IMPORTANCE OF RESPONSIBLE GAMING

Our geographically diverse portfolio of casino and racing properties are home to market leading tenant operators with strong commitments towards promoting and ensuring responsible gaming.  VICI and its respective tenants want all casino customers to have fun and enjoy the casino and racing properties responsibly.  While the overwhelming majority of casino customers enjoy the various forms of gambling and non-gambling entertainment responsibly, we also understand there is a small proportion of the population who do not.

To protect these individuals, and others affected by compulsive and problem gambling behavior, each of our tenants must maintain a set of policies and guidelines that meet or exceed the minimum standards in the tenant’s jurisdiction for addressing problem gambling, voluntary self-exclusion, underage gambling, improper use of alcohol, responsible marketing and advertising and the prevention of unattended minors.  Our tenants use a variety of approaches to promote responsible gaming including employee training programs, customer awareness campaigns, self-exclusion and financial restriction programs, written procedures for recognizing and managing these issues, use of outside experts, and ongoing monitoring and review.

Additional information to help recognize compulsive and problem gambling behavior can be found on the websites for the National Council on Problem Gambling and its affiliated state chapters.

If you are concerned that you or someone you know may have a gambling problem, help is available.  Call or Text 1-800-522-4700

TIPS FOR A SAFER GAMBLING EXPERIENCE

  1. If you choose to gamble, do so for entertainment purposes only. If you find that gambling is no longer an enjoyable activity, ask yourself why you are still playing.
  2. Treat the money you lose as the cost of your entertainment, and any money you win as a bonus.
  3. Set a dollar limit and stick to it. Before you play, decide on an budget based on how much you are actually willing to spend on this entertainment. Do not change your mind after losing.
  4. Set a time limit and stick to it. Do not change your mind at the end of the time limit after losing.
  5. Expect to lose more than you win. Based on the odds, that is the most likely outcome.
  6. Pay attention to balance in your life, and don't neglect friends, family, work, or other worthwhile activities to gamble.
  7. Don't chase lost money or gamble in an attempt to win back your losses.
  8. Gambling for reasons other than entertainment can lead to problems. Do not gamble as a way to cope with emotional or physical pain.
