During the month of March, the California Lottery® joins the California Department of Public Health’s Office of Problem Gambling (OPG), and other responsible gaming advocates to promote awareness of gambling disorders and the availability of treatment and recovery programs. No-cost, confidential help for problem gambling is available by calling 1-800-GAMBLER (426-2537), texting SUPPORT to 53342, or by visiting 800gambler.chat for online chat support.

The Lottery supports Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM) through special messaging that can be found on its tickets, at retail locations, on the Lottery’s owned communication channels (like its website and social media) and through paid advertising.

Our collective efforts to support PGAM are a significant part of the Lottery’s responsible gaming program that has been internationally recognized with the highest certifications by the World Lottery Association.
