Holiday Lottery Responsible Gambling Campaign

Each year, the National Council on Problem Gambling (Washington, D.C.) and the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) invite lotteries to participate in the Holiday Lottery Responsible Gambling Campaign. This campaign is designed to raise awareness about 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 gambling message during the holidays is always important. In 2018, 100% of U.S. and Canadian lotteries participated in the campaign, as well as a number of international lotteries and 48 non-lottery organizations. Participation in the campaign is FREE. The campaign features three levels of engagement enabling lotteries to educate communities in a means that best fits existing communication styles. Organizations are free to use the provided materials or create their own based upon the campaign guidelines.
