Lobster Mascot Raises Awareness About Responsible Gambling in Bangor
An oversized lobster has been hanging around hollywood casino in Bangor, not at the buffet mind you.We caught up with “Clawd” the lobster in the hotel’s lobby on Tuesday.He’ll be at the Kenny Chesney concert on Wednesday. It’s part of the casino’s efforts to educate people about responsible gambling.Clawd and his handler Stephan are handing out brochures and stickers to promote the cause.”This year’s theme is ‘How do you say responsible gaming?’ so that was kind of the genesis for ‘Clawd’ our French speaking lobster mascot because that embraces the diversity of both our patrons and are customers because really no matter what language you speak we should all speak responsible gaming,” said John Gibboni, Director of Finance at Hollywood Casino. Hollywood Casino is hosting an international-themed Responsible Gaming Education Eeek event Friday afternoon from 2-5pm in the Expo Hall. Attendees will be entered into a drawing for prizes.For more information about the group behind Responsible Gaming Week visit Americangaming.org.
