Online casino and sports betting operator BetMGM announced it has received a top accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) for the responsible gaming and player protection protocols incorporated into its North American platforms and operations.
The RG Check is regarded as “one of the industry’s most comprehensive and rigorous responsible gaming accreditation programs,” notes the brand. The program validates organizations that have implemented robust responsible gaming policies and practices.
Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, commented: “We are proud to have received this prestigious RG Check certification. This accreditation is a testament to our ongoing efforts to promote responsibility throughout our business and to ensure the well-being of our customers. We will continue to work closely with the RGC and other industry partners to promote a culture of safe and enjoyable gambling.”
To achieve RG Check accreditation, BetMGM underwent a rigorous evaluation process, which included a review of its responsible gaming policies and procedures, staff training and player protection measures.
The evaluation was conducted by RGC’s team of experts, who assessed the effectiveness of BetMGM’s responsible gaming program and provided recommendations for improvement based on established standards and criteria. BetMGM’s U.S., Ontario and Borgata Online labels were subject to the accreditation.
Shelley White, CEO of RGC, said: “Congratulations to BetMGM on achieving the RG Check accreditation for all of its North American platforms. This accomplishment is a clear demonstration that BetMGM has a strong commitment to responsible gambling and player safety. We commend BetMGM for its dedication to promoting responsible gambling practices and its efforts to ensure the well-being of its players.”
As part of its RG efforts, BetMGM is also part of an unnamed coalition, comprising nine operators in the US, that came together last September to agree on industry-led responsible gaming standards.
This week, the coalition has welcomed three new members to its ranks: Fanatics, Hard Rock Digital, and PointsBet. Members include Bally’s, BetMGM, DraftKings, Entain, FanDuel, MGM Resorts, and the aforementioned companies. The operators have elaborated 12 responsible gaming principles, which will be reviewed externally by a panel of experts that will provide guidance for future endeavors.
