Responsible Gambling - Bingos

Many people feel that purchasing lottery tickets is not a serious form of gambling and that minors should be allowed to play. While lottery tickets can be a fun form of entertainment, they should be restricted to adults only. Research shows that minors are three times more likely to develop gambling problems than an adult.

See what the AGLC is doing to raise awareness...

The AGLC is committed to responsible gambling. To help gaming licensees and the public meet the social responsibility requirements set out in legislation, regulation and policy, the AGLC has developed a number of programs and tools. For more information about them, refer to the menu on the left.

The Alberta Lottery Fund provides funding towards Alberta Health Services' budget for gambling and liquor addiction education, prevention and treatment programs and services.

The purpose of the new joint Problem and Responsible Gambling Strategy is to continually review emerging trends and issues in the field to ensure a shared understanding and commitment to priorities and actions in the problem and responsible gambling area. The strategy is posted here for your information.
