Lee-Willows-3 YGAM founders say the Experts By Experience strategy could achieve more with a diverse spread of perspectivesReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Lee Willows, Chief Executive and co-founder of YGAM, the charity which works to inform, educate and safeguard young people against gaming and gambling-related harm, has proposed that Experts by Experience initiatives might warrant a range of different voices that are representative of the totality of the gambling experience in order to be fully-inclusive in their insight and decision making. 

Acknowledging the important role that initiatives based on personal insight, knowledge and understanding can play, he said: “It is pleasing to see more contributions made from people with direct experience of the tragic harm that gambling can cause some individuals, such as the YGAM Founders. Lived Experience or what the Commission is terming ‘Experts by Experience’ is a really important part of the conversation.  My position is that Lived Experience must include a chorus of different voices and not just those who have experienced gambling disorder, but who represent the wider player spectrum. Personally, as someone who lost everything to a gambling addiction, I am always grateful for the opportunity to contribute my insight and experiences as such a level of inclusion would have been unheard of five-years ago.”

He continued: “Surely it’s important to understand how and why the vast majority of people who gamble can do so without experiencing a problem, as well as the reasons why some will develop significant and profound gambling related problems? If we accept the vast majority of people gamble within their means and with no adverse consequences, then understanding why this happens is just as useful as understanding why people like I cannot. By taking this much broader approach it would be amazing if different people within the debate can find some common themes to focus on and move forward in a progressive and non-judgemental way.”

Anne Evans, YGAM founder said recently: “I believe we are moving in the right direction and there are some extremely talented people working hard to make a difference. There will always be a wide spectrum of opinions on what needs to be done to reduce gambling harms and all these views should be welcomed. There is no perfect solution. We need a diverse spread of perspectives to engage in the debate. We must respect all the different views and always be kind.”

Fumiko Hayashi, the mayor of Yokohama city, has committed to respect the results of a public referendum that will decide whether the city will compete to host an integrated resort.

The mayor said: “If the referendum as to IR takes place and the majority votes for opposition, I would act as in accordance with the results.”

Opponents campaigning against the IR plans collected voter signatures to trigger a referendum on the issue. A bill to permit the referendum will be submitted to the city’s council early next year.

On October 13, authorities in Yokohama announced a fresh request-for-concept (RFC) phase for its proposed IR bid to take revised proposals from potential private partners following the central government’s publication of its basic policy document on IR. This RFC will run until the end of November.

Football Index, a regulated online gambling platform that allows consumers to trade on the future success of football players, has joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) as an affiliate member. Football Index launched in 2015 and operates under licences from the British and Jersey Gambling Commissions. It is the official shirt sponsor of Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers football clubs. IBIA’s affiliate membership allows organisations whose business model may differ from the association’s core sportsbook members to be part of the association and to participate in some of its betting integrity activities.

Khalid Ali, IBIA’s CEO said: “I am delighted to welcome Football Index to IBIA. The company’s operation may differ from traditional sportsbooks, but it is no less committed to maintaining the integrity of its product and the sporting events on which it is based. Football Index’s integrity ethos therefore aligns with IBIA’s and its membership is another example of the association’s wide-ranging appeal and burgeoning roster of companies engaging with it globally.”

Neil Kelly, CEO of BetIndex said: “Maintaining the integrity of our business has always been, and remains, paramount to Football Index. Our customers have come to expect a high level of product security which we are determined to continue delivering. As such, we are thrilled to join the IBIA. The association’s wide recognition as the preeminent global sports betting integrity body makes it the ideal partner for Football Index, as we strive to further place the integrity of our product at the heart of our business operations.”

The International Betting Integrity Association is the leading global voice on integrity for the licensed betting industry. It is run by operators for operators, protecting its members from corruption through collective action. Its monitoring and alert platform is a highly effective anti-corruption tool that detects and reports suspicious activity on its members’ betting markets. The association has longstanding information sharing partnerships with leading sports and gambling regulators to utilise its data and prosecute corruption. It represents the sector at high-level policy discussion forums such as the IOC, UN, Council of Europe and European Commission.
