Holiday Lottery Responsible Gaming Campaign

Each year, NCPG and the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University asks lotteries to to support our responsible gambling campaign and help raise awareness regarding the risks of underage lottery play during the holiday season.

Whether or not it is legal for minors to participate in lottery games in your area, a responsible gaming message during the holidays is always welcomed. In past years the campaign has been endorsed by the  World Lottery Association and NASPL.

Over the past eleven years, participation has grown tremendously. In 2017, 55 lotteries in the US and around the world supported the campaign. In an effort to continue to grow the campaign we have made significant changes in 2018:

 

  • Non-lottery organizations can now participate in the Holiday Lottery Responsible Gaming Campaign.
  • Lotteries can opt to participate at one of three different levels of involvement. The higher the level of participation, the more campaign activities you are asked to commit to.

Participation in the Holiday Campaign is FREE!  To join the Campaign as a participant SIGN UP HERE. Participants will have access to additional campaign resources.  We encourage you to reach out to your local problem gambling advocacy group or state health agency to partner with them in this effort.

Participants must sign up by November 28, 2018 to be included in the official press release and campaign announcements. NCPG Members who participate in the Campaign are also eligible for NCPG’s Holiday Lottery Campaign Award. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the campaign, please contact caith@ncpgambling.org. 

We look forward to your participation!
