During responsible gambling month, September, Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) urged for raising awareness about responsible betting among students.

MGCB joined forces with AGA to raise awareness of responsible gambling. The MGCb will use social media channels to promote the topic. According to the National Council on Problem Gambling, 60% to 80% of high school students admitted to gambling for money in the last year and 4%-6% are addicted to it. According, EarthWeb, approximately 6% college students are impacted by problem gambling and it's Responsible Gambling Month.

As fall sports begin, it's a great time to remind everyone to have fun responsibly when wagering on sporting events.

The current legal age for participation in gambling activities in Michigan is 21. Adults, age 21 or older can legally wager via sports betting websites, online gambling casinos or by visiting a brick-and-mortar venue. It is the responsibility of the licensed operators to adhere to know-your-customer (KYC) rules and regulations.

Young people may turn to illegal gambling options not authorized under Michigan law.
