These were measured against MGM’s Borgata Online, Ontario igaming, and U.S. internet-gambling operations and found worthy,
The panel adjudicating BetMGM’s operations was composed of University of Victoria adjunct professor George L. Morfitt, a former auditor general of British Columbia, and Dan Perrins, a senior fellow at the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Regina in Saskatchewan. According to the Council’s website, “RG Check Accreditation is valid for a three-year period, at which point operators may apply for reaccreditation.”
BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt reacted to the accolade by saying, “This accreditation is a testament to our ongoing efforts to promote responsibility throughout our business and to ensure the well-being of our customers. We will continue to work closely with the RGC and other industry partners to promote a culture of safe and enjoyable gambling.”
Added RGC CEO Shelley White, “This accomplishment is a clear demonstration that BetMGM has a strong commitment to responsible gambling and player safety.”
