This impactful campaign spanned major social media platforms, experiencing an extraordinary 430% surge in engagement. The campaign delivered crucial safer gambling messages, translated into over 20 national languages, offering practical resources like safety tools and tips to players and the wider public.

In addition to its online presence, the initiative featured 18 localised events across Europe, each themed around safer gambling. These events became discussion forums led by industry experts, academics, harm-prevention organisations, and representatives from national gambling authorities.
