Skip nav on the Front Foot of Responsible Betting

Online financial bookmakers BetsForTraders were once again ahead of the game when they wisely chose to launch their operation in the Isle of Man, specifically due to the island’s responsible betting laws and rigorous licensing regime.

Amendments to the Gambling Act 2005, tabled in Parliament today, will ban more than a thousand betting websites that operate outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and do not meet the UK’s strict regulatory standards from advertising in the UK from 1 September 2007.

Ryan Kneale, Market Analyst for BetsForTraders, comments: “The Isle Man had to pass stringent assessment of its regulatory standards before the jurisdiction was placed on the ‘white list’, granting it an exemption from this ban. The ‘white list’ has been long anticipated and I am really pleased that we pre-empted this situation by launching BetsForTraders on the island.

“In addition, the Isle of Man has strict laws designed to stop children betting, protect vulnerable people and adhere to fair gaming rules, which was particularly important to our company ethos and values.”

BetsForTraders attracts both aspiring and experienced traders from all walks of life who are market-savvy and confident. However, the company recognises the importance of promoting responsible betting and has had a detailed corporate social responsibility policy in place from the outset.

Ryan concludes: "We are in the money business and our clients are knowledgeable and self-assured in their dealings. Nonetheless it is vitally important to us that all our clients have an optimal experience with BetsForTraders at all times."
