Industry veteran Dr. Jennifer Shatley will lead the initiative as the Executive Director.

The Responsible Online Gaming Association (ROGA) has formed a new charter that aims to develop and advance responsible gaming practices.

ROGA launched the initiative in collaboration with seven of the country’s largest and well-known mobile gaming operators.

BetMGM, bet365, DraftKings, Fanatics Betting and Gaming, FanDuel, Hard Rock Digital and Penn Entertainment currently represent ROGA’s member companies.

Along with kicking off this effort, the group has selected Dr. Jennifer Shatley to lead the charter as its Executive Director. She is considered an expert in the field of responsible gaming and has more than 25 years of experience in the gambling industry.

Her role as Executive Director will involve “facilitating widespread education to all relevant parties on the subject of responsible gaming.”

Shatley expressed her excitement to take on this new role by saying, "I am humbled, honored, and excited to be selected to lead ROGA during this important period of growth in legalized mobile gaming.

"Many of America's largest legal mobile gaming operators will be establishing a framework that helps to aid in responsible gaming education and awareness.”

She went on to add that the team will collaborate with a wide variety of experts and researchers on the project.

She concluded by saying, “Together, our members will work alongside researchers, experts, regulators and stakeholders to promote responsible online gaming and maximize our efforts to support additional responsible gaming education and awareness.

“By coming together with a clear set of objectives, ROGA and our members will work to enhance consumer protections and help provide easier and more efficient access to responsible gaming tools for consumers to enjoy the entertainment of online gaming."
