As Problem Gambling Awareness Month ended, the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) accredited Caesars Sportsbook after completing a thorough assessment of the operator’s dedication to encouraging responsible gaming.

In addition to following responsible gambling guidelines, Caesars Sportsbook (NASDAQ: CZR) was subjected to extensive evaluations in the areas of player education, security protocols, and staff member training.

In a Caesars Entertainment news release, President of Caesars Digital Eric Hession said that the accreditation shows that they are on the right path, and all efforts to secure players have been fruitful and worthwhile.

“We are honored to receive the RG Check accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council. For more than 30 years, Caesars Entertainment has been at the forefront of Responsible Gaming, implementing policies that have carried over to Caesars Sportsbook to educate our players on how to play responsibly and providing responsible gaming tools.

This acknowledgment validates our efforts to continue to improve our Responsible Gaming practices and ensure our players are gaming with us for the right reasons. We’re proud to further enhance our Responsible Gaming initiatives available through Caesars Sportsbook.”

The Responsible Gambling Council accreditation is a big deal

Based in Toronto, the RGC operates as an autonomous, non-profit entity with a focused mission on preventing problem gambling. The organization commits to this cause by undertaking various initiatives, including the development and implementation of awareness and informational campaigns.

Caesar’s certification sets it apart from other honors by signifying adherence to strict requirements and unwavering standards. Hence, the RGC awards this accomplishment solely to the industry’s most ethical operators.

At the same time last year, the RGC awarded this victory to BetMGM, as it received the same accreditation.

The Chief Executive Officer of RGC, Shelly White, shared her heartfelt message, noting that to honor Caesars with the accreditation only means that the operator reached the pinnacle in observing and carrying out responsible gambling practices.

“Congratulations to Caesars Sportsbook for receiving their RG Check accreditation. RG Check is the world’s most comprehensive gambling accreditation program. Developed in consultation with policymakers, gambling providers, players, and people who have experienced gambling harm.

It is also backed by rigorous safeguards that protect players and foster a sustainable player base. An RG Check Accreditation means Caesars Sportsbook has achieved the highest standards for their Responsible Gambling practices.”

Adding to Caesars’ already impressive self-exclusion policy, industry insiders praise the operator for having the most extensive one out there.

It doesn’t stop there, as the operator recently unveiled an improved 21+ gaming policy as part of its continuous efforts to encourage safe gaming behaviors. This program limits membership in its loyalty program to those who are 21 years of age or older.
