LAS VEGAS -- Casinos around Nevada are taking part in a weeklong education campaign to push responsible gambling.

The campaign runs through Friday and is sponsored by the American Gaming Association. This year's theme is "Know the Odds," and features brochures teaching patrons that the house has an advantage in casino games.

Individual casinos are taking their own spin on the responsible gambling blitz.

Harrah's and Harvey's casinos in Lake Tahoe are quizzing employees in break rooms about responsible gambling. People who answer correctly get a chance to spin a wheel for prizes.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. is using brochures and electronic media to remind employees about playing responsibly.

Slot machine manufacturer International Game Technology is also quizzing workers about wise gambling and offering them a chance to win an iPad.
