Most gambling advertising campaigns include disclaimers about problem gambling.
The American Gaming Association also wants to ensure that those disclaimers provide problem gamblers with clear and direct information.
Moreover, the AGA announced Tuesday that it will encourage gaming operators and related businesses. This will streamline requirements for national advertising campaigns.
“Problem gambling helplines are an invaluable resource for those in need,” said Jessica Feil, AGA Vice President of Government Relations and Gaming Policy Counsel.
“Unfortunately, long lists of state-specific helplines on national advertisements create barriers for those seeking assistance. Hence, we should be making these critical resources easily accessible.”
