Problem Gambling Resources in Wisconsin
The Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling Joins the 2023 Gift Responsibly Campaign to Raise Awareness of Youth Gambling Risks
The Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling encourages adults not to give lottery tickets to underage children/teens as holiday gifts – many problem gamblers report that they began gambling during childhood. “Problem gambling is a growing concern among adolescents. We feel it’s important to let parents, grandparents and others know that lottery tickets are not a good gift choice for children”, says Rose Blozinski, WCPG Executive Director.
“The potential long-term risks associated with underage gambling exposure cannot be understated,” said Keith Whyte, NCPG Executive Director. “I commend each Gift Responsibly Campaign participant for their commitment to raising awareness about the risks of youth gambling. Now, more than ever, we must continue to insist that lottery tickets are never appropriate gifts for children.”
