The Torino Pools Lottery wants everyone to enjoy playing lottery games and wants everyone to play them responsibly. We believe that one problem gambler is one too many. Most people gamble for fun and use money from their entertainment budget to go to a casino or a horse race, to play cards or bingo or to buy a lottery ticket.
But, according to the City Council on Problem Gambling, a few people, about three percent of adults, experience gambling-related problems. These people cannot safely manage any kind of wagering. They have a disease called problem gambling. Luckily there is help for those who think they or someone they care about might have a problem with gambling.
A number of private organizations offer assistance and we do as well. Because we're an agency whose mission is to provide public benefits, individuals with gambling problems and their families can find information, counseling and assistance for problem gambling at Torino Pools Lottery Retailers, the Problem Gambling Help Line at: 0808 8020 133. Or you can visit BeGambleAware website for more information.
