Making choices

A REMINDER

In Quebec, the legal gambling age is 18.

The principal games of chance and forms of gambling are:
  • Lotteries (lottery tickets, “scratch and win”)
  • Betting on sporting events
  • Card games
  • Races
  • Video-lottery machines (video poker)
  • Bingo
  • Games offered by casinos

CHOICES YOU CAN MAKE

Young people take up gambling and games of chance for various reasons. For example:
  • For the rush and the risk
  • To make money fast, even if it is unrealistic to think that way
  • To escape problems
  • To escape being alone
  • For fun
  • To make friends
  • To act like your friends
  • To fight boredom
