Viejas Casino & Resort Certified as “Responsible Gambling Facility” for 8th Consecutive Year

Viejas Casino & Resort announced today that it has achieved re-certification as an official “Responsible Gambling Facility” by the California Council on Problem Gambling (CCPG).

In 2007, Viejas Casino & Resort became the first casino in California to gain the certification and is one of three in the state to be re-certified this year. In order to gain certification by the CCPG, Viejas Casino & Resort was required to provide comprehensive training to its Team Members, comply with an extensive list of requirements and demonstrate the willingness and ability to help those affected by problem gambling.

Viejas Casino & Resort General Manager Chris Kelley said, “We have a proud 23-year tradition of providing a safe and entertaining environment for all of our guests. On occasion, though, a very small percentage of guests are impacted by problem gambling. Viejas continues our tradition of identifying and helping those guests and we are proud of the leadership role we have assumed in this area, as a certified Responsible Gambling Facility.”

The other California casinos also earning re-certification this year are San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino in Highland and Redwood Hotel Casino in Klamath.
