Doing Our Part
Since its inception thirty-five years ago as a small, locals casino company, Station Casinos, Inc. has been steadfast in its commitment to promoting responsible gaming practices. As a provider of entertainment that can become problematic for some individuals, we do our best to provide information on the support, treatment and assistance programs available. Our record speaks for itself.

- To enhance access to treatment for those without insurance coverage, in 1999 our company provided $50,000 in start-up funds to Problem Gambling Consultants, an organization that provides low-cost counseling and treatment programs for problem gamblers. We have since contributed an additional $20,000 to problem gambling consultants.

Right to Self Limitation
Station Casinos is committed to promoting public awareness and education and to providing information on available resources to those guests who believe they may have a gambling problem. Our company maintains a program in compliance with Nevada Gaming Commision Regulation 5.170 that allows our guests to voluntarily self-limit themselves from certain activities and privileges, which are provided as a service and convenience. Guests are encouraged to take part in our self-limitation program should they feel they have a gambling problem.
Specifically, our guests can limit their access to the issuance of credit, check cashing, and receiving direct mail marketing promotions distributed by Station Casinos. Once a guest requests to self-limit, he/she cannot rescind his/her request for at least one year.
If a guest wishes to self-limit, he/she should contact the Security Office at any Station Casinos affiliated property. The guest will be asked to show two forms of identification, complete a self-limitation form and be photographed. The completed Self-limit Access form and photo will be distributed to the cage, marketing and security departments at each Station Casinos property as well as to our corporate offices.
After one year, if a guest wishes to rescind their request to Self-limit Access, they will again need to contact the Security Office to verify their identification and complete a Rescind the Request to Self-limit Access form that will then be distributed to the same departments as identified above.
