The operator says it remains focused on empowering players to bet responsibly.

FanDuel has teamed up with the nationally known non-profit Operation Hope to empower Massachusetts players and encourage responsible gaming.

Operation Hope will work with FanDuel to offer free financial counseling to residents throughout the state through a program called Hope Inside. Players can gain free access to in-person financial health sessions with a financial wellbeing coach, as well as to resources that can help improve credit scores and manage entertainment spending.

Operation Hope President and CFO Brian Betts took a moment to further explain the program.

He said, "Hope Inside is designed to equip clients with the tools and resources required to make informed decisions about their finances.

"Through this partnership with FanDuel, we can help empower those who want to learn how to take control of their finances, which can ultimately lead to less stress and a higher quality of life."

FanDuel said in a statement, “The partnership marks an important evolution of FanDuel's commitment to responsible gaming practices by improving access to personal financial literacy education.”

FanDuel President Christian Genetski commented, "Operation Hope's work has demonstrated that when individuals have a strong foundation of financial literacy, they are better equipped to manage their spending responsibly.

"FanDuel is committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate, and we believe that supporting proven financial literacy programs is a natural extension of our work to promote and empower responsible gaming.

“Partnering with Operation Hope, a leader in the space, to help fund critical financial literacy education and providing access to financial counseling in communities across Massachusetts is the latest evolution in FanDuel's efforts."

Michael Hershman - Dispelling casino 'myths:' New York needs to lose fear of the unknown

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.

Five years ago, before the mass proliferation of social media we see today – and even before the Covid-19 pandemic – I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO talking about “Instagrammable moments.” KPIs w...
