SEPTEMBER 2022 | #RGEM2022
This September marks the inaugural Responsible Gaming Education Month (RGEM), formerly Responsible Gaming Education Week, sponsored by the American Gaming Association. The goal of the month is to promote gaming literacy and consumer education, elevate employee training, and work to advance our understanding of responsible gambling (RG).
At DraftKings, RG is always top of mind and is a key principle in ensuring that we are doing right by our players as an operator. Our Responsible Gaming team collaborates with various teams across the organization to make sure that RG is an integral part of their work and as a result, we have an award-winning RG program with award-winning RG professionals!
RESPONSIBLE GAMING EDUCATION INVOLVES ALL OF US!
Responsible gaming for players means:
playing for pleasure and entertainment but are aware of their likelihood of losing, and understanding risks
they are able to control their betting
playing in balance with other activities in their lives and is not causing problems or harm for themselves or others
Responsible gaming for the broader community, including operators, regulators, government agencies and others requires:
shared responsibility for increasing the awareness of the risks associated with gambling
creating and promoting environments that prevent and minimize gaming-related harm, and
being responsive to community concerns around gaming
