March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month
The Iowa Gaming Association's Members Want to Make Problem Gambling Resources Easily Accessible
The Iowa Gaming Association's members will be participating in the National Council on Problem Gambling's Problem Gambling Awareness Month. The goal of this campaign is to educate about the warning signs of problem gambling and promote the availability of help and hope.
More than 98 percent of people going to a casino can gamble responsibly for the intended fun and entertainment experience. For those needing help, the IGA joins the NCPG in encouraging everyone to Have the Conversation about Problem Gambling. In some cases, problem gamblers suffer in silence because they don’t know why they developed a problem, what gambling addiction is or where to get help.
The IGA provides links to several local and national resources to assist problem gamblers in finding assistance. You can find these resources under the "Responsible Gaming" tab at the top of this page; here is a shortcut:
Please gamble responsibly ... And bet with your head, not over it!
