New York Organization Launches New Problem Gambling Campaign

This week, the New York State Department of Addiction Services and Support announced that it would launch a new campaign to help local residents who gamble. The campaign is called “Stick to the Game Plan,” which aims to raise awareness of compulsive gambling and how gamblers can prevent the harm caused by gambling. The program will run until April 1, 2022.

“Game Plan Master” is a multi-faceted campaign broadcast on radio and social media channels to help gamblers prevent unwanted gambling addiction, offering some tips to gambling fans and highlighting problems that can arise in the state of obsessive gamblers.

Chinazo Cunningham, a member of the organization, spoke about the new campaign. She explained that as the state’s gambling options increase, it is important to remind people of the importance of responsible games and provide instructions on how to avoid the risk of addiction. The expert also mentioned that it is useful for parents to discuss the issue with their children.

Mr Cunningham said the new campaign will not only provide people with the tools they need to prevent obsessive gambling disorder, but also provide guidance on how to seek help if they need it. The campaign will run until April 1, 2022 and will be broadcast on radio platforms and social media. There are videos that people can watch on YouTube, too.

The organization’s “Stick to the Game Plan” will provide responsible gaming advice, such as limiting the amount of time and money players spend while gambling. Another example of useful advice for gamblers is restricting the use of alcohol and other substances while gambling. And it’s also a reminder that gambling is not for people under 21.

In addition, the campaign also guides people experiencing such compulsive gambling disorders on how to find help. People can call (877) 8-HOPENY (877-846-7369), text HOPENY (short code 467369), or contact the local Problem Gambling Resource Center in New York State.

Earlier this year, the New York State Problem Gambling Commission began preparing to launch mobile sports betting in the state. The organization noted that gambling addiction will become increasingly common among players as the number of services provided by the state increases. It also asked for a much larger budget of about $20 million to address the issue.

Recently, even more Empire State organizations have launched campaigns on problem gambling. In December 2021, for example, New York’s Responsible Play Partnership launched a new public service campaign designed to raise awareness about the drawbacks of gifting lottery tickets to minors named “Responsibility is always a bright idea.” The purpose of the campaign was to remind people that lottery tickets should not be presented to minors.
