Responsible Gaming: Our Commitment. Every Day.

By American Gaming Assocation

As we approach Responsible Gaming Education Week (RGEW), recognized by the industry July 31 – August 4, the American Gaming Association (AGA) and its members understand that it’s more than a weeklong event: It’s our commitment. Every day.

We encourage the casino gaming industry to use this week to reiterate foundational and evergreen responsible gaming education, programming and awareness with employees, patrons, policymakers, regulators and the public at large.

Enhanced materials for RGEW are available on our website and include the following:

  • Social Media Toolkit: Utilize our social media kit to highlight how your organization is recognizing RGEW;
  • Suggested Activities: Keep responsible gaming top of mind for employees with other activities and ideas for engaging on this important issue;
  • Meeting Planner: Post this flyer that helps inform employees about RGEW events and encourages awareness year-round;
  • Newsletter Article: Incorporate responsible gaming messaging into internal employee communications;
  • Quiz: Test your team’s responsible gaming knowledge; and
  • Paycheck Message: Include responsible gaming messaging as an insert within employees’ pay stubs.

In addition to the toolkit, posters, brochures and other collateral are available to order at AGA’s online store, which includes a new version of our Know the Odds brochure that addresses skill-based and hybrid games. Please feel free to use these materials for your RGEW plans and events within your organization.

Further, we encourage you to share your RGEW plans with us now and throughout the year. We will incorporate a member spotlight on the AGA website where we’ll highlight the industry’s recognition of responsible gaming.

Our member companies strive year-round to keep their employees trained on the most effective responsible gaming practices and to ensure that gaming patrons have easy access to responsible gaming resources.

If you have any questions about AGA’s engagement, or would like to propose other ideas for collaboration, please let us know.
