Commitment to Responsible Gaming
New York State promotes responsible gaming practices across all forms of legal gambling, whether it be casino gaming, the lottery, horse racing or bingo.
The New York State Gaming Commission, the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS), and the New York Council on Problem Gambling formed the Responsible Play Partnership to coordinate and raise awareness of problem gambling treatment services.
