2015 Christmas Season Minors Awareness Campaign

Lottery tickets and scratch cards are fun and interactive, but they are gambling activities for adults that minors should not be participating in.

Whether it’s the holiday season or any time of year, the AGLC encourages everyone not to purchase lottery products for minors.

Purchasing, scratching and cashing-in lottery products are gambling activities, suitable for adults only. Minors should not be encouraged or invited to participate in gambling activities.

Research has previously shown that nearly one fifth of Alberta parents reported that they had given their child a lottery ticket as a holiday or birthday gift. Gambling at an earlier age is also a risk factor associated with problem gambling later in life.

The AGLC’s holiday minor awareness campaign is part of an ongoing educational campaign to ensure both retailers and Albertans know they are key partners in helping to prevent underage gambling.
