Responsible Gaming Education Week (RGEW) will take place September 13-19, 2020. This year, the American Gaming Association (AGA) is focusing on the campaign, Have A Game Plan,™ Bet Responsibly, to educate new consumers and seasoned bettors on responsible sports wagering.
The campaign is more important than ever as legal sports betting options expand across the U.S and live sports begin to pick up after months of cancelled seasons and events. There are four key parts to this initiative:
- Set a budget and stick to it.
- Keep it social: play with friends, family, and colleagues.
- Be informed: learn the details of the games you’re playing.
- Play with trusted licensed, regulated operators.
Originally started in 1998, RGEW was founded with the purpose of addressing the challenges associated with problem gambling and to promote responsible gaming nationwide.
