FanDuel marks Responsible Gaming Education Month with new Investments
To mark Responsible Gaming Education Month, Flutter’s FanDuel – America’s number one sportsbook – is making major investments in its responsible gaming advocacy efforts with the additions of global soccer icon Carli Lloyd and PGA TOUR rising star Tom Kim, who will join FanDuel’s RG Ambassador Craig Carton this season.
FanDuel is also introducing a comprehensive series of new initiatives that will leverage a unique combination of talent, content and partnerships to further the company’s efforts to educate fans on the importance of playing responsibly.
New Responsible Gaming Ambassadors
Soccer icon Carli Lloyd and rising golf star Tom Kim are the newest FanDuel Responsible Gaming Ambassadors. Both Lloyd and Kim will partner with FanDuel to raise awareness of the importance of responsible play and the tools that FanDuel provides to fans to manage their play, including deposit limits, wager limits, time limits and more. They will appear in future responsible gaming content and join Carton, as well as NFL legend Rob Gronkowski and Kay Adams, Host of FanDuel TV’s Up & Adams, in bespoke advertising to promote responsible play.
New Responsible Gaming Content
This month, FanDuel will premiere its new responsible gaming advertising campaign. FanDuel’s first bespoke television creative entitled “The System” is back but with a new iteration created by FanDuel’s internal creative team. Part two of the multi-media campaign is backed by significant media investment and will air throughout the football season. The advertising heroes FanDuel’s Play Well tools like wager and time limits that customers can set up for responsible gaming play.
FanDuel also recently paired Carton, host of FS1’s The Carton Show, with NFL legend Rob Gronkowski and FanDuel TV host Kay Adams together on new responsible gaming content for fans, including a candid podcast style discussion about problem gambling and its associated risks. The trio will also be featured in a new social series entitled “FanDuel FanDial” where they will be surprising fans with live video calls. During the calls, the trio will walk fans through the self-service responsible gaming tools available on the platform. All content will be featured on FanDuel social media channels in the coming weeks.
Educational Course with Front Office Sports
FanDuel has announced it is partnering with Front Office Sports to launch a groundbreaking, and first of its kind, free responsible gaming educational course housed within Front Office Sports’ Learning platform in early 2024. The course will cover the fundamentals of responsible play and the ever-changing sportsbook industry. Upon completion, visitors will be able to add a badge to their LinkedIn profiles and feature the certification on their resumes. Those interested in signing up can visit fos-learning.com.
FanDuel’s Second Annual Play Well Day
On September 26, FanDuel will hold its second annual Play Well Day, hosted in New York City and broadcast to employees across the globe. This employee-only event will focus on the company’s commitment to building a culture that is always focused on customer protection. Play Well Day will include all-day seminars with FanDuel executives, industry leaders and our RG Ambassadors, all of whom will discuss the everyday role each employee plays in promoting safer play for fans.
Alison Kutler, Vice President of Sustainability and Responsible Gaming at FanDuel, said:“FanDuel remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting responsible gaming, and we’re thrilled to be rolling out this series of programming to mark Responsible Gaming Education Month. Bringing Carli and Tom on as RG ambassadors who can spread the message of safer play combined with debuting new advertising, social media content and a Front Office Sports training, highlight how we want to elevate the standard for operator efforts on responsible gaming.”
