California Problem Gambling Awareness Week Arrives

Sacramento, CA — The State Gaming Agency, the California Gambling Control Commission and the Attorney General´s Division of Gambling Control are promoting Gambling Awareness Week through March 12th.

Also involved are the Office of Problem Gambling, the State Horse Racing Board, the State Lottery, the Department of Mental Health and the California Council on Problem Gambling.

While gambling in California provides revenue for state and local governments, jobs for communities and entertainment for responsible patrons, an estimated two to five percent of the general population experiences significant difficulties as a result of gambling, including financial, physical and mental health problems.
