MGM Resorts and BetMGM have plans to introduce their responsible gaming program, GameSense, to nine National Football League (NFL) stadiums in the course of the coming season.
One of the venues that the gaming group is targeting is the Las Vegas Raider’s Allegiant Stadium. GameSence was delivered by MGM in 2017 and involved parameters for responsible gaming. Further to that, MGM Resorts and BetMGM have declared the fact that they have pledged to keep aside over $1 million for the sake of funding various responsible gaming programs. This will involve research, as well as advocacy, prevention, promotion, and management backing.
According to the Chief Compliance Officer at BetMGM, Rhea Loney, their whole idea is to safeguard the interests of the gamers and to educate them on the perils of crossing the boundary of proper gaming. All through the NFL season, GameSense will be responsible for the way the gamers carry out their NFL betting activities.
There are plans afoot to introduce the program at the place of the current champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, as well as with Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos, and Detroit Lions. They will also be targeting the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Tennessee Titans, and Arizona Cardinals. BetMGM is associated with all of the nine teams, along with being in the position of an NFL-licensed gambling operator.
The inception of GameSense happened in 2017 and was licensed to MGM Resorts by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC). As per the Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer of MGM Resorts, Stephen Martino, the gaming industry scenario has been, over time, evolving significantly with the regulatory measures related to online gambling and sports betting falling into place.
The need of the hour is the formation of associations between operators and stakeholders for the sake of responsible gaming. It is necessary for all connected with the online gaming arena to be provided with adequate tools and know-how for enjoying robust gaming exposure. The official declaration was made by MGM before the commencement of the NFL season, which is slated for the 7th of September, 2023. It goes in tandem with Responsible Gaming Education Month, backed by the American Gaming Association.
