September 10, 2018 Resort News No Comments Email Email

Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (Nasdaq: MLCO) (“Melco” or the “Company” or “we”), strives to be a global entertainment and gaming industry leader and values responsible gaming (RG) as a key focus of corporate social responsibility (CSR) for the sustainable development of both the industry and the region. As part of its efforts to reinforce responsible gaming culture and strengthen employee knowledge, Melco hosted its 2nd ‘Quiz for Knowledge’ competition today at City of Dreams before an audience of over 400 people, including, among others, Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and CEO of Melco, guests of honor and Melco senior executives and employees. Teams from Melco’s various departments took part in group competitions and awards were distributed in celebration of their achievements.

At the event, Mr. Lawrence Ho expressed: “Melco is fully supportive of the Macao SAR government’s policies placing RG as a focus area for the advancement of the industry and development of Macau’s role within the region. Evidenced at today’s employee training event, RG continues to be core to Melco’s CSR efforts as we reinforce and provide updated knowledge to colleagues, as well as sharing details of the Company’s latest policies to combat such issues. As of now, Melco remains the only gaming operator in Macau that provides related mandatory training to all employees, from both gaming and non-gaming departments, emphasizing the significance of each employee’s role in RG.”

Ms. Chan Ioc Sut, Head of Research and Investigation Department of the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), said: “The promotion of RG continues to be a critical part of the Macao SAR Government’s policy address to facilitate healthy development of the gaming industry. We are pleased to support initiatives from gaming operators that raise awareness for RG among its employees to provide practitioners with the knowledge required to deal with related issues and to promote the importance of RG among the wider community.”

The winner of the 2nd Melco RG employee photo competition Mr. Francisco, Alvin Paul Antonio of Studio City’s Wardrobe team, said, “Regular and varied RG activities of different formats including themed photography competitions and quizzes organized by Melco helps to heighten RG awareness among colleagues. In addition to the mandatory RG training that all new-joiners receive, there are plentiful opportunities for colleagues of all levels to further build up their knowledge on RG, which I view as an integral part of contributing to a healthy community.”

In support of the Macao SAR Government’s policies, Melco encourages and facilitates a comprehensive series of responsible gaming training for employees, and offers help to problem gamblers through a series of innovative and proactive strategies. From 2009 to 2018, over 56,000 employees participated in Melco’s responsible gaming awareness activities dedicating more than 1,300 event hours. Aside from employee education and training, to engage the community and raise awareness of RG, Melco recently sponsored a televised public service video promoting healthy gaming practices. In 2016, Melco became the first gaming operator in Macau to install state-of-the-art real-time facial recognition security systems at each of its gaming area entrances to prevent banned persons, including problem gamers, from entering.
