“The Level 2 Certification by the World Lottery Association shows our commitment to meeting the highest standards in our industry for corporate and social responsibility,” said Noble. “Responsible gaming is an integral part of what we do every day. This commitment helps ensure that we meet our mission to raise money for the state while also safeguarding the interests of those who choose to play the lottery.”

For more than a decade, CCPG has partnered with the CT Lottery and the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services on various responsible gaming initiatives including public service announcements, educational materials and conferences.
