CT Lottery Wins Responsible Gambling Communications Award for Retailer Training
The CT Lottery received an award for best Responsible Gambling Communications in the Electronic Category for Retailer Training at the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) Annual Conference and Trade Show in Atlantic City. The award, which was presented on October 9, was accepted by Anne M. Noble, CT Lottery President and CEO, and Chelsea Turner, CT Lottery Director of Government, Regulatory and Operational Affairs.
The electronic Retailer Training activity was produced by the CT Lottery and distributed to more than 2800 retailers via Survey Monkey
. Designed to be short, informative, and interactive, this training activity was the first of its kind and offered retailers a way to easily share a responsible gambling message directly with their employees. The digital platform facilitated fast and meaningful messaging on an important topic.
“I am very proud that the CT Lottery continues to be recognized throughout the lottery industry for our leadership on responsible gambling,” Noble said. "The award exemplifies our commitment to meeting the highest standards in our industry for retailer training," said Noble. Additional Responsible Gambling Awards
