RG24seven partners with AGA to launch free anti-money laundering course for gaming employees

Video-based training platform for gaming employees RG24seven Virtual Training has joined hands with the American Gaming Association (AGA) to launch a free-of-charge anti-money laundering (AML) virtual training course.

The training is based on the AGA’s Best Practices for AML Compliance, a guide on AML within the casino environment developed “by the country’s top compliance professionals,” the company noted in a statement. The course offers 16 chapters with interactive tests, providing insights into identifying suspicious activities, reporting requirements, and the procedures necessary to remain compliant with regulations.

Providing anti-money laundering training is vital to ensure that casinos remain free from financial crimes and maintain the trust of their patrons. These proactive measures align with the industry’s broader goal of promoting responsible gaming and creating a secure and transparent environment for all,” Wendy Anderson, CEO of RG24seven Virtual Training, said.

“This new resource further demonstrates our industry’s leadership on AML compliance and commitment to protecting the U.S. financial system from illicit activity,” added Alex Costello, AGA Vice President of Government Relations. “Coupling our best practices with expert trainers, the training distills key learnings and delivers education in an interactive format to deepen employee knowledge and support a culture of compliance.”  

The RG24seven Virtual Training platform allows us to deliver effective, engaging, and compliance-grade training program. When applied to Anti-Money Laundering, virtual training becomes a tool for successfully educating casino employees and gaming regulators. This collaboration with the AGA provides training that is not only informative but also immersive, at no cost to casino operators or their employees, Anderson added.

RG24seven, a BMM Innovation Group (BIG) company, also recently began offering an exclusive course led by law enforcement and gaming industry veteran David Vialpando specifically tailored to address active shooter and critical incidents in the casino environment.

And back in August, the company launched an exclusive course on slot machines. Titled ‘Introduction to Slots’, the course offers a comprehensive overview of slot machine intricacies.
