The main thrust of the NRGP's prevention programme is to educate gamblers and potential gamblers and society as a whole about responsible gambling. Gambling responsibly means gambling for entertainment only and not spending more money or time gambling than one can afford to. The essence of responsible gambling is informed consumer choice. In all our public awareness activities therefore, we seek to alert target audiences to the dangers of gambling too much and how to avoid them. To this end, the programme delivers media publicity, public service advertising, public transport branding and the promotion of general wellness.

The programme also ensures that leaflets and other consumer information material is available to all venues where legal gambling takes place. We also keep government, the gambling industry and service providers abreast of all our activities through regular Newsletters and Quarterly and Annual Reports. Finally, we have an extensive website which contains all our reports, all our research findings and a Digest of South African and world-wide gambling research, all the material for our National Schools Programme, all our advertisements and the NRGP's Handbook of Responsible Gambling.
