FanDuel has recently announced that it will be offering online sports wagering in Kansas, thanks to an agreement with Kansas Star Casino, LLC. This means that people in Kansas will now have the opportunity to place their bets on sports through the FanDuel platform.
However, it’s important to remember that gambling can become a problem for some individuals. That’s why FanDuel has included a message in their announcement, urging individuals who may be struggling with gambling to seek help. The message provides a hotline number, 1-800-GAMBLER, and a website, GamblingHelpLineMA.org, that individuals can reach out to for support.
In addition to the general support offered, FanDuel also provides specific resources for individuals in different states. For example, in New York, individuals can call 1-877-8HOPE-NY or text HOPENY (467369) for support. And in Connecticut, individuals can call 1-888-789-7777 or visit ccpg.org/chat for help.
This commitment to responsible gambling and support for individuals who may struggle with gambling issues is an important aspect of the gambling industry. By providing access to support resources, companies like FanDuel are taking a proactive approach to addressing the potential harms associated with gambling.
This announcement serves as a reminder that when it comes to gambling, it’s important to do so responsibly and within one’s means. And for those who may find themselves in need of support, help is available 24/7 through the resources provided. It’s a step towards ensuring that individuals can enjoy the excitement of sports wagering while also having access to the help they may need.
