[Macau – January 7, 2016] On January 6, a group of students undertaking the Social Sciences in Youth and Social Services course from HKUSPACE Po Leung Kuk Stanley Ho Community College visited MGM MACAU for a presentation on MGM’s responsible gaming program followed by a tour of the resort. This program aims to introduce the message of responsible gaming, problem gaming prevention, and to enhance the students’ understanding of social welfare services. MGM has always been a devoted supporter of community initiatives, aimed to create a better Macau, today. In addition to organizing and participating in diversified community and charity activities, we also continue to promote responsible gaming, something we have consistently done since our opening in 2007.

To provide responsible gaming information, MGM is committed to supporting the Macao SAR government in continuously providing varieties of workshops, training and talks to the Golden Lion Team members.
