Abstract
The underlying objective of a socially responsible gambling code of conduct is to maximise opportunity and minimise harm. This should also adhere to the established principle of moving forward with caution. Social responsibility should adhere to ethical principles and is becoming a regulatory requirement in an increasing number of countries. Furthermore, it is expected by many customers who want to play with companies who show a high level of integrity. This is particularly relevant to online gaming where trust in the website and the operator is essential.
