The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) sponsors Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM), which puts a national spotlight on the issue of compulsive gambling. PGAM is jointly sponsored in Minnesota by the Minnesota Lottery, the Minnesota Indian Gaming Association, and the Minnesota Alliance on Problem Gambling.
March was selected as awareness month because it falls during one of the most popular sporting events in the United States, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) basketball tournament known as "March Madness." The campaign's objective is to increase public awareness of the indicators of problem gambling and the resources that are available.
