Problem bet council: Don’t give lotto tix to kids



New Jersey’s Council on Compulsive Gambling and the state lottery are advising people that they shouldn’t give lottery tickets as holiday gifts to children.  In a joint statement, the two groups say gambling at an early age can increase the risk of becoming a compulsive gambler.  New Jersey law requires lottery purchasers to be 18 or over, but does not specifically prohibit giving lottery tickets to kids. A recent Yale University study found that youngsters who received instant tickets as a gift tended to begin gambling earlier in life.
