UK – Passport Technology continues commitment in supporting problem gambling charity GamCare

By - 3 November 2020

In a continuous effort to support responsible gambling, Passport Technology proudly donates an aggregated £7,000 to GamCare, UK’s leading charity supporting anyone affected by problem gambling. With this donation, Passport has contributed over £30,000 in an effort to support the gaming community and patrons.

As an independent charity, donations are vital in extending GamCare’s work to minimise gambling-related harms in Great Britain, including support for those affected by problem gambling through advice and treatment. GamCare operates the National Gambling HelpLine for anyone, including family members, affected by problem gambling across England, Scotland, and Wales, funded by GambleAware.

GamCare’s Advisers answer more than 30,000 calls each year; their website receives around 2 million visitors, and their national treatment network treats around 10,000 people each year. The continued support the HelpLine provides is extremely important, as almost half of callers disclose negative impacts on their mental wellbeing.

“Passport Technology’s donation options are the first and only of its kind in this industry,” states Kurt Sullivan, President of Passport Technology. “Prior to engaging the casino floor, we present customers an opportunity to reach out for help through self-exclusion utilities and the opportunity to support the local community through donations. We want everyone to have a good time, we also want to ensure that the good time is done responsibly.”

Passport Technology’s innovative cash access solutions benefit dozens of casinos across the UK, Europe, and Canada. Our multi-jurisdictional payment platform solution delivers the highest levels of security, compliance, privacy, and AML, demonstrating a commitment to providing purposeful, socially responsible functionality never before available in the casino payments industry.
