The Florida Lottery joins the American Gaming Association (AGA), North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL), the World Lottery Association (WLA), and other industry partners to celebrate Responsible Gaming Education Week, September 13-19, 2020.
Responsible gaming is an integral part of the Florida Lottery’s daily operations. Florida Lottery Chief of Staff Samantha Ferrin said, “We make it a priority to educate our players and employees year-round on what it means to play responsibly. As part of this initiative we launched an award-winning website earlier this year called the Player’s Guide, which offers essential resources on how to play and win responsibly.”
Florida Lottery games are designed to be a fun, low-cost form of entertainment with the added benefit of generating additional revenue for Florida’s students and schools. The Lottery encourages all players to practice responsible gaming by following these tips designed to help players make informed decisions throughout their Lottery experience:
- NEVER think of the Lottery as a way to make money
- ALWAYS play within your means and set a budget
- NEVER chase your losses
- ALWAYS know when to ask for help
- NEVER play when you are upset or depressed
The Florida Lottery has an ongoing commitment to promoting responsible gaming and holds Responsible Gaming Certifications from WLA, NASPL, and the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG). If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, the Florida Lottery encourages you to contact the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG) at 1-888-ADMIT-IT, or the National Problem Gambling Helpline at 1-800-522-4700 for confidential help.
