National Council on Problem Gambling reminds us to gift responsibly

In a press release published earlier this week, the National Council on Problem Gambling shared information discouraging gift giving of lottery tickets and other related items to minors this holiday season.

From the release, “Lottery tickets may be fun-filled and exciting presents, but they are not suitable gifts for minors. Studies suggest that gambling is a popular yet risky activity among youth. Additionally, researchers have reported a correlation between age of gambling onset and problem gambling later in life. Lottery play is sometimes an initial introduction to gambling activities for minors.”

Read the full press release here, and please pass it along to remind others that “Lottery tickets aren’t child’s play.”
