– Responsible Gambling Awareness Week 2018 –

May 14-19

This week focuses on talking to players about the realities of gambling, including the odds and randomness of different games as well as the myths and facts about the actual costs of play.

Knowledge Is Power!

Celebrating its 12th year, Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW) is sponsored by AGLC to raise awareness of responsible gambling, healthy play and the availability of prevention and treatment programs if gambling becomes a problem.

During RGAW, we’ll focus on talking to players about the realities of gambling, including the odds and randomness of different games as well as the myths and facts about the actual costs of play.

Casino guests can meet one of our GameSense Advisors at Casinos, racing entertainment centres and vlt locations throughout Alberta and to learn how various games work, the odds of play, and tips to keep gambling fun and enjoyable. They might even find a treat or two.

RGAW partners include Alberta Health Services, Alberta Health, the Alberta Charitable Casino Operators, the Alberta Hotel & Lodging Association, Restaurants Canada and Bingo Alberta.
