PlayOJO have had our fair share of wacky Safer Gambling campaigns over the years – anything that gets the crowd’s attention, right?

We’ve sent out thousands of condoms in the name of “Safe Bets”, gave away time capsules packed full of prizes, and even partnered with Gemma Collins to launch a faux fragrance highlighting that problem gambling is the ‘addiction with no smell’. There ain’t no mountain too high for PlayOJO in the name of Safer Gambling.

This year, PlayOJO’s spanking new Safer Gambling campaign is called ‘Too much of ANYTHING can be bad”. From too much sun, to too much sleep and even too much bath-time, we’ve set out to demonstrate the most extreme and silly cases of when too much of a good thing can turn bad, with four funny video skits.

What’s more, you also have a chance to win a Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, a Samsung Galaxy S23 mobile phone, and a JBL Charge 5 Portable Speaker in our Safer Gambling giveaway. Read on for details on that…

Safer Gambling Month

It’s always a good idea to check in on your gambling habits. So much so that we have an entire month dedicated to promoting the importance of Safer Gambling, all centering around Safer Gambling Week itself (13th – 19th November 2023).

The entire gaming industry comes together as one to promote this ever-important topic, which is relevant for anyone who likes to gamble.

PlayOJO’s ‘Too much of ANYTHING can be bad’ Safer Gambling campaign is how we’re using that age-old “everything in moderation” lesson to teach players about the dangers of excessive gambling, which we’ve demonstrated with a series of rather hilarious video skits…

‘Too much of ANYTHING is bad’

We’ve all been told at some point that eating carrots is good for our eyesight. But before you start munching away on that family bag of carrots, you should also know that eating too many carrots could actually turn your skin orange! Even a healthy diet can turn bad in excess…

Bubbles, candles, aromatherapy oils… mmm, there’s nothing more relaxing than a long soak in the bath… well, that is until your skin does a fast-forward fifty years and you find yourself staring back at the future wrinkly you… ‘ello there old chum!

And how about if we told you that too much sleep can affect your physical health? That’s right, too much of ANYTHING can be a bad thing, and you wouldn’t want to miss a very important date because you overslept, would you now?

Nothing beats that healthy post-holiday glow to show off at work. But why opt for the “kiss from a thousand hot irons” look over more attractive welcome home greetings, eh?

And excessive time indoors has its downfalls too…

Has that new Netflix series kept you glued to the screen and the sofa for days? Keeping yourself holed up for too long without human contact can leave you feeling, well… a little vampiric…

Like to spice up your life with extra flavour in your fave dish? There’s everything right with the delight of unexpected flavours, but get carried away, and you could really find yourself in the hot seat.

But too much of anything can often be a bad thing. Can’t get through the morning without a coffee? Too much caffeine can make you go a bit loopy-Lou, as demonstrated in Exhibit A…
