Gaming and lottery supplier Scientific Games has joined the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG)’s “Gift Responsibly. Lottery Tickets Aren’t Child’s Play” holiday campaign to discourage giving underage players lottery tickets as gifts.
Scientific Games has participated in the campaign since 2018, and is the only lottery supplier participant. The campaign is endorsed by the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) and the World Lottery Association (WLA).
“Thanks again to Scientific Games for their support of this important responsible gambling campaign,” NCPG executive director Keith Whyte said. “Vendors play an important role in providing responsible gambling services to their lottery customers and in educating their own employees.”
Carla Schaefer – Scientific Games’ VP responsible gaming – said lottery games were not designed for children and so it was proud to support the initiative again.
