It’s National Problem Gambling Awareness Month and just recently, New York State has made it possible for you to put yourself on a list, essentially banning yourself from racetracks and casinos! It’s all in an effort for troubled gamblers to take control of their lives. One woman says each day is a battle to keep herself from betting.
Del Lago Casino says it promotes “responsible gambling,” meaning it’s committed to keeping underage individuals and those on the exclusion or self-exclusion lists away.
There’s a state hotline too. That number is 1-877-8-HOPE-N-Y or send a text to HOPENY.
