RG Check

Developed over a seven–year period by The Responsible Gambling Council’s (RGC) Centre for the Advancement of Best Practices, the RG Index is an industry–leading set of responsible gambling standards for all venues with slot machines.

This presentation will provide an overview of the RG Index and the RG Check accreditation program. It will share the program’s successes, lessons learned and plans for the future.

Mr. Kevin Noel oversees finance, administration, human resources, information technology, and the RG Check program for the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC).

Mr. Noel and his team have been the driving force behind the launch, successful roll–out, and delivery of RG Check, Canada’s first accreditation program for gaming venues. Since RG Check’s launch in August 2011, he and his team have initiated the accreditation process in four jurisdictions across the country, with a total of 12 venues accredited to date. Mr. Noel works closely with the CEO and Board of Directors to develop organization–wide strategic business goals and plans for RGC.

He received his Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Finance and Strategy and his Bachelor of Arts with a major in French Language and a minor in English Literature from Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He has also completed advanced level accounting courses at Ryerson University.
