Gaming Activity Report

A Gaming Activity Report can tell you how much you’ve spent on slot machines based on your Club Card use. Use it to monitor your gambling budget and to set spending limits that are sensible for you.

Gaming Activity Reports provide information on:

  • Dollars played
  • Dollars won
  • Jackpots won
  • Estimated win/loss total (on a quarterly or annual basis)

 

Sample Report

For your personalized Gaming Activity Report, bring your Club Card and photo I.D. to an Informed Gambling Centre or speak with the Operations Manager at the Shark Club.

Chatting with Kids About Gambling

Kids are exposed to gambling long before they’re adults. From fundraisers and raffles to fantasy sports leagues and some aspects of video games, gambling is all around them. Teens and young adults are at a higher risk of developing problems with gambling, often because they’re exposed in ways that don’t look like traditional casino gambling. The more you know about how gambling works and what they are experiencing, the better equipped you are to help them make smart choices.
