Responsible Gambling Awareness Week Highlights SaskGaming's Responsible Gaming Program

Released on May 2, 2016

Dispelling myths about gambling and educating guests on the odds of winning and losing will be front-and-center as SaskGaming kicks off Responsible Gambling Awareness Week.

Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw will play host to a number of activities and information sessions to mark the week, which runs until May 6.  With the help of SaskGaming’s GameSense Advisors, guests will learn valuable tips about playing responsibly, while keeping their gambling experience both entertaining and enjoyable.

“Providing gaming entertainment in a socially responsible manner is a hallmark of SaskGaming,” Minister responsible for SaskGaming Nancy Heppner said.  “Hosting Responsible Gambling Awareness Week provides an opportunity for SaskGaming to highlight this important component of the corporation’s mandate.”

As part of its commitment to responsible gambling, Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw maintain GameSense – a comprehensive responsible gambling program with a team of trained advisors, information centres and kiosks for guests who require additional supports.

“SaskGaming is proud to be a leader in responsible gambling programming in Saskatchewan,” SaskGaming President and CEO Susan Flett said.  “As good corporate citizens, we are always seeking new ways to strengthen our commitments to guests by introducing tools, expanding our resources and highlighting the importance of a responsible gambling experience.”

In October 2015, SaskGaming took steps to further enhance its responsible gambling program by introducing a disentitlement of winnings policy.  The policy allows Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw to withhold prizes, such as winnings or any other rewards from individuals who are ineligible to win or have voluntarily self-excluded themselves from casinos in Saskatchewan.  Funds withheld through the policy are provided to charitable organizations, events and projects in Saskatchewan through SaskGaming’s Community Relations Program.
