Global Payments Partners with the American Gaming Association to Promote Responsible Gaming

by Global Payments Gaming Team / September 23, 2021

This year, Responsible Gaming Education Week (RGEW) takes place Sept. 19-25, 2021. Established in 1998, RGEW was created to address the challenges associated with problem gambling and to promote responsible gaming nationwide.

As part of Responsible Gaming Week, Global Payments has become the newest partner to join AGA’s Have A Game Plan. ® Bet Responsibly.™ public service campaign. Originally launched in 2019, the campaign encourages patrons to follow a game plan, ensuring safe and responsible wagering as the legal sports betting market continues to expand. The key parts to this initiative include:

  1. Set a budget and stick to it.
  2. Keep it social: play with friends, family, and colleagues.
  3. Be informed: learn the details of the games you’re playing.
  4. Play with trusted licensed, regulated operators.

As a partner, Global Payments will incorporate Have a Game Plan into its social media channels and customer-facing marketing. Additionally, Global Payments has dedicated its weekly blog series to raising awareness about the importance of responsible gaming throughout the month of September.

“Global Payments is deeply committed to responsible gaming – and this is why we’re proud to join the Have A Game Plan initiative to promote responsible wagering,” said Christopher Justice, president, Global Payments Gaming Solutions. “Our success depends on continuing to build strong relationships with our customers that are rooted in education and responsibility.”

Global Payments joins campaign partners across the sports betting landscape, including DraftKings, FanDuel, Monumental Sports and Entertainment, NASCAR, the NHL, the PGA TOUR, SeventySix Capital, Sightline Payments, Sinclair Broadcast Group, UFC, Vegas Golden Knights, and the Washington Football Team.

Moving forward, Global Payments will continue to devote time and resources to raising awareness about the importance of responsible gaming. More than 3.5 million patrons rely on Global Payments’ solutions for simple, safe, and responsible play.
