Melco promotes Responsible Gaming Awareness Month, organized game booths across its properties

December 11, 2018 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Melco Resorts & Entertainment (Nasdaq: MLCO)  prioritizes responsible gaming as one of its core pillars in corporate social responsibility.  To demonstrate its commitment to responsible gaming, Melco recently supported the Macao SAR Government’s Responsible Gaming Awareness Month by organizing interactive game booths across its properties to further promote its responsible gaming culture and raise employee awareness around the issue.


Melco set-up game booths across City of Dreams, Studio City, Altira, Mocha Club and Macau corporate office in a series of events from November12-30, 2018.  These events attracted nearly one-third of Melco’s workforce, with more than 5,800 employees participating.

Guided by the Company’s goal to be responsible and accountable to its customers, employees and all stakeholders, responsible gaming has always been a paramount issue for Melco in an effort to proactively reduce and alleviate issues related to gambling addiction. With our three-pronged strategy, Melco’s responsible gaming strategy includes employee training and education, the integration of advanced technology and systems as well as engagement with the local community.

Considered a pioneer in the field, Melco remains the only company in Macau to provide compulsory responsible gaming training to all employees in  both gaming and non-gaming roles. In the past decade, over 56,000 employees participated in Melco’s responsible gaming awareness activities, dedicating more than 1,300 event hours. In 2016, Melco became the first gaming operator in Macau to install state-of-the-art facial recognition security systems at each of its gaming area entrances to keep out patrons who opt for self-exclusion or who have been banned from entering due to gambling addiction.  Melco was also the only gaming company in Macau to win the CSR Category-Gold Award twice by the Business Awards ofMacau.

Ms. Akiko Takahashi, Executive Vice President, Chief Officer of Human Resources and Corporate Social Responsibility of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “Responsible gaming has been and continues to be a top priority for Melco. We are fully supportive of government policies that encourage responsible gaming.  For us, this goes beyond just compliance, we view responsible gaming as an integral part of our strategy and how we train our employees. I would like to thank our employees for their participation and commitment to support this initiative and hope we continue to do more in this area for the sustainable development of the gaming industry as well as our local community.”
