TapOut: Safer gambling message on screens this season

As a partner of BeGambleAware, the FSA is once again pleased to support the work of the leading safer gambling organisation with the Bet Regret campaign.

As the new season picks up steam, the campaign is back on air encouraging supporters who bet on the match to tap out of their betting app and pause, take a moment to think so they can avoid Bet Regret.

Bet Regret is the sinking feeling you get the minute you make a bet without thinking it through. Often when drunk, bored or chasing losses.

The Tap Out adverts are aiming to educate supporters about addictive smartphone technologies that lead to impulsive gambling, and encourage users to take a break from their phones. It’s a major awareness campaign running across TV, radio, and social media.

FSA deputy chief executive David Rose said: “The new season brings with it a lot of hope and excitement for fans as we return to full grounds.

“But it’s important that fans don’t let their gambling get away from them which is why we’re supporting the Tap Out message. We’re asking supporters to take a moment and think twice.”

This is the third season that the FSA and BeGambleAware have been working together to promote the safer gambler message among football supporters, and spreading the Tap Out message to FSA members and our wider audience is the latest part of that.
