Awareness of the negative consequences uncontrolled play can lead to should help children make the right decisions in the future. The CEO of GambleAware noted that few teens are taught about the risks of gambling and the signs of addiction.
The curriculum also contains information on the difference between online and land-based gambling. And the fact that online casinos can lead to the same dire consequences as real establishments. It is also known that the main focus will be on online gambling, as it is the most accessible.
The problem of minors who are fond of gambling has been raised more than once. And it’s not just paranoia. Last year, it was determined that cameramen are targeting not only teenagers, but even children under six. And according to a survey conducted in October 2019, 11% of teens aged 11-16 said they gambled last week.
