Welcome to Responsible Gambling!
Responsible Gambling is a core value of the Connecticut Lottery Corporation (CLC). The mission of the CLC is to "raise revenue in an entrepreneurial manner for the State of Connecticut, consistent with the highest standards of good public and social responsibility, by offering products to our players that are fun and entertaining, and by ensuring the public's trust through integrity and honesty."
In order to help achieve this, the CLC participates in the World Lottery Association's responsible gaming accreditation program. In 2012, the CLC achieved Level 2 Accreditation – one of only six U.S. lotteries to achieve this distinction, and it is now working towards Level 3 Accreditation. As part of the Level 3 Accreditation process, the CLC will continue to build and improve upon its own various responsible gambling efforts which include employee training, retailer training, advertising and communication efforts, player education, stakeholder engagement, and reporting and measuring our progress.
