In confirmation of HBG Gaming’s commitment to promoting responsible gaming and the prevention of problem gambling, there are many upcoming and scheduled activities. Some of the most important are listed below:
“GIOCA CON LA TESTA” (Play Sensibly) is a blog created with the intention of promoting a healthy and responsible gaming culture, and preventing pathological, and potentially dangerous, behaviour. A blog is a communicative resource which allows us to reach out to an ever-expanding audience. It facilitates dialogue and interaction with people, whilst providing advice and suggestions aimed at ensuring that gaming is, and remains, a form of entertainment and leisure that does not escalate into addiction.
