The Ghana Gaming Commission has received modernized IT equipment from betPawa in order to establish a Responsible Gaming Call Center at the Commission.
The intervention, which arrives just days after the company was announced as the headline sponsor for the Ghana Premier League, is part of the leading online betting and gaming company’s responsible gaming agenda, which aims to educate people about the importance of viewing betting as a form of entertainment and betting only what they can afford.
“As a brand, we place a lot of importance on responsible gaming,” Mr Eazi, founder and stakeholder of betPawa emphasized. “It is an undeniable fact that sport betting can be addictive. betPawa will do everything above ourselves to help put in the necessary infrastructure to ensure that no one suffers any harm through gaming, hence the setup of the Responsible Gaming Call Center”.
There are other tried-and-tested practices such as self-exclusion to help customers who are concerned about their betting. Visit www.betpawa.com.gh/responsible-gambling or contact the new Call Center on 0540559406 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily for specialized and compassionate assistance.
On his side, the Commissioner of the Gaming Commission, Mr. Peter Mireku commended highly the gesture from betPawa and encouraged other sport betting operators to take similar action.

These CSR activities include the Dream Maker and WIN BIG, Give Back campaigns among many others.
