Where do we Gamble

There are many different types of gambling and gambling facilities:

  • Casinos
  • Charity Casinos
  • Race Tracks
  • Bingo Halls
  • Lottery and/or Tickets Outlets
  • Hospital Lotteries
  • Convenience Gambling
  • First Nations Gambling [casinos on reservations or territories, radio bingo]
  • Church and other fundraising games
  • Off-Track betting
  • Unsanctioned games such as cock fighting or dog races
  • Pari-mutuel Wagering [harness racing]
  • Simulcasting and Account Wagering [betting on boxing matches, horse races and other events occurring somewhere else]
  • Sports Wagering
  • Internet / On-line

Sometimes gambling takes the form of charitable fundraising. 50-50 draws, school raffles, service club draws, stag and doe parties, penny sales, hospital lotteries and other games might seem like a great way to raise money for a good cause. However, these types of games are just as addictive as other forms of gambling and can lead to the same problems for the gambler.
