March 9 - 15 is Problem Gambling Awareness Week. The Missouri Lottery, as a member of the Missouri Alliance to Curb Problem Gambling, is working to promote the issue of Problem Gambling in Missouri. Radio advertising will remind Missouri residents about the free resources available to people who experience a problem with gambling. Additionally, the week is designed to raise awareness about the issue and educate family members on how to recognize the warning signs.
If you or someone you know is having problems with gambling, help is just a phone call away. Call 1-888-BETS OFF to speak with a professional counselor.
