The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA), has announced it will be hosting another Responsible Gaming Day following last year's inaugural success. To be hosted in Brussels tomorrow (February 17, 2009), the intent of the event is to promulgate greater awareness amongst gaming operators about responsible gaming standards, not to mention corruption and fraudulent activities that often plague certain sectors of the betting industry.

To be discussed this time around will be the topics of academics, sports betting and online gambling. Specifically, the sessions will examine whether internet betting is more or less conducive to operator integrity, and how to address the many issues and risks that bookmakers confront, including the ethics of Sport and Bookmaking itself. Tapped to speak at the conference is EGBA Chairman and Bwin CEO Norbert Teufelberger, UK Gambling Commission Chairman, Brian Pomeroy, the European Commission Head of Unit/Sport and Party Gaming's Director of Regulatory Compliance.

Expected to be in attendance to help facilitate discussions are numerous gambling researchers and professors from esteemed universities, including Harvard delegates. Online sports betting business operators as well as political representatives from European jurisdictions are also likely to attend, as invitations to do so have been sent out.

Focusing on player protection and ethical codes of conduct for the gaming sector, the EGBA hopes the conference will clear up any misconceptions about the status of certain online gambling activities in specific jurisdictions - not to mention foster a feeling of well being in operators seeking to expand their services into new European markets. As there is recent anti-online gambling legislation that has been drawn up by some EU member States, the EGBA has pledged to fight it on the grounds that such legislation is merely for protecting gambling monopolies.
