Promoting Responsible Gambling Behaviors to all of Ohio

From lotteries to casinos to racinos, gambling is a sizable part of Ohio’s entertainment landscape. For most people, it provides an opportunity for harmless fun. But, for some, gambling can result in serious consequences. That’s why it’s so important to spread public awareness of responsible gambling practices.

Get Set Before You Bet is an initiative to educate those who do gamble on how to do so safely – as well as where to find help for those who need it. On our website, you can find tips, information and community toolkits designed to help everyone in Ohio avoid the dangers of problem gambling.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Risk Factors for Problem Gambling
  • Warning Signs to Look for
  • Where to Get Help
  • A Community Toolkit to Help Spread the Word
