At the NCEL our goal is to meet our mission in raising money for education while protecting the interests of those who play our games. From the way we design and advertise our games to the tools we develop to help players stay in control of their play, responsible gaming is at the heart of everything we do.
As the lottery has grown in size and profit over the past 11 years, its commitment to operating in a responsible manner has become increasingly important. The lottery’s commitment to maintaining its reputation as a socially responsible organization is its promise to beneficiaries and the state. Part of that promise is providing $1 million a year as the only sponsor of the N.C. Problem Gambling Program and creating a responsible gaming program that is comprised of initiatives aimed at training employees, educating players, marketing responsibly, and collaborating with stakeholders.
