Responsible gaming (RG) is at the core of our commitment to society as we continue to offer the highest standards of service and ensure a fair and safe gaming experience for our guests. Our commitment is to develop and maintain a culture of responsible gaming in every jurisdiction we operate in, while respecting and fully cooperating with international governments and gaming regulators.
Goal 4: Quality Education
Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals
Our gaming and non-gaming departments as well as global executive leaders, including Presidents and Chief Operating Officers (COOs), are represented on this Committee. Through quarterly meetings, the Committee provides strategic direction for all our RG initiatives. Separate working committees meet more regularly to propose and implement initiatives that ensure we remain committed to promoting responsible gaming and an attitude of staying in control.
Responsible Gaming requires us to build long-term relationships, rooted in shared values, with governments, regulators, research institutions, colleagues, the community and other key stakeholders in the gaming industry. The success of our global RG strategy depends upon a well-tested, three-pronged approach that provides a solid framework for RG implementation across our resorts.
