A group of Sands China’s Responsible Gaming Ambassadors assisted in a two-day virtual reality film experience last month, at a responsible gaming promotion for students at the University of Saint Joseph.
The event was in support of the Macau government’s efforts to promote responsible gaming in the community, and was organized by the Sheng Kung Hui Macau Social Services Coordination Office. It aimed to educate students about Macau’s gaming industry, the importance of responsible gaming, and how to spot signs of gambling addiction and the behaviors of problem gamblers.
Participants in the May 15 and 22 interactive sessions experienced an immersive 180-degree virtual reality movie on gambling disorders, which was followed by a discussion on the feelings experienced and practical advice related to responsible gaming.
“Sands China was very pleased to support this unique event in promotion of the importance of responsible gaming,” said Winnie Wong, chief responsible gaming officer and vice president of special gaming projects. “Our Responsible Gaming Ambassadors have received advanced training in responsible gaming from leaders in this field, and this event presented a great opportunity to take their learning beyond our properties.”
