Aug. 9, 2016 - Salem, Ore. – The North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries and the National Council on Problem Gambling has certified the Oregon Lottery’s responsible gambling program. The Oregon Lottery is one of the first four lotteries in the county to receive the prestigious certification.

NASPL and the council are partners in establishing this certification program to help elevate the quality of lottery responsible gambling programs, recognize quality programs and promote best practices. Program certification officials examine all elements of a lottery’s responsible gambling program. Officials award a “Plan” certification for a lottery that is still in the planning phase of its program, an “Implementation” certification for implementing an advanced responsible gambling program with measured results, and a “Sustaining” certification for successfully sustaining a program.

An independent assessment panel, under the guidance of the National Council on Problem Gambling, reviewed applications to assess lotteries’ responsible gambling programs in research, employee training, retailer training, player education, new and existing product oversight, budget, advertising, stakeholder engagement and awareness. The Oregon Lottery received an Implementation Certification.

“Responsible gambling programs are as important to our mission as creating revenue for Oregon’s parks, schools, watersheds and jobs,” said Barry Pack, acting Lottery director. “For the last three years the Lottery has worked closely with our commission, and our partners at the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Council on Problem Gambling to create a meaningful and effective responsible gambling program. I’m proud of the work of the Lottery and our staff. This certification, as well as two recent corporate citizenship awards from the National Council for Problem Gambling and La Fleur’s, is recognition of our commitment to embedding responsible gambling practices into every aspect of our business.”

Helping guide and direct the Lottery’s responsible and problem gambling efforts is the agency’s Responsible Gambling Code of Practice, which was adopted in 2014. “The code spells out how the Lottery will approach mitigating the potential harm from gambling,” said Lottery Responsible Gambling Consultant Stacy Shaw. “Some of the initiatives that helped us achieve this certification included our responsible gambling training program for lottery retailers and their employees, and our use of television, radio and internet ad campaigns to inform players about how lottery games really work, and how to access the effective and free support available for people with gambling issues.”

Oregon Lottery proceeds provide funding for free, confidential and effective problem gambling treatment programs statewide. Since 1992, over $92 million in Lottery funds has been directed to fund problem gambling treatment.

    The much hyped replica louis vuitton bag has not made it into many celeb hands as of yet. While the designer gifted some of the bags to a very select few celeb pals and fashion industry friends right after it was released, celebs seem to be getting wait-listed just like everyone else. What's even more interesting is that the lucky celeb who has finally secured a Nina has never before been featured on the site. I'm personally a big fan of hers, but when I think of celeb handbag fanatics, her name certainly does not spring to mind. Nonetheless, the Nina has caught her fancy. But before we get to our mystery celeb guest, here's journalist Alicia Quarles heading into the FFANY Shoes on Sale Gala in NYC. She brought a super cute tri-color celine outlet uk for Micro Luggage Tote to this evening charity benefit. Bella Hadid paired a dainty Dior Lady Dior Bag with the transparent Dior look she wore to the brand's new beauty book launch. Bella is the new face of Dior Beauty, but she seems to be working overtime promoting Dior bags, couture, undies and more. Gillian Anderson was recently spotted leaving her hotel with this highly coveted new design from Gabriela Hearst. As you may already know, there is currently an insane waitlist for this bag, even though it isn't technically sold anywhere. That's one of several reasons we declared it one of the hottest replica mulberry bags in the world right now. By comparison, Jessica Chastain's Burberry Saddle Bag is readily available, should you have the $2,795 plus tax on hand. Jessica recently flaunted this bag while flitting through Heathrow airport. Jessica Simpson is trying out some different looks this fall, and suffice it to say, she certainly has my attention. Here she is heading into Barneys to do some shopping with breitling replica watches which send to her boyfriend.
