American Gaming Association Unveils New Code of Conduct in A.C.Last Edited:
Officials with the American Gaming Association (AGA) met at Stockton University in South Jersey on Tuesday, August 1st, to unveil a new code of conduct to help promote responsible gaming.
The announcement was made at the AGA's Responsible Gaming Event as part of the gambling industry's 20th anniversary of Responsible Gaming Education Week.
Officials hope the new code of conduct will shape the industry's responsible gaming efforts in the future, and help raise awareness for problem gaming.
"This is a voluntary measure that we [in] the industry put together that really dictates how we work with our customers to protect them," said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association.
"We have an obligation to protect them, make sure that they know the odds, make sure they know where to get help, give them the tools they need to protect themselves, and, in those instances where appropriate, to stay out of the casino environment."
The new code of conduct will apply to all forms of casino gaming, include new consumer protection measures, and require the board to review it annually to make sure it is keeping up with the times.
