In February 2022, the LGCA launched its Know My Gambling Limits campaign to promote lower-risk gambling guidelines. The new public education messaging encourages adult Manitobans to think about their gambling before they play and to set limits for their gambling.
The lower-risk gambling guidelines were developed by the Canadian Centre for Substance Use and Addiction after a multi-year research project and the LGCA has incorporated these guidelines within our Know My Gambling Limits public education.
The lower-risk gambling guidelines are:
Gamble no more than 1% of household income before tax per month.
Gamble no more than 4 days per month.
Avoid regularly gambling at more than 2 types of games.
The campaign links the lower-risk gambling guidelines with familiar gambling activities to show how the guidelines can be followed and how to make informed choices when gambling.
