Problem Gambling Group Worried About Powerball Message

Hearts pounding, palms getting sweaty? New York is seeing a fresh round of lottery fever this week as the Wednesday night drawing for the Powerball Jackpot will be a record 425 million dollars. Back in April Mega Millions got to 656 million.

Jim Maney the  Executive Director of the New York Council on Problem Gambling says there too much focus on the glamour and glory of the game and not the fact that just about everyone  loses and many people lose big.
                                                                                                 

Are you or a loved one facing a gambling addiction, the Council has a toll free help hot line that is open 24/7 called the HOPE LINE AT 1-877-8-HOPE NY.
