In a joint initiative, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission and the state lottery are going to launch the Holiday Responsible Gambling Campaign. The campaign is intended to create awareness about the dangers of buying lottery tickets for children and the pitfalls of encouraging any form of underage gambling.

There is a widespread practice among adults to gift under-aged persons a variety of shadow-gambling gifts such as scratch tickets, lottery tickets, believe it or not, or even casino tokens.

“Let’s try to refocus our consumers into giving toys that are age appropriate. As I mentioned during our presentation this is the type of really cute gift you want to be giving to someone who’s a child, you don’t want to be giving them a five or ten dollar scratch ticket or something related to a casino operation,” said Massachusetts State Lottery Director Michael Sweeney.

A toy drive will be part of the campaign to help provide appropriate gifts for kids across Massachusetts.

New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has approved PointsBet, an Australian company that offers an innovative form of sports betting.

The Australian company will function in association with the Meadowlands Racetrack on a “soft play” basis.

PointsBet follows a different system of payouts calculation. Basically, payouts vary, not a constant amount. For example, if you bet $10 and correctly predict the over in an NBA game, you will receive $10 for every point over the total. Conversely, you will lose $10 for every point under the total in a losing bet.

“The more your bet wins by, the more you win,” the company’s website – which has already been updated to include Tuesday’s news – reads.

“PointsBet is New Jersey’s first specialist PointsBetting provider,” the website says, with a picture of local New York Jets legend Darrelle Revis pictured as brand’s ambassador.
