Lakewood - March 26, 2024 - The Colorado Department of Revenue, Division of Gaming is proud to announce it is cosponsoring the first Problem Gambling Awareness Day at the State Capitol on March 27.


Media are invited to attend the event at the Colorado State Capitol, beginning at 8 a.m. in the First Floor Rotunda.

During March, the Division of Gaming promotes Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM)  and aims to shed light on the prevalence of gambling addiction and its impact on people, families and communities while promoting safe betting practices.

"Through education, outreach, and support, we can empower individuals to make informed decisions about their gambling behaviors and seek help when needed."
