Responsible Gaming

Play Responsibly

The Georgia Lottery Corporation offers lottery games for entertainment and encourages players to enjoy them responsibly. It's only a game...so remember to Play Responsibly. Here are some things to keep in mind when playing lottery games:

  • Money needed for daily expenses should not be used for playing the Lottery.
  • Never gamble with borrowed money.
  • Set a limit. Don't chase your losses and risk getting deeper into a hole.
  • Winning and losing are both part of playing the Lottery and other gaming activities. If you're only prepared to win, you're not prepared to play the Lottery. Only spend what you can afford to lose when playing.
  • Playing the Lottery is a recreational activity and not an alternative to work.

We want you to enjoy playing Georgia Lottery games and have fun. You can achieve this goal by setting limits for yourself in your gaming activities.
