Penn National Gaming has joined the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Have A Game Plan public service campaign. It has partnered in the campaign along with 20 other groups, which include sports leagues, teams, media companies and other gaming companies.
Penn National now offers legal sports betting in 13 states. It will promote Have A Game Plan responsible sports betting content on its Barstool Sportsbook digital platforms and social media accounts.
The company will also activate Have A Game Plan in all of Penn National’s brick-and-mortar sportsbook locations.
“Responsible gaming is core to our sports betting operations, and we’re thrilled to extend these efforts through our partnership with the AGA’s Have A Game Plan initiative,” said Jon Kaplowitz, Penn National’s Head of Interactive. “Our customers are sports fans first, and this campaign will allow us to educate everyone, whether they are new to sports betting or seasoned bettors, on how to wager responsibly in a fan-friendly way.”
AGA established Have A Game Plan in late 2019 to teach consumers the fundamentals of responsible sports betting. This was in response to legal sports wagering expanding across the US.
The initiative focuses on four key tenets of responsible gaming. Those include setting a budget and sticking to it, keeping betting social, knowing the odds, and playing with trusted, regulated operators.
“Penn National’s expansive digital and land-based footprint will amplify our Have A Game Plan campaign to consumers across the country,” said AGA Senior Vice President Casey Clark. “We are appreciative of Penn National’s significant commitment to the campaign as we collectively work to ensure every sports bettor is equipped with the knowledge to wager responsibly.”
