A coalition of the largest online gaming operators in the country, which came together last September to agree on industry-led responsible gaming standards, has welcomed three new members to its ranks: Fanatics Betting and Gaming, Hard Rock Digital, and PointsBet.
The industry-leading coalition now includes the following nine members: Bally’s, BetMGM, DraftKings, Entain, Fanatics, FanDuel, Hard Rock Digital, PointsBet, and MGM Resorts International.
“PointsBet is proud to join the Responsible Gambling Coalition to continue bolstering our commitment to this important topic,” said Rachel Kasper, SVP of Legal and Compliance of PointsBet US. “Responsible gambling is a core priority for our business and requires meaningful collaboration with all stakeholders, inclusive of operators competing within the same markets, to promote this aspect of our industry and ensure safe practices are followed.”
“We are proud to collaborate and partner with our industry colleagues,” said Anthony D’Angelo, Sr. Manager, Responsible Gaming for Fanatics Betting & Gaming. “We are committed to the 12 responsible gaming principals and providing our fans tools and resources to enjoy our products.”
“Hard Rock Digital is pleased to have this opportunity to collaborate with our fellow operators to promote and maintain an industry-wide atmosphere of responsible gambling,” said Danny Crook, SVP of Operations at Hard Rock Digital. “We’re committed to serving our players with educational tools, resources, and support to ensure a safe and enjoyable online gaming experience.”
The industry-leading operators have further followed through on their commitment to the principles, which will be reviewed externally by a panel of experts who will provide guidance for future endeavors.
