Holiday Lottery Campaign

2013 Holiday Lottery Campaign

The Holiday Lottery campaign encourages parents and loved ones not to give lottery products as holiday gifts to minors. 2013 marks the sixth year that the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) and the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University will partner in this responsible gambling initiative with U.S., Canadian and international lotteries to share this responsible gaming message. We welcome lottery organizations who wish to partner with us in this educational campaign, or who would wish to access our resources (including press release samples) to launch their own independent campaigns on this important topic. Your support plays a key role in sending the message that lottery tickets should not be purchased as holiday gifts for children.

Please contact if you are interested in joining the 2013 campaign.
