Lottery Holiday Responsible Gaming Campaign

 

gift-responsibly-portraitNCPG and McGill University ask every lottery to support our responsible gambling campaign regarding underage play during the holiday season. It’s FREE to join! Then the choice is yours in how to participate in the campaign: utilize the 2016 slogan and graphics below or develop your own; issue a press release or distribute ours; post on social media or provide POS flyers to retailers; anything you’d like but above all feel free to be creative and don’t forget to submit your efforts for the annual NCPG Holiday Campaign award. All supporters will be acknowledged in press releases, social media and trade magazine articles. Over the past nine years participation has grown tremendously—last year 42 lotteries in the US and around the world supported the campaign.

The Holiday Lottery campaign is endorsed by the World Lottery Association, North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) and the European Lottery Association (EL). Click here for the WLA campaign brochure.

Join today to help send a positive, responsible gaming message to parents–especially if you have holiday-themed tickets and promotions!

Lotteries should contact Sushmita Upadhaya at sushmitau@ncpgambling.org to join the campaign or with any questions.

2016 Campaign

The 2016 Lottery Holiday Campaign is here! The Campaign is a social responsibility campaign designed for lottery corporations.

This year marks the ninth year that the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) and the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University partnered in this responsible gambling initiative with U.S., Canadian and international lotteries to share this responsible gaming message.

Participation in the Campaign is free for lotteries.Whether or not it is legal for minors to purchase lottery tickets in your area, a responsible gambling message is always appreciated, especially around the holidays. Contact us today if you would like to sign up your lottery. Sample artwork files are available to participating lotteries upon request.

NASPL Endorses the Annual Holiday Campaign

In October, at the annual North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) meeting in Providence, Rhode Island, the NASPL board of directors unanimously approved a resolution encouraging participation in the annual Holiday Campaign. The resolution states that the NCPG/McGill University Holiday Campaign is an effective way to promote responsible gift giving of lottery games and products and that member organizations are encouraged to participate in this effort to the extent allowed by their governing laws and regulations. We are grateful to NASPL for their support and look forward to working with lottery corporations to further share and increase the visibility of this important responsible gambling message.
