Penn National Gaming commits to AGA’s responsible gambling campaign


Penn National Gaming (PNG) has become the latest operator to declare its support for the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) ‘Have A Game Plan. Bet Responsibly’ public service campaign.

Launched in September 2021, the initiative is an extension of the Have A Game Plan project that went live in late 2019 to educate sports fans about responsible sports betting.

The campaign focuses on four core principles of responsible wagering, including setting a budget and sticking to it, keeping betting social, knowing the odds and only playing with trusted, regulated operators.

PNG will promote Have A Game Plan responsible sports betting content on its Barstool Sportsbook digital platforms and social media accounts, as well as activate Have A Game Plan in all of its land-based, retail sportsbook locations across the US.

“Responsible gaming is core to our sports betting operations, and we’re thrilled to extend these efforts through our partnership with the AGA’s Have A Game Plan initiative,” PNG’s head of interactive Jon Kaplowitz said.

“Our customers are sports fans first, and this campaign will allow us to educate everyone, whether they are new to sports betting or seasoned bettors, on how to wager responsibly in a fan-friendly way.”

AGA senior vice president Casey Clark added: “Penn National’s expansive digital and land-based footprint will amplify our Have A Game Plan campaign to consumers across the country.

“We are appreciative of Penn National’s significant commitment to the campaign as we collectively work to ensure every sports bettor is equipped with the knowledge to wager responsibly.”

Penn National joins 20 partners and counting in the AGA’s Have A Game Plan campaign, which spans sports leagues, teams, media companies and other gaming companies.

The AGA also has the backing if gambling operators such as DraftKings, Entain and FanDuel, as well as more recently Rush Street Interactive (RSI) and MGM Resorts and BetMGM for the campaign.

In addition, the AGA has secured the support of numerous sports brands such as Madison Square Garden Sports and Madison Square Garden Entertainment,  golf’s PGA Tour, Nascar, the NHL and National Football League teams the New York Jets and Washington Football Team,
