Social Responsibility

All countries that have gambling have to an extent measures in place to ensure that children are excluded and that addiction is tackled as part of the offering – not as a bolt on service. In The UGA we believe that as gambling is opened up in the country so measures to treat problem gamblers can be rolled out simultaneously.

At present there is already gambling in various forms in Ukraine – notably lotteries and online gambling – and yet no provision for problem gambling exists. We believe this should be remedied with new measures to offer advice and counseling paid from licensing fees.
