Caesars Entertainment will donate over $1million to the U.S. National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) and other third-party organizations accountable for gambling.
The gift commemorates the 30th anniversary of the accountable gambling program of the operator, which has trained more than 4,000 ambassadors.
Through the commitment, Caesars will contribute to the new study fund of the NCRG with the aim of increasing the efficiency of accountable gambling methods in the context of expanding legal, controlled sports betting in the US.
Jan Jones Blackhurst, Caesars ‘ executive vice president of public policy and corporate responsibility, said:
“Thirty years ago, Caesars Entertainment took the initiative to create the first responsible gaming program, serving our guests who could no longer play for fun.
“We were determined to provide meaningful solutions for problem and underage gaming. We view responsible gaming as the concern of all Caesars’ team members; it is central to how we operate as a business.”
The American Gaming Association is hosting Responsible Gaming Education Week in Las Vegas this week in an effort to boost research and debate on the topic.
