This week, casinos and gaming companies from across the United States joined with the American Gaming Association (AGA) and the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) to participate in the 15thannual Responsible Gaming Education Week.  The theme for the week is an extension of the AGA’s 2012 “All In” campaign highlighting the gaming industry’s corporate social responsibility efforts with a focus on responsible gaming as a community issue and using gaming employees as ambassadors to further the effort.

“Gaming companies spend a great deal of time and effort educating employees about responsible gaming, and this year’s theme will ask employees to think about their relationship with this important issue and how they can be responsible gaming resources within their communities,” said Frank Fahrenkopf, president and CEO of the AGA.  “However, responsible gaming also is a deeply personal issue, so we are asking employees to think about how their daily lives are affected by responsible gaming.”

In connection with Responsible Gaming Education Week, the AGA is sponsoring a contest for industry employees through which they can create posters, essays and videos that showcase what responsible gaming means to them.  The best entries will be featured on the AGA’s website.  The deadline to enter the contest is August 13.  More information can be found at: www.americangaming.org/AllInContest.

In addition, the AGA is working with the National Center for Responsible Gaming to release a new research-based guidebook for human resources and employee assistance professionals that answers frequently asked questions regarding gambling disorders and responsible gaming.  The new resource is available for download at: www.ncrg.org/gamblingandhealth.

As it has in the past, the AGA created buttons, stickers and ribbons for gaming companies and properties to make available to employees to help promote Responsible Gaming Education Week.
