Our Commitment

MGM Resorts adheres to the American Gaming Association (AGA) Code of Conduct for Responsible Gaming, which became effective on September 15, 2004. Our company has always taken steps to promote responsible gaming, and has long established many of the AGA-prescribed measures. The AGA Code of Conduct represents a broad commitment by the entire gaming industry to make the public aware of responsible gaming resources, and incorporate responsible gaming into business operations.


To promote responsible gaming, MGM
Resorts will continue to:

  • Enforce state law which requires guests to be 21 years of age to gamble in the resort
  • Educate our employees through a variety of programs and methods on responsible gaming policies and procedures
  • Provide information to our employees about resources for assistance with problem gaming
  • Provide information to our patrons, through a variety of methods both at our casinos and on our websites, about responsible gaming, win-loss odds on casino games and resources for assistance with problem gaming
  • Provide our patrons who feel they may have a problem the option of enrolling in our MD Voluntary Exclusion Program, which will cancel their access to our promotional mailings and casino services such as a marker limit (commonly referred to as “credit”), M life privileges
    and check-cashing, the duration of which is 2 years or lifetime.
  • Serve alcoholic beverages responsibly
  • Monitor vigilantly to prevent underage gambling and unattended minors in our casinos
  • Advertise responsibly
  • Fund responsible gaming research
