Hard Rock International runs casinos around the world, so a major responsible gaming program like Players Edge will make a difference. Paul Pellizzari was recently hired as Hard Rock’s vice president of global social responsibility and is responsible for implementing the program. Pellizzari discusses the different aspects of Players Edge, from the education of the players to the recognition by employees of symptoms of problem gambling. He talks about the research that went into Players Edge and why he believes it will be an important cog in the wheel that will be able to truly help patrons afflicted with problem gambling. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the GGB offices in Las Vegas soon after the program was announced in December.
