As part of its commitment to promoting responsible gambling in Washington, Maverick Gaming has reported that it has made a donation of $194,381 to the Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling (ECPG).
The Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing resources and initiatives through treatment assistance, awareness and education, advocacy, research, and prevention efforts for problem gamblers, their families, employers, teachers, treatment providers, and the broader community.
Maureen Greeley, executive director of the Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling said: “The Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling applauds Maverick Gaming for their steadfast partnership in supporting responsible gambling practices and policies.
“As the leading organisation dedicated to education, prevention, treatment, recovery and front-line responsible gambling training in gaming environments, we cannot be successful without our great partners in Washington’s gaming industry. We look forward to continued collaboration with Maverick Gaming well into the future.”
In Washington, Maverick Gaming runs 19 card rooms, as well as the Wendover Nugget, Red Garter Hotel, Nevada’s Red Lion Casino and Gold Country Casino, and three Colorado properties.
Eric Persson. Maverick Gaming CEO and co-founder said: “A core value of Maverick Gaming is providing a fun, safe entertainment choice for our customers, the vast majority of which enjoy gaming responsibly.
“The fact that problem gambling and addiction is rare does not affect our approach to programs, policies and efforts that ensure those who struggle with problem gambling have access to the help they need.
“We are proud to be a market leader in enforcing self-exclusion policies across all our locations and recognize the Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling as a crucial partner in upholding a fun and safe environment for gaming in our state.”
Washington has passed a law requiring the State Gambling Commission to finalise for approved card rooms a state-wide self-exclusion scheme.
