Missouri's Responsible Gaming Education Month



By following a few low-risk gambling tips, players can enjoy playing the Missouri Lottery responsibly, while ensuring that gambling remains a game.

  • Set a budget and stick to it.
  • Never borrow money to gamble.
  • Decide on a loss limit prior to gambling.
  • Don't gamble when highly stressed, depressed or troubled in any way.

Anyone who thinks that they, or someone they know, has a gambling problem are encouraged to call 1-888-BETSOFF (1-888-238-7633) to access free help from licensed professionals.

Players Can Self Exclude

Missouri Lottery players who identify as problem or pathological gamblers can also sign up for the Lottery's Self-Exclusion Program (SEP). Introduced in 2013, the SEP is a resource aimed at reducing the incentive to play Lottery games. More information about the SEP and the Lottery's responsible gaming program can be found at MOLottery.com.
