Responsible gambling

At Rank, we believe that gambling should be a fun and social form
of entertainment.

Nevertheless, we recognise that a small proportion of people may find it difficult to control their gambling activities.

We have put in place a system of measures to minimise the incidence of problem gambling in our businesses and to support our employees in managing it when it does occur.

Rank is committed to upholding the three licensing objectives of the Gambling Act 2005:

  • protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling;
  • preventing gambling from being a source of crime or disorder, being associated with crime or disorder or being used to support crime; and
  • ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way.

Oversight

The following procedures have been put in place to guide our responsible gambling policies:

  • bi-annual discussions at meetings of the Rank board;
  • bi-annual discussions at Rank’s Audit committee meetings;
  • quarterly meeting of responsible gambling review committee; and
  • quarterly meeting of anti-money laundering review committee.

In addition, our senior managers are encouraged to invest time in liaising with those organisations that provide counselling and support for people with gambling-related problems.
