State To Use Lottery To Reach Compulsive Gamblers
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) _ The New Jersey Lottery has announced it will place decals bearing a toll- free compulsive gambling telephone number on its 4,300 computerized sales terminals.
Lottery Executive Director Barbara Marrow said Wednesday that distribution of the decals to lottery sales agents will begin later this month and be completed within a week.
The lottery will instruct agents to display the decals on the terminals where they are easily visible, said Ms. Marrow.
The decals read: ″If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call: 1-800-GAMBLER.″
