Lottery launches responsible gambling training for retailers and servers

by Chuck Baumann | Jun 21, 2016

Beginning this month, the Oregon Lottery is launching “Responsible Gambling & You,” an online training program for Lottery retailers and their employees.

“This training is one facet of the Lottery’s far-reaching responsible gambling program and illustrates our commitment to working at every level of the business to mitigate harm that can arise from gambling,” noted Lottery Commission Chair Mardilyn Saathoff.

The Lottery created the training to enable video lottery retailer staff to recognize and take advantage of opportunities to direct people to resources and help related to gambling.

“Promoting responsible gambling practices and connecting people to help when needed is as integral to our mission as maximizing revenue,” said Acting Lottery Director Barry Pack. “We are proud to partner with our retailers to bring this awareness to their employees.” 

Employees from 42 Dotty’s locations are the first to pilot the training program that helps front line staff recognize opportunities to provide information on gambling and resources for problem gamblers in the context of providing excellent customer service.

“We are delighted to partner with the Oregon Lottery to promote responsible gaming. The overwhelming number of our customers play the Lottery for entertainment and fun. So we share with the Oregon Lottery a strong commitment to delivering the best possible experience for our customers and we applaud the Lottery for developing this new training program that will enable our employees to recognize and address problem gaming situations as they may arise,” said Dotty’s owner Dan Fischer, President of Oregon Services Inc., which operates the popular Dotty’s chain of restaurants.

Dotty’s is supplying employees with electronic tablets to take the interactive course. Employees can take the training on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. The Lottery worked with Janine Robinson, an international problem-gambling expert, to design training that teaches front line retailer staff how to provide accurate information about Lottery games, such as the odds of winning and how the games work and resources related to responsible gambling and problem gambling.

The Lottery plans to roll out this training to all its video lottery retailers during the summer months. “Providing this training to customer service staff is an important step in promoting awareness of problem gambling and the importance of responsible gambling,” said Oregon Council on Problem Gambling Executive Director Tom Moore. “The Lottery has worked closely with its council partners on this project and we congratulate the Lottery and its retailers for bringing this important information to retailer staff.”

    Before you get your hopes up: no, you still can't buy an hermes outlet uk for Birkin or Kelly Bag online, straight from the brand. (Although there are certainly other places you can pick one up.) Beyond those two highly sought-after designs, though, now's the best time ever to be buying brand new Hermès bags on the Internet, thanks to the brand's own online store. As quotidian as that sounds in The Year of Our Lord 2016, it does make Hermès something of an anomaly among its top-tier competitors in the luxury accessory market. Hermès doesn't have a direct competitor in the fashion industry--its handbags are the most expensive and most universally highly regarded in the world.Louis vuitton replica, Chanel and sometimes Céline come close, though, as far as offering rarified ultra-luxury accessories, and all of those brands are varying levels of stingy when it comes to selling their bags online. Chanel and Céline decline to participate in the practice entirely (although Chanel's entrance into the online accessories market is said to be forthcoming), and although Louis Vuitton sells its lower-priced canvas bags and some leather online, you have to contact the brand by phone or in person to get exotics. That hasn't been the case with Hermès for quite a while, and it's certainly not the case right now--not only are lots of the brand's popular best replica breitling available, but most of them are available in multiple sizes, abundant colors and, for some of them, even the brand's ultra-rare exotic leathers. Luxury brands have long shied away from e-commerce because it threatened their traditional senses of exclusivity and rarity, and when consumers no longer associate those ideas with a high-end designer, they're usually also no longer willing to pay top-tier prices for goods bearing its name. Hermès, though, is proof of replica soccer jerseys concept for the idea that online availability doesn't necessarily cheapen a brand's value in the eyes of consumers.
