Through their joint charitable venture, the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative, the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) have committed $200,000 to the Dr. Robert Hunter International Problem Gambling Center over the next two years.

The gift was made in part to highlight the importance of Responsible Gaming Education Week 2019, running September 15-21 and organized by the American Gaming Association (AGA) as a national push for responsible gaming education, training and awareness that includes participation from many industry stakeholders.

Executive Director Stephanie Goodman said, “We are so grateful for the incredibly generous donation that AGEM and GLI have pledged to our center. The unprecedented transformation of our clients during our six-week Intensive Outpatient Program developed by Dr. Rob Hunter, speaks volumes to the effectiveness of a program that combines group therapy with cognitive-behavioral therapy and science. Because of this generous gift from our industry partners, AGEM and GLI, this money will have a direct impact on problem gamblers in our community. Problem gambling, officially termed as a Gambling Disorder in the DSM-5, is recognized as an addictive disorder, alongside alcohol and drug use disorder.  PGC is working to educate our community in an effort to remove the stigma associated with this disease while at the same time, healing the clients who commit to our program.”

Commenting for the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative, GLI Spokesperson Lori Sayde said, “AGEM and GLI, through the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative, support the Problem Gambling Center because its multi-pronged approach to helping individuals through evaluation, treatment and counseling, regardless of their ability to pay, is an essential service.”

“We are also pleased to make this contribution as Responsible Gaming Education Week kicks off, and to join forces with the countless operators, suppliers, regulators, and organizations that are united in the fight against problem gambling and who are committed to supporting programs that help individuals affected by this disorder,” Sayde continued.

This is the first joint effort by AGEM and GLI through the Initiative to support responsible gaming. Separately, both companies have long histories of supporting responsible gaming efforts in policy and in financial support.

“AGEM has been a supporter of the amazing work done by the Problem Gambling Center in Las Vegas since our inception and our annual contributions over the past 20 years now total nearly $1 million,” AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater said. “We are still saddened by Dr. Hunter’s untimely passing last year, but are encouraged by the motivation of the PGC team to carry on his powerful legacy that assists so many Nevadans in need.”

AGEM and GLI announced the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative earlier this year and made its first gift to the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering building fund at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, which was a $500,000 contribution.

Plaza Hotel & Casino to give away vintage coin operated slot and video poker machines in October

Plaza-giveaway Plaza Hotel & Casino to give away vintage coin operated slot and video poker machines in OctoberReading Time: 1 minute

 

Paying homage to its vintage Vegas gambling roots, the Plaza Hotel & Casino will have two special casino contests to give away a dozen classic coin machines, including traditional slot, keno and video poker games, some of which are more than 25 years old.

While the coin machines like Joker Poker, Deuces Wild and Catch the Heat have nostalgic popularity, they are not compatible with new slot technologies and cannot track points and play. The vintage machines have also become increasingly harder to maintain. As a result, the Plaza will be taking them out of service and giving them away as part of two casino promotions in October.

A video poker tournament will occur every Tuesday in October. The winner of each week’s tournament will receive a classic coin operated video poker machine as the grand prize. In addition, the Plaza will host a points challenge from Oct. 1 through Oct. 29. Players can earn points throughout the month playing reel slots, video poker and video keno. The eight players with the highest points accumulated over the month will win a coin machine (keno, slot or video poker game).

“These machines are a part of Vegas history, and we wanted to give our locals a chance to have their own piece of our city’s great legacy,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino.

To be eligible to win a machine, participants must be Nevada residents with valid Nevada ID, 21-years of age or older, and members of the Plaza’s Royal Rewards players club. Winners will have seven days to pick up their coin machine and will be responsible for future maintenance. Full contest rules are online.
