‘Tis the Season to Gift Responsibly. Lottery is Not Child’s Play.

Today, the New Jersey Lottery (NJL) and the Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey, Inc. (CCGNJ) held a press conference to urge parents to use good judgment when making holiday gift selections for their children. During this holiday season, the NJL has joined the CCGNJ, National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), and the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University to build public awareness that lottery products are not an appropriate gift for minors.
