San Manuel partners with UNLV to launch responsible gaming programme
In April, the San Manuel Entertainment Authority (SMEA), owned by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, announced a new collaboration with the Las Vegas International Gaming Institute, part of the University of Nevada (UNLV), to work together on the creation of an advanced responsible gambling programme.
The initiative seeks to strengthen standards in the industry and prepare gambling companies for any potential changes in regulation. According to Peter Arceo, a manager for the Yaamava Resort & Casino, the programme will “align with long-held tribal values of community stewardship and putting people before business.”
