March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month

January 05, 2023

Run by the National Council on Problem Gambling, Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM) in the US provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the signs of problem gambling, and the resources that are available to get help. During March, PGAM brings together a wide range of stakeholders, including public health organizations, treatment providers, advocacy groups and gambling operators so that they can work collaboratively to let people know that help is available. That’s why we have provided funding of over $300,000 to support problem gambling councils across the US including, the National Council on Problem Gambling, National Problem Gambling Helpline, Nevada Council on Problem Gambling, International Center for Responsible Gaming, Illinois Council on Problem Gambling, California Council on Problem Gambling, Oklahoma Association on Problem Gambling & Gaming, Council on Compulsive Gambling of Pennsylvania, and we have plans to provide funding to more services in future. If you have any questions around our commitments, please reach out to the Responsible Gameplay team for more information at [email protected]. Aristocrat encourages everyone who needs information or advice about problem gambling to contact a local service or helpline (see the list of help services on our website).
