SaskGaming Marks Responsible Gambling Awareness Week at Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw

Released on May 4, 2015

Responsible Gambling Awareness Week kicks off today and runs until May 8 at Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw.

This is the fifth year SaskGaming has hosted Responsible Gambling Awareness Week.  This year will feature a number of events, games and guest speakers who – along with SaskGaming’s GameSense team – will help engage casino guests to make informed choices about their gambling experience.

“SaskGaming is committed to providing casino entertainment in a socially responsible manner,” Minister responsible for SaskGaming Nancy Heppner said.  “I’m pleased to see the corporation deliver on that commitment through events like Responsible Gambling Awareness Week.  We want our guests to have an entertaining and enjoyable experience at our casinos and part of that is ensuring they do so responsibly.”

This week also marks the second anniversary of GameSense at Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw. 

GameSense is SaskGaming’s responsible gaming program that is designed to promote informed choices and healthy behaviours among guests.

The program includes mandatory responsible gambling training for all casino employees; GameSense information centres and kiosks that can be found on the gaming floor at Casino Regina and Casino Moose Jaw; and a team of GameSense advisors who are specially-trained to interact with guests on responsible gambling issues.

SaskGaming also supports the province’s voluntary self-exclusion program, which allows players to exclude themselves from casinos in Saskatchewan for a specified period of time.  To further support the enforcement of the self-exclusion program, licence plate recognition technology is in place at Casino Regina to help detect and deter excluded patrons.

“There are a number of resources available to those who gamble and our GameSense Advisors are here to help them find the tools and supports they need,” SaskGaming Interim President and CEO Blaine Pilatzke said.  “Responsible Gambling Awareness Week is a great way to reach out to our guests and help them make informed, responsible choices.”
