How do they work?

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn recently visited the Ladbrokes shop situated on Chesterfield Road to meet the staff and find out how betting shops work having never visited one before. The shop has 3 full time and 2 part-time employees and Meg found out that they are trained to spot people who are at risk from gambling addiction and give advice.   

 

She met Richard Royal, Public Affairs Manager, who explained that Ladbrokes is the world’s largest betting company, employing 14,000 people and they have around 2,000 shops in the UK.  A majority of the bets placed are for horse racing events, with football betting increasing rapidly.

 

Richard highlighted to Meg some stigmas that surround the industry, saying there are many misconceptions about what betting shops are like and the atmosphere they create.  Ladbrokes is committed to promoting responsible gambling and have a scheme to help people beat the addiction.

 

Meg Said:

 

‘This was my first time in a betting shop, and I was glad to see they encourage responsible gambling and provide advice services for people who are at risk.  I understand they are very strict on checking people’s ID’s, and have a log book for under 21s, who visit the branch.’
