Lottery Tickets Aren’t Child’s Play
This holiday season, Your Life Iowa encourage you to gift responsibly. According to the National Council on Problem Gambling, young people report their first gambling experience on average occurs around 9-11 years of age. Lottery scratch tickets have been shown to present a possible gateway to other gambling activities. Early gambling experiences are a risk factor for later problem gambling. Please keep this information in mind when buying gifts for those in your life, or for yourself.
