August 3rd - 7th is Responsible Gaming Education Week

Responsible Gaming Education Week (RGEW) was created by the American Gaming Association (AGA) in 1998 to increase awareness of problem gambling among gaming industry employees and customers and to promote responsible gaming nationwide. The AGA and the entire gaming industry realize that education is essential to promoting responsible play and inceasing awareness of gambling disorders. RGEW provides gaming companies with an opportunity to expand on work they do every day educatiing employees and patrons about the issue.
