Gambling Literacy Awareness

Responsible Gambling Awareness Week 2016

“Balance is the Name of The Game” If you choose to gamble, take breaks, set a limit and don’t let it outweigh other activities in your life.

This year’s campaign is an evolution of the previous campaign and is focused on another responsible gambling tip, “Balance is the Name of the Game”. The campaign uses a light-hearted approach to illustrate the importance of gambling responsibly while having fun and balancing gambling with other entertainment activities.

The Gambling Literacy Campaign is Nova Scotia Gaming’s year-round effort to deliver gambling literacy tips to you through a series of videos and activations across the province.

Using an educational “Know the Game” themed game show approach, the goal is to provide adult Nova Scotians the opportunity to learn through engaging content. In the game show, “players” answer questions about how to keep gaming positive and learn healthy play strategies.

Supportive events each year include in-person activities around the province that highlight the work we do all year long to help you understand the odds of winning and losing, as well as understanding the games you play. Here is an overview of recent campaigns.
