The Florida Lottery is again partnering with the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) ahead of this year’s Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM).

Taking place during March 2022, PGAM is dedicated to raising awareness of the issues pertaining to gambling and how those affected can access prevention, treatment and recovery services.

The Florida Lottery also supported last year’s cause which used the theme ‘Awareness + Action’

John F Davis, Florida Lottery Secretary, commented: “The lottery is proud to join the NCPG and others in our gaming industry to stress the importance of responsible play and to increase public awareness about problem gaming.

“At the lottery, we make it a priority to educate our players, retailers, and employees year-round on what it means to play responsibly – from playing with discretionary income to recognising when help is needed – we believe this leads to a safer playing environment for everyone.”

Florida Lottery will join a host of other industry leaders with the aim of encouraging responsible gaming, building upon its pledge to provide support for the industry and its players.

In 2018, the NCPG and North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) handed the Florida Lottery the highest level of responsible gaming certification.
