The money will go towards research projects associated with gambling.

MGM Resorts International has donated $360,000 to the International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG). 

The proceeds of this donation will go towards the support of two two-year research projects, which aim to “understand, prevent and address potential risks associated with gambling.” 

The ICRG is a funding source for scientific research on gambling disorders and responsible gambling in the US. 

This latest funding from MGM Resorts will go towards educating treatment providers, researchers, advocates, operators, regulators and public policymakers when it comes to responsible gaming and problem gambling. 

SVP & Chief Compliance Officer, MGM Resorts, Stephen Martino, said: "These research projects are critical to the continued success of the industry and are in the best interest of our guests, company, employees, and the communities where we operate. 

"We're pleased to continue our financial support of the ICRG and its critical work around responsible gaming best practices." 

ICRG President, Arthur Paikowsky, added, "We salute MGM Resorts for supporting our research that will answer the many questions we have about the impact of gender on gambling disorder and address the health risks of casino employees. The ICRG is very grateful for the company's long-standing and continuing support of the ICRG." 

This week has also seen Pollard Banknote announcing its participation in the 2023 Gift Responsibility Campaign, joining a number of other lotteries and organizations across North America and around the world to raise awareness about the risks of underage gambling.
