NJ touts problem gambling help ahead of Super Bowl

HAMILTON, N.J. (AP) — With the Super Bowl less than a week away, New Jersey is taking its programs to help compulsive gamblers on the road.

The state Council on Compulsive Gambling is launching a mobile billboard Tuesday that will drive around the area of Met Life Stadium and other heavily populated areas of the state.

It will publicize the 1-800-GAMBLER help line and other programs to assist problem gamblers. The Council wants to reach as many of the estimated 35,000 New Jerseyans who have gambling problems as possible.

The effort will run until the day after the Super Bowl, which will put the Seattle Seahawks against the Denver Broncos on Sunday in East Rutherford.
