GambleAware has revealed the industry’s donations towards research, education and treatment programmes in the 2023/24 fiscal year’s first quarter.

Over the course of 2022, The Brook revealed that it has donated over $4m, around 35 per cent of all its gaming revenue, to local charities.

One of America’s largest charity casinos, located near the New Hampshire-Massachusetts border, The Brook provides funds to more than 100 area organisations on a rotating basis. 

“Seeing the potential of New Hampshire’s charity casino model is what brought us home to build The Brook,” said Andre Carrier, CEO of The Brook. “These numbers show how significantly our business can provide for essential service organisations in New Hampshire.”

In 2019, Nevada-based Eureka Casino Resort acquired The Brook and since then, the latter has distributed a total of over $8m to organisations such as Make-A-Wish New Hampshire, Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire, Annie’s Angels and Rockingham Nutrition Meals on Wheels.

Carrier continued: “Every day, people are confronted by real problems that need to be solved; from hunger to addiction to suicide prevention. And there are incredible people serving these causes across the Granite State at hundreds of charities. 

“Our 100 per cent employee-owned company has provided millions to these essential charities, and the continued remodel and expansion of The Brook should indicate it is our intention to raise millions more in service to New Hampshire.”

Earlier this year, The Brook unveiled an expanded gaming area and added nearly 500 gaming machines including Buffalo Gold, Ultimate Fire Link and China Shores as it became the first casino in the state to offer Historical Horse Racing machines.

“The Brook motto is ‘Live Free and Play’, Carrier concluded. “These fundraising numbers show how having fun and doing good goes so perfectly hand in hand at The Brook.”

The 75-acre property, which is 40 miles from Boston, also offers table games such as blackjack, roulette, craps, and Cajun Stud, the state’s only Stadium Gaming area with live dealers and digital screens, simulcast racing seven days a week, and an 18-table poker room that runs daily cash games and giveaways.
