New Responsible Gambling Support Centre part of market leading package of initiatives proposed for casino redevelopment

Aquis Entertainment (ASX:AQS) has announced details of a significant package of responsible gambling measures that form part of its bid for the development of a new entertainment precinct in Canberra’s CBD. The proposal includes the establishment of a new Responsible Gambling Support Centre within the redeveloped casino – a first for the ACT – along with a wide-ranging package of initiatives aimed at delivering a broad based market-leading response to the issue.

The centre will be staffed by a dedicated team of responsible gambling support officers and counselors and will provide a proactive and accessible service to customers needing assistance or support. The centre will include an extensive range of resources and private counseling rooms. Staff will provide referrals to a range of specialist gambling support services. The centre will also incorporate a chaplaincy support service – only the second of its kind in an Australian casino.

The Responsible Gambling Support Centre would form the basis of the most comprehensive dedicated harm minimisation facility in any gaming venue in the ACT. See attached media release for further detail.
