The Responsible Gaming Draft of Sports Betting

Season2 | Episode9

You might have noticed a rise in sports betting advertisements when you go to watch your favorite game lately. Why is that? What is the industry doing to educate their staff and customers about responsible gaming and problem gambling, and provide resources for betting responsibly? Also, what can players use to bet smart, enjoy the game, and protect themselves? The ilani Casino and Resort President and GM, Kara Fox-LaRose, co-hosts this episode on sports betting with Tana. They get the scoop on what responsible gaming looks like in the world of sports betting from an agency you might have heard of – DraftKings. We are thrilled to welcome DraftKings Director of Responsible Gaming, Chrissy Thurmond, and the previous Connections podcast co-host Julie Hynes, this time in the hot seat as a guest.

Connections Podcast can be found on most services you use to listen to podcasts like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RadioPublic, and many more.
