Betting is an exciting way of taking a risk as long as the risk is kept under control. The great majority of people who bet enjoy the experience without any problems, but a very small number lose control of what they are doing. For these players, gambling ceases to be fun and can come to dominate their life.

Responsible Gambling is where:

  • Your gambling provides you with fun and entertainment
  • You know how much money you have to spend and bet within your means
  • Gambling is only one of your interests, you have time for other interests, family and friends
  • You don´t gamble to solve your financial problems, or as an escape from your personal problems
  • The key is to bet responsibly not recklessly

Problem Gambling:
If you think you might have a gambling problem then consider the following:

  • Do you lose time from work due to gambling?
  • Do you ever gamble to get money with which to pay debts or to solve financial difficulties?
  • After losing, are your reasons for continuing to bet to win back your losses?
  • Do you ever borrow to finance your gambling?
  • Are you reluctant to use "gambling money" for normal expenditure?
  • Does gambling make you careless about the welfare of your family?
  • Do you ever gamble for longer than you planned?
  • Do you ever gamble to escape worry or trouble?

If you generally answer "yes" to these questions and want to talk to someone about problem gambling, GamCare can give you practical help and advice.
