CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - On Friday, September 1, Governor Mark Gordon signed a proclamation declaring September as Responsible Gaming Education Month in Wyoming.
The state joins the American Gaming Association in celebrating their 25th year of Responsible Gaming Education Month to underscore responsible gaming nationwide for employees, customers, and the Wyoming community. This month brings together the gaming industry, advocacy groups, regulators, and other key stakeholders to educate the public about responsible gambling and promote consumer education and gaming literacy. “It’s a very important step in educating our Wyoming citizens, it’s an opportunity for us at the gaming commission to communicate with stakeholders, with individuals throughout our state, and try to empower people to play responsibly.” says Charles Moore, director of Wyoming Gaming Commission.
Responsible play starts with a game plan, whether you’re a new or seasoned player, these tips can help you keep betting fun:
1) Set a budget & stick to it: There’s no one-size to budgeting as everyone’s risk tolerance and entertainment budget is different. You can establish your own limits by developing a set of personal guidelines to determine when and how much to wager.
2) Keep it social: Play with friends, family, and others. Responsible play means keeping it social and ensuring your gaming remains fun.
3) Learn the game: Whether sports betting, iGaming, slots or table games, there are rules and odds for every game. Take the time to understand how the games you’re playing work.
4) Play Legally: Always bet with legal operators who are licensed by state and tribal regulators that ensure fair play and protect players.
Sara Beth Lyon, the P.I.O. and Responsible Gaming Liaison says, “Here in the state, especially with how much gaming has grown over the past five years or so,we wanted to really make a statement that, yeah we do have gaming but we also want to make sure that people are being responsible.”
