New rules for responsible casino gambling rolled out in Las Vegas

Tags: American Gaming Association, Las Vegas.
Posted on Monday, August 14, 2017 by "T".

On August 3rd, the American Gaming Association released documentation for a new code of conduct for responsible (casino) gambling to the West Coast region and a panel of industry representatives explained how they would like customers to have fun without falling into the dangerous clutches of compulsive gambling obsession.

Representatives of the American Gaming Association, Everi Holdings, MGM Resorts International, William Hill, and the state Gaming Control Board have gathered together for a conference at UNLV's International Gaming Institute by Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani and Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev.

The new 4-page policy promises to promote responsible gaming amongst patrons, prevent the occurrence of underage gambling and unsupervised minors in casinos, and to advertise and serve alcohol responsibly.

The code also has guidelines for casino operators to educate employees regarding their responsibilities, promises the general public to continue with researching about problem gambling, and update the code with every technological advancement annually.

The American Gaming Association is a group of tribal and commercial casino operators, suppliers and other bodies affiliated with the $240 billion-per-year USA casino industry, which supports an incredible 1.7 million jobs within 40 states.

The new code has been introduced first in Atlantic City on August 1st.

The difference of this new release from the previous 1-page version of the code of conduct is that it now includes all types of mobile and interactive gaming and also land-based casinos. The new version also includes new consumer protection measures with improved transparency on casino payouts and gaming odds, and also making sure that marketing and advertisements do not wrongly represent the probability of winning.

However, the newly improved code faces a few challenges.

Around 67% of tribal casinos and 10% of the commercial casino industry are not members of the American Gaming Association; but the association's senior director of gaming policy Elizabeth Cronan said that most non-members do follow their policies.

There is actually no punishment or incentive to make casinos to observe and follow the code, and the constantly-evolving technology moves faster than policies which can hardly keep up.

The association has promised to provide informative data for universities to continue conducting research on excessive or compulsive gambling. Researchers even say that occasionally, they find policy changes have unintentionally backfired, making a problem even worse.
In Australia, one feature made to slow down the slot machines' spinning reels to facilitate slow play and help gamblers have "a breather" actually resulted to them playing a lot longer than expected.

Skeptics also pointed out that they strongly believe casino companies do not have the means or capability to turn away players who play compulsively.

Control board member Terry Johnson said discussions between Nevada gaming regulators will commence this month on many topics related to Nevada's new recreational marijuana law.

The code stipulates casinos must not knowingly serve alcoholic drinks to visibly-intoxicated people nor allow gambling of a visibly-intoxicated individual. However, spotting a gambler high on marijuana might be a more challenging task.

Hello my friends and fellow mobsters

This is another measure to be politically correct they always say they have all the rules and regulations perfect at the paper but in the real world they are full of loop hools that can bend the sense of the law
I agree that the compulsive gambling must be attack but with the big operators out the result can`t be to good

This is very difficult to do. There are many people who are too dangerous clutches of compulsive gambling obsession. None casino will stop this. Some people do not know when to stop and they play often until they lose all the money. With minors are right. They need to stop going into casinos.
 dule-vu8/14/2017 2:47:25 PM GMT

Yeah, but those compulsives are these establishment's bread and butter. 'Once in a decade gambling' tourists will not generate much income for the house...
 pajalnick8/14/2017 7:45:56 PM GMT
These rules are just fake for the public .... why casinos refuse to profit ??? .... Of course, probably will do several demonstrative actions in order to reassure people and then everything will go the same way as it was before .... I do not believe In the honesty of the casino

An industry with 240 billions USD per year, plus 1.7 millions employees Smile
These numbers seem ridiculous, but they are true apparently.
Good taking some action, but it wont be easy enforcing the new rules.
Rules that had to be there from day one.

I think ,that anytime you can champion the cause of responsible gambling, this is a very good thing. I have seen a few of my friends go through tough times and these things can only help

i wonder how much winnings they pay out, gotta be 1 billion or something out of these 240 billions? lol. says it all... responsible gaming would be: not to play casino at all.
if you are rich and know its all about fun, thrill and throwing your money out of the window for fun - its cool. if you´re poor and think you can get rich - your dumb.

Or you have figured out a way to attack how the games are held. Like card counting in Blackjack, measuring the speed of the ball in Roulette, or that edge sorting thingy applied by Ivey and partner.
 DaCapo718/15/2017 9:56:16 AM GMT
At least, only the cash was important for them. And these kind of rules are only a fake for the public. Las Vegas was the paradise for all gamblers and people which will have fun. New terms and conditions are not necessary in my opinion.

man, i dont even notice if my woman changes her haircolor. why you think i would notice things like ivey did Big Smile
 shokaku8/15/2017 10:22:10 AM GMT
So you will never develop into a pro poker player. You must be able to see the tiniest movement of muscles in your opponents faces. But long term, the thing with the haircolor may prove to be more problematic.
 T3ddyKGB8/15/2017 11:44:09 AM GMT
actually im pretty good in reading opponents (live) and i seperate poker to all other 97% of the "luck depending" games casinos offer like slots, roulette and so on, with the math on the casinos side which cant be beaten legaly.
 pochui8/15/2017 12:45:30 PM GMT
oh yeah i imagine how everyone who's anyone in las vegas is really onto the idea of so called "responsible casino gambling", basically what this means is economic meltdown. dunno is it just me of terms gambling and responsible somehow do not match.
 Mober8/15/2017 10:22:25 PM GMT
Many poor have tried their luck in casinos for a fast profit.
Most of them failed. And many more of course will try in the future.
Its like a magnet

@ shokaku had a laugh with your wife's hair color change Smile Thumbs Up

Almost easier to develop and show some 'fake tells' than having a successfull read on others.

Speaking of a new law, recreational marijuana became legal on July 1, 2017 in Nevada. Nevada dispensaries have been selling marijuana at an enormous rate since then. I am not a smoker but I will definitely try some weed the next time I am in Vegas!
 shokaku8/31/2017 4:02:21 PM GMT
Good choice. The weed will make it far easier to stay calm, when the house wins all the money. Gambling under influence can seriously backfire,as it clouds the jugement at the tables or wheels.
 Tony_MON7ANA9/1/2017 2:41:25 PM GMT
Yeah, alcohol or drug makes us feel good, relaxed, and lighthearted. If you drink, keep it moderate. Moderation is the key. Everyone knows that but some people just can't quit drinking, no matter how hard they try.
 Mober9/2/2017 7:06:19 PM GMT
Well going to a casino should be for fun and only fun for most of the people.
You just need to put some money into your pockets, thinking that this is all the money,
you are going to lose, in your visit. Smile
This is the main picture you have to have in your mind, that you are going there to lose.
If you win thats great you have bitten the odds Smile
And of course you dont take credit cards and stuff with you enabling you to reload Smile

You have to. No hotel going to accept your reservation without a credit/debit card. Besides Vegas became a family vacation destination as well I doubt the people who are going there with children likes running around with pockets full of cash...
Theres no good solution for stopping the urge tbh.
