What Is Japan Lottery’s Policy on Responsible Gaming?

The Lottery encourages a responsible attitude towards gaming. Responsible gaming means staying in control of the amount of time spent on gaming and on the amount of money spent and treating the activity as a form of entertainment as part of a wider, balanced lifestyle. Like many other forms of entertainment, gaming has a monetary element to it and theLotter advises its customers not to spend more money than they can wisely afford. Furthermore, We recommend that all customers establish limits for participating in lottery draws, and recommend that they do not turn to lotteries as a source of income or as a way to recoup debt.

TIPS FOR BETTING RESPONSIBLY

Moderation is the key to responsible gaming. Some responsible gaming tips:

Underage Gambling

Our game rules do not allow any person under the age of 18 to place a bet or claim a winning ticket prize at our outlets. We may ask for proof of age and ask the under-aged to leave our premises should they engage in any betting activities. If our customers have young children with them, we advise them to supervise the children at all times.

Although we dedicate a lot of time and resources to ensure there are no minors playing, we feel this prevention works best as a shared responsibility between us and the minor’s parents/guardians.

COMMON LOTTERY MYTHS

Don’t let myths and misunderstandings about lottery games affect the way you play. Learn the facts about some common myths:

MYTH: I’m more likely to win if I play the same numbers each time.

FACT: Lottery drawings are completely random events and previous results have no bearing on future drawing outcomes. This means that for every lottery drawing, each number has an equal chance of being drawn and every set of numbers has the same chance of winning.

MYTH: Knowing what numbers have been drawn before will help me form a winning combination.

FACT: While winning-number frequency charts are interesting, each number has an equal chance of being drawn, regardless of how many times a number has been drawn in the past. Lottery drawings are completely random and there is no way to predict a winning number beyond its overall probability of being drawn.

MYTH: Playing every day will increase my chances of winning.

FACT: The chances of winning on any day are exactly the same as the day before. Winning numbers are randomly drawn, so playing every day makes no difference.

MYTH: If I keep gambling, my luck will change and I’ll win back the money I’ve lost.

FACT: Continuing to gamble with the hopes of winning back lost money is referred to as “chasing” and does not increase your chances of winning. Each time you place a bet, the odds are no more in your favor than they were the last time.

Measures to be taken

Even if some of the statements above match the way you play, it does not necessarily mean that you have a gambling problem. We would like to warn you, however, that you seem to play in an unhealthy way and might be in danger of losing control. Through being absolutely honest with yourself and breaking your habits as well as researching about gambling addiction, you can avoid encountering problems in the future. You are always welcome to contact our Customer Service staff for any information or support related to problem gambling.
