DraftKings has announced the appointment of its first Chief Responsible Gaming Officer, with Lori Kalani assuming the role. 

The aim of this role is to continue elevating and integrating DraftKings’ player safety and protection activities across all aspects of the business and player communities. 

The operator’s responsible gaming initiatives use technology, employee training, evidence-based research, collaboration with third parties/advocacy groups and player education to ensure responsible play across its platforms and within its player communities. 

Kalani brings experience in consumer protection law and her work has seen her engage with regulators, attorney generals and other key stakeholders. 

Her roles have seen Kalani work in industries including gaming, social media, telecommunications, hospitality and healthcare, while she was a partner at the Cozen O’Connor law firm and Co-Chaired the State Attorneys General Practice. 

DraftKings CEO and Co-Founder Jason Robins said: “Responsible gaming is one of our top priorities and it is a core part of our mission to build games that our customers can enjoy responsibly.  

“In this leadership role, Lori will further advance our responsible gaming initiatives and uphold our commitment to setting new industry standards.” 

Kalani herself added: “I have long admired DraftKings’ impact as an entertainment and engagement platform that brings a community of gaming enthusiasts together.  

“Joining DraftKings represents an exciting opportunity for me to bolster the efforts of the company and look for opportunities to reinforce our responsible gaming initiatives.  

“I am eager to partner with colleagues, regulators, industry leaders, and community advocates to further demonstrate DraftKings’ commitment to responsible gaming and promote a healthy gaming environment for all customers.”
