UK Government Suggests Responsible Gambling Campaign

Along with several reforms announced by the UK Government's Department of Culture, Media and Sport on Wednesday, it revealed plans encourage a GBP 2 million responsible gambling campaign focused on younger gamblers.

The gambling industry would be responsible for funding the project which is believed to launch later in the year.

The government has also suggested the "Think 25 Initiative" requiring gambling establishments to id those that look under the age of 25.

The full version of the "Gambling Protections and Controls" is available at:

    Even though online gaming is illegal in the US, most states have legalized the lottery and are enjoying the benefits of the tax dollars that they bring. As in most countries, the legal age to buy lottery tickets in the US is eighteen. I myself can never seem to be able to guess any ones correct age. I rarely see anyone get carded to buy lottery. I think that just like drug use that has a beginning or gateway drug that leads to more drugs, I also believe that eighteen is too young to be doing any kind of gambling. We really should keep these kinds of things away from young people a little longer. We should prohibit drinking, gambling and maybe even driving until they are more mature and their brains are more fully developed.
