Responsible Gaming

The Eldorado Resort Casino and its management team are committed to providing the best possible gaming entertainment experience.

We believe that this incorporates actively promoting responsible behavior among our customers. We recognize that, while a majority of our guests participate in gaming activities in a responsible and rational manner, there exist small percentages who do not. Compulsive and underage gambling are serious issues that counteract our goal of providing an enjoyable entertainment experience for all.

As a company, we have educated ourselves on the issue of problem gaming and will continue to update our team on the most recent developments in the identification and response to compulsive and underage gambling. We adhere to industry standards and regulatory requirements. We also have dedicated space on our gaming floor where guests can easily receive information on responsible gaming via print materials. To discourage and limit underage gaming, we have empowered any team member to ask for identification from any suspected minor, and if the individual is underage, we immediately remove him or her from the casino floor.

We also have implemented a "self-restriction "program that allows guests to request not to receive direct marketing materials from the Eldorado Resort Casino and/or to be denied gaming credit privileges. Forms to request self-restriction or self-exclusion are available by contacting the main casino cage.
