With gaming being a core component of Mindil Beach Casino & Resort, it is our belief that Host Responsibility is both good for business, because it is consistent with having a sustainable operation and most of all, it is the right thing to do.
We are aware that our business has the potential to contribute to negative social impacts in relation to both problem gambling and excessive alcohol consumption.
We are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen, and as such, we take these efforts very seriously. We have introduced several Host Responsibility initiatives to address problem gambling:
All Mindil Beach Casino & Resort staff, irrespective of their areas of operation, receive training in Host Responsibility, ranging from an introductory level of training for back-of-house staff, to specialist advanced training in the identification and handling of problem gambling for senior front-of-house staff and management. Training modules are developed in consultation with senior problem-gambling-treatment providers.
Mindil Beach Casino & Resort offers a self-exclusion option to customers who believe they may have a gambling problem. Under this option, customers volunteer to exclude themselves from entering Mindil Beach Casino & Resort.
Find out more about our self exclusion policy.
The Gambling Counselling Helpline is available on 1800 858 858, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and this service is free, independent and confidential.
