Support for First-of-its-Kind Research Highlights Industry’s Commitment to Responsible Gaming

The American Gaming Association (AGA) has contributed $100,000 as a founding donor of the National Center for Responsible Gaming’s (NCRG) new Fund to Support Research on Sports Wagering. The fund is the first in the nation dedicated solely to studying the impact of sports wagering on American bettors since the Supreme Court overturned the federal ban on sports betting in May 2018.

Research supported by NCRG’s fund will equip operators, policymakers and the more than 4,000 regulators across the U.S. with science-based evidence to assess and design gaming provisions and policies that protect consumers and prioritize responsible gaming above all else. The creation of the fund will be discussed today at a Get to Know Gaming event at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, which will highlight the industry’s commitment to responsibility during Responsible Gaming Education Week (RGEW).

“The expansion of legal, regulated sports betting has made it increasingly important that responsible gaming is not only a signature priority in new gaming markets, but that we also continue to deepen our understanding of effective responsible gaming practices,” said Bill Miller, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. “The American Gaming Association is pleased to be a founding donor of this important endeavor.”

MGM Resorts International joined AGA as a founding donor. AGA members William Hill US, GVC Holdings PLC, IGT and Hard Rock International have also made significant contributions to the fund, in addition to NASCAR.

“The NCRG has long been a catalyst in the field of gaming research. This fund is especially significant because it will open up research in a previously understudied field in the United States – defining what we know about the effects of sports wagering for years to come,” said Dr. Russell Sanna, executive director for the National Center for Responsible Gaming. “With new opportunities for legal sports betting around the country, policymakers, practitioners, the entire industry, and the public will benefit from expanding our knowledge on this issue.”

In conjunction with RGEW, AGA also released a new version of its comprehensive Responsible Gaming: Regulations and Statutes. Updated to meet the needs of researchers, lawmakers and regulators in the ever-modernizing casino gaming industry, the latest version is a collection of the statutes and regulations addressing responsible gaming in the 28 states, plus the District of Columbia, with commercial casinos or sports betting regulations as of Aug. 31, 2019. It underscores the industry’s approach to addressing responsible gaming across hundreds of jurisdictions.

Red Rake Gaming (Red Rake), a leading online casino games supplier, has entered into their first agreement as games supplier to the social casino industry. Thanks to this deal, Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH), an authority of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, will have access to the full portfolio of Red Rake Gaming games.

WCH operates several gaming facilities in Alabama, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Aruba and Curacao, and offers online social casino games to its customers. Red Rake’s offering, which consists of slots, video bingo and table games will be available for the WCH social casino customers in the coming weeks.

Although WCH is the first social casino customer in Red Rake’s history, this is not the first step of the Spanish supplier in the social casino industry, as they have been developing and operating social casino games for almost a decade.

Nick Barr, Managing Director of Red Rake Malta, commented on the deal: “We are honoured to work alongside Wind Creek in their social casino business. This a significant step for us, because not only is this our first partner in the social casino industry as a B2B entity, but also because it is the foundation of what we expect to be another great regulated market for us in terms of real money. We anticipate a great partnership with Wind Creek for many years to come”

Ron Nesbitt, WCH Vice President of Game Operations, added: “Our social gaming site, WindCreekCasino.com, provides our customers an engaging and interactive experience that has proven to be an excellent retention tool for us over the years. We are delighted to enhance our offering with the addition of Red Rake Gaming content.
