MGM Resorts to Donate $360,000 For Responsible Gaming Charity

American casino operator MGM Resorts International revealed that they've donated $360,000 to the International Center for Responsible Gaming in order to help promote safe betting.

The money is going toward studies related to gambling disorders, with the goal to help understand the disorders, address gambling risks, and prevent harm from happening. The studies will take place in the US and serves as the latest donation by MGM, who regularly gives money to gambling-related charities.

"These research projects are critical to the continued success of the industry and are in the best interest of our guests, company, employees, and the communities where we operate," said MGM Resorts Chief Compliance Officer Stephen Martino. "We're pleased to continue our financial support of the ICRG and its critical work around responsible gaming best practices."

International Center for Responsible Gaming President Arthur Paikowsky also commented, noting: "We salute MGM Resorts for supporting our research that will answer the many questions we have about the impact of gender on gambling disorder and address the health risks of casino employees. The ICRG is very grateful for the company's long-standing and continuing support of the ICRG."
