The American Gaming Association has released a Responsible Gaming Regulations & Statutes publication as a collection of the statutes and regulations addressing responsible gaming in the 28 states, plus the District of Columbia, that have commercial casinos or sports betting regulations as of August 31, 2019. It is intended as a reference for industry stakeholders, researchers, lawmakers and regulators.

Responsible gaming requirements generally fall into several broad categories, as detailed in the report. These categories include:

  • Responsible gaming plan
  • Self-exclusion program
  • Property signage and responsible gaming disclosures
  • Advertising restrictions
  • Wager and time limits
  • Credit restrictions
  • Restrictions on financial instruments
  • Treatment and research funding
  • Employee training
  • Restrictions on alcoholic beverages
  • Other: Among other things, states may require their gaming regulators to create a statewide responsible gaming program, submit a study on the effectiveness of responsible gaming provisions or require operators to verify gambling winners do not owe child support.

The central goal of these programs is to ensure that patrons responsibly enjoy casino games as a form of entertainment.
