both OK2PLAY? and the Dolphins are striving to create a club and community that prioritises the safety and support of its members.
Bryan Te Wani, CEO of OK2PLAY?, said the partnership with the Dolphins was a ground-breaking opportunity to remove the stigma and raise the level of conversation.
"Responsible Gambling Technology is not just a buzzword; it is a commitment we hold dear. As CEO of OK2PLAY?, I am proud to announce our unwavering support for Gambling Awareness Week in Queensland,” said Te Wani.
“Most importantly, our partners at the Dolphins NRL club understand the importance of fostering a safe and responsible gambling environment, where individuals can enjoy themselves in a safe place to play.
That is why we are even more proud to have the Dolphins NRL club as the first national sports team in Australia to support our Responsible Gambling Technology.
By championing responsible gambling practices and utilising our innovative technologies, we aim to create a club and community that prioritises the well-being of its members.
Together, we can make a significant impact and ensure that the excitement does not impact the individual.”
Dolphins’ Chief Executive, Terry Reader said the partnership with OK2PLAY? would have a beneficial effect for the community.
“Through the partnership with OK2PLAY?, the Dolphins are setting the example and emphasising the importance of collaboration to ensure enjoyment does not come at the expense of the community and an individual’s wellbeing,” said Reader.
