Sharing winning tips about understanding odds, setting budgets, and busting myths helps you Play Smart. This holiday season you can Gift Smart too.
What does it mean to Gift Smart? Think about these two things:
1. You give lottery tickets to the adults in your life
2. You help us keep lottery tickets away from anyone under age 18
For adults, a lottery ticket is a gift with the potential to keep giving. For anyone under 18 a lottery ticket has the potential to introduce harm.
From working with our partners in the area of problem gambling, we know that children are often exposed to gambling through lottery products, given by an adult who may be unaware of how dangerous gambling can be. Some people who developed a gambling problem later in life report their first experience came when they were only 9 to 11 years old.
We encourage you to join us in preventing lottery tickets from ending up in the hands of minors by not giving lottery tickets to those under 18 or sharing the risks with others in your life.
Instead, maybe the kids in your life would enjoy items from their favorite musical artist, TV show, or video game. Gift cards usually go over well too!
Our holiday scratch-offs are perfect for gift exchanges, stocking stuffers, and thank you gifts for the adults in your life. Remember to Play Smart, Gift Smart this holiday season because the lottery is not a kid’s game.
