The Vermont Council on Problem Gambling
We are the home of the Vermont Council on Problem Gambling. Since 1987, the Vermont Council on Problem Gambling has worked to raise awareness of gambling addiction and predatory gambling in Vermont and we have offered a variety of resources and trainings to help. Today, we are focused on two main projects:
- Our annual report on the state of problem gambling in Vermont.
- Stopping the spread of video gambling machines by the Vermont State Lottery. The Lottery is currently piloting a project where they have placed video gambling machines in 25 bars throughout Vermont — most in low-income neighborhoods. They are seeking approval to now place any number of video gambling machines in any number of locations: from state fairs to town clerk’s offices to liquor stores. This would be ruinous for our state.
Please check back soon for upcoming trainings.
