Melco Resorts & Entertainment has become the first integrated resort operator in Macau and the Philippines to achieve international third-party responsible gaming accreditation RG Check from the Responsible Gambling Council.
The Responsible Gambling Council is a Canada-based independent non-profit organization which seeks to advance responsible gambling standards globally, with its RG Check accreditation program seen as one of the worlds most comprehensive and rigorous. Valid for three years, it is designed to meet or exceed all existing responsible gaming regulatory requirements.
We commend Melco on demonstrating their commitment to responsible gaming and being the first operator to achieve RG Check accreditation for venues in Macau and the Philippines, said Responsible Gambling Council CEO, Shelley White. RG Check is an important tool for continuous improvement, helping operators manage risk and increase the effectiveness of their RG programming. RGC is proud to be able to support Melcos efforts in player education, employee training and harm minimization with evidence-based best practices in areas of responsible gaming.
Melco Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho added, Responsible gaming continues to be at the core of our commitment to society as we continue to offer the highest standards of service whilst striving to ensure the provision of a safe and fair gaming experience for all our valued guests.
We are committed to the development and maintenance of a culture of responsible gaming in every jurisdiction in which we operate, respecting and fully cooperating with international government and gaming regulators. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizers and our many dedicated colleagues who made this achievement possible.
