Why Is It Important?

Many teenagers try out different gambling activities, like poker, dice, Scratch-offs and sports betting.

Lottery is often perceived as a harmless or low-risk social activity for participants of all ages, and it is not unusual for parents to offer lottery tickets, especially Scratch-offs, to their children.

According to the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors, research shows that minors are at a greater risk of developing a problem with gambling than adults.
