PENN's online gaming platforms receive Responsible Gaming Accreditation

8 Feb 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- PENN Entertainment announced that its online gaming platforms, Barstool Sportsbook & Casino and Hollywood, have received Responsible Gaming Check iGaming Accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC). PENN Entertainment subsidiary, PENN Interactive, became the first U.S. operator to voluntarily undergo this accreditation, which is widely regarded as one of the most comprehensive responsible gambling accreditation programs in the world.

PENN has now achieved RG Check accreditation across its Interactive division with subsidiary ‘TheScore Bet’ securing the accreditation prior to its launch in Ontario. At the time, TheScore Bet became the first prospective private market operator in Ontario to achieve the accreditation.

The Responsible Gambling Council developed RG Check in consultation with policy makers, global gambling providers, players and people who have experienced gambling harm. The accreditation process helps gambling operators evaluate, monitor and manage all aspects of their RG strategy.

“RGC would like to congratulate PENN Interactive on achieving RG Check accreditation for U.S. sites: Barstool Sportsbook and,” said Shelley White, CEO, Responsible Gambling Council (RGC). “This accomplishment re-affirms its commitment to player protections and more importantly, making responsible gambling a priority in its operations.
