Highest RG accreditation earned by three more OLG sites
With the addition of OLG Slots at Georgian Downs, OLG Slots at Kawartha Downs and OLG Casino Thousand Islands, a total of 13 gaming sites and one gaming resort facility have now earned RG Check accreditation. This means that more than half of OLG’s gaming sites have been recognized by the most rigorous Responsible Gambling (RG) accreditation program in the world.
OLG Slots at Georgian Downs, OLG Slots at Kawartha Downs and OLG Casino Thousand Islands are the three latest OLG gaming sites to earn RG Check accreditation.
Ten other gaming facilities have previously earned the RG Check accreditation, including:
- OLG Slots at Western Fair District;
- OLG Casino Point Edward;
- OLG Slots at Dresden Raceway;
- OLG Casino Brantford;
- OLG Slots at Mohawk Racetrack;
- OLG Slots atWoodstockRaceway;
- OLG Casino Sault Ste. Marie;
- OLG CasinoThunder Bay;
- OLG Slots atAjaxDowns; and
- OLG Slots atSudburyDowns.
In addition, Caesars Windsor was the first casino resort property in the world to achieve this accreditation when it was recognized in 2012.
Administered by the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), the
RG Check accreditation is based on an RG Index that is informed by international best practices and evaluates eight core standards: corporate policies, self-exclusion, advertising and promotion, informed decision making, assisting patrons who may have problems with gambling, access to money, venue and game features, and employee training. The sites met all of these standards, earning OLG the highly recognized accreditation.
OLG knows that when it comes to Responsible Gambling, there is always room for improvement and maintaining OLG’s high quality RG program is critical to OLG’s modernization. OLG will continue to work towards achieving the RG Check accreditation at each of its sites. In addition, all future qualified service providers will be required to adhere to rigorous external standards like the RG Check and the regulations of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
