“We are honored to receive the RG Check accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council,” said Caesars Digital President Eric Hession in a statement. “For more than 30 years, Caesars Entertainment has been at the forefront of responsible gaming, implementing policies that have carried over to Caesars Sportsbook to educate our players on how to play responsibly and providing responsible gaming tools. This acknowledgment validates our efforts to continue to improve our responsible gaming practices and ensure our players are gaming with us for the right reasons. We’re proud to further enhance our responsible gaming initiatives available through Caesars Sportsbook.”

The RG Check accreditation process included Caesars Sportsbook undergoing a thorough assessment of its responsible gaming practices, including team member training processes, player education and protection efforts. According to Caesars, the assessment resulted in the company’s sportsbook being considered an industry leader in responsible gaming practices.

“Congratulations to Caesars Sportsbook for receiving their RG Check accreditation,”  said Responsible Gambling Council CEO Shelley White. “RG Check is the world’s most comprehensive gambling accreditation program. Developed in consultation with policymakers, gambling providers, players, and people who have experienced gambling harm. It is also backed by rigorous safeguards that protect players and foster a sustainable player base. An RG Check Accreditation means Caesars Sportsbook has achieved the highest standards for their responsible gambling practices.”

In honor of March being Problem Gambling Awareness Month, Caesars Entertainment is reiterating its self-exclusion policy, which the company considers the most comprehensive in the industry. The policy expands a guest’s ability to self-exclude from its gambling facilities and every online gambling platform offered by Caesars Digital at local Caesars destinations or through a state-sponsored exclusion program.

In 2023, Caesars Entertainment also launched an enhanced 21+ gaming policy that limits Caesars Rewards accounts to individuals over 21 and, where allowed by law, limits all domestic gaming, pari-mutuel, sports, and iGaming options to those 21 and older.
