66 US & International Lotteries Raise Awareness About Risks of Youth Gambling This Holiday Season
A total of 66 lotteries and 84 community organizations from around the world have joined the 2023 Gift Responsibly Campaign. Presented by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) and the International Center for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University, the campaign aims to spotlight the risks associated with purchasing lottery tickets for children.
Throughout November and December, participating organizations will work to educate communities about the dangers of gifting lottery tickets to children, raise awareness about the risks of youth gambling and promote responsible gambling practices for those of legal age who choose to gamble. The campaign offers a tiered approach for lotteries, with increasing levels of participation. Participant activities may include but are not limited to public service announcements, social media messaging, digital advertising, in-store signage and retailer training, all united by a singular message: lottery products are not appropriate gifts for children.
Jeffrey Derevensky, Director of the International Center for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors, said: “With the growing social acceptability and opportunities available for gambling on an international level, it is important to remember that even young people may experience gambling-related problems. The Gift Responsibly Campaign is a great reminder for adults not to gift lottery tickets to minors.”
For the sixth consecutive year, 100% of eligible U.S. and Canadian lotteries, and numerous international lotteries and non-lottery organizations have joined the campaign. Endorsed by the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries, the World Lottery Association, and the European Lotteries, the campaign stands as a collaborative, international effort to safeguard the well-being of young people.
“As we embrace the spirit of giving during the holiday season, it’s crucial to recognize that lottery tickets are not suitable gifts for children or teens. We applaud the numerous lotteries and community organizations for joining the campaign to amplify this vital message, fostering public awareness and understanding of the potential risks associated with youth gambling. The Gift Responsibly campaign stands out as one of the largest international responsible gambling awareness campaigns, underlining our collective commitment to safeguarding youth and promoting responsible gambling practices worldwide,” Keith Whyte, Executive Director of NCPG, said.

ACR POKER EXPANDS ITS GROUNDBREAKING SECURITY INNOVATION TO SELECT PLO 4 GAMES
ACR Poker, a leading poker site known for its safe and fair gameplay, has made another big announcement. They are expanding their ACR Reshuffle security innovation for select PLO 4 games.
“We debuted ACR Reshuffle for specific PLO 5 games a few months ago and it received rave reviews from players and poker experts as a great anti-collusion tool,” said ACR Pro Chris Moneymaker. “Now, it’s available for PLO 4 with an eye towards even expanding to Holdem in the future.”
How it works is cards are dealt one player at a time. The next player is dealt their cards only after the first player has made a preflop decision. If that previous player folds, their cards are reshuffled into the deck.
ACR Reshuffle was done in collaboration with GTO Wizard, the leading poker training software. It’s part of ACR Poker’s continuous improvement effort to offer the fairest and safest gaming environment online. A recent ban on third-party tools is another example.
The ACR Reshuffle technology was recently featured in an article on Poker .org and had a very insightful quote from a GTO Wizard spokesperson.
“We’re proud of our collaboration with ACR on the reshuffle feature. The swift implementation highlights the shared commitment both our organizations have to game integrity. As we continue our partnership, we’re eager to introduce more innovations that enhance the trust of online poker, ensuring a bright future for the game.”
