As a responsible corporate citizen, MGM has long been a champion of responsible gaming. This year, the Company rolled out a Responsible Gaming (RG) initiative themed “Lost Control, Lose Family” to align with the policies of the Macau Government. The initiative adopted a holistic approach, comprised of a wide range of activities, enabling team members, residents and tourists to better acquire RG knowledge. Through strengthening its bond with local associations this year, MGM has explored more novel and effective means to promote RG such as the community-based roadshows, in a bid to develop a more harmonious and healthier community.
MGM teamed up with the Sheng Kung Hui Macau Social Services Coordination Office (SKH), Associação de Juventude Voluntária de Macau (AJVM) and Macao Gaming Industry Employees Home (GEH) to launch a series of RG roadshows, including “MGM x AJVM – Responsible Gaming Roadshow”, “MGM x GEH – ‘Lost Control, Lose Family’ Responsible Gaming Roadshow” and more. The roadshows were conducive to broadening community engagement and inculcating RG concepts into the community. MGM and these associations also collaborated to co-host interactive RG events, such as seminars, multimedia promotions and family-friendly activities, to help audiences better grasp the potential risks of gaming activities.
To further deepen the RG knowledge of its team members, MGM collaborated with SKH to co-organize the first “RG Talk in Homebase” event at MGM’s team member dining areas, during which SKH counselors expounded on RG knowledge to team members via fun quizzes with prizes. The company also launched the “Surprise Visit by RG Ambassador” for the first time to carry out surprise tests on RG topics at various departments.
In addition, the “Let’s Roll RG” training course, launched this year, has been incorporated with new content about preventive measures for problem gambling so that team members can better understand and tackle gambling disorder. The Company also assisted them in completing the “Certificate in Macau Responsible Gaming Advisor” Course organized by the government. Throughout 2021, MGM tapped into an array of promotional and educational platforms as well as counseling service for the sake of helping team members fully enhance their awareness and knowledge of responsible gaming.
