Each spring, the Louisiana Lottery steps up its efforts to encourage responsible play by joining the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) in its observance of National Problem Gambling Awareness Week. After ten years of successful campaigns, NCPG is expanding its 2014 observance to the entire month of March.
While the Lottery promotes responsible play on its tickets and promotional materials throughout the year, observing National Problem Gambling Awareness Month gives the corporation an additional opportunity to encourage smart playing practices.
“Lottery games are a great form of entertainment, and we are committed to helping our players keep it fun,” said Lottery President Rose Hudson. “That’s why we support efforts to raise awareness of problem gambling and to provide help for those who need it.”
