Responsible Gambling Council awards theScoreBet RG igaming accreditation

Penn National Gaming’s theScoreBet subsidiary has received RG check igaming accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council in a bid to deliver the best and safest possible experience“.

The standard has been developed in consultation with policy makers, gambling providers, players and people who have experienced gambling harm, and aims to help gambling operators evaluate, monitor and manage all aspects of their responsible gaming strategy. 

“Congratulations to theScore Bet on achieving RG Check Accreditation,” explained Shelley White, CEO of the Responsible Gambling Council.

“This achievement is a strong demonstration of Penn National Gaming’s leadership in responsible gambling and prioritising transparency, player education, and harm minimisation in theScore Bet’s operations. 

“RG Check Accreditation is an important tool for continuous improvement, providing operators with feedback and insights that help increase the effectiveness of their RG programming and manage risk. RGC commends theScore Bet on their leadership.”

In addition to attaining accreditation from the Toronto, Canada-based independent non-profit, theScore Bet has also previously achieved GLI-33 certification Gaming Laboratories International for Ontario.

This, the group says, saw it become “the first prospective online gaming operator” to secure such Certification in Ontario, satisfying one of the pre-launch requirements to offer internet sports betting and igaming as a regulated operator in its home province.

“Receiving RG check accreditation demonstrates our unwavering commitment to responsible gaming,” commented Josh Sidsworth, general counsel and chief compliance officer of theScore Bet

“We elected to undergo RG check accreditation to ensure that we are positioned to deliver the best and safest possible experience for our players. 

“It was important to us that we completed this accreditation ahead of theScore Bet’s launch in our home market of Ontario. 

“We’re also pleased to deepen our relationship with the Responsible Gambling Council as we further establish our responsible gaming thought leadership position in Canada.”
