Recognizing Responsible Gaming Education Week

At
Before You Bet, our mission is to provide education and raise awareness of
responsible gambling practices. Organizations that share our commitment to that
mission include Ohio for Responsible Gambling, The Problem Gambling Network of
Ohio and The American Gaming Association (AGA).

This
week marks the 22nd-annual Responsible Gaming Education Week (RGEW)
– an initiative founded by the AGA and designed to increase awareness of
problem gambling among gaming industry employees and customers. The AGA and the
entire gaming industry realize that education is essential to promoting
responsible play. RGEW provides that education – with the latest news, research
and data related to problem gambling and responsible gaming.

Responsible Gaming Education Week provides gaming companies and casinos with opportunities to expand on the work they do every day by educating employees and ensuring that patrons have easy access to responsible gaming resources. The tools and information offered are valuable components of a comprehensive public health approach to reducing harm from gambling addiction.

supporting.
