Knowing the risks of buying tickets for minors

It’s a message Atlantic Lottery reminds adults of every year: don’t buy lottery tickets as a holiday gift for minors.
In Atlantic Canada, gambling products and entertainment facilities are only legally available for sale to adults 19 years of age and older. This is because our brains are not fully developed at a young age.

Youth awareness program educates on risks of problem gambling

Studies have shown that youth between the ages of 18 and 24 experience the highest risk of developing gambling problems. Know the Score 2 (kts2) is a program that was developed to focus on this at-risk demographic. The evidence-based, interactive problem gambling awareness program engages university and colleges students in a fun and informative way.
