The majority of people do gamble responsibly. It may help you to keep your gambling under control by remembering the following:
- you are buying fun, not investing your money
- before playing, set strict limits on how much time and money you are going to spend
- quit while you’re ahead
- only gamble with money you can afford to lose
- don’t spend more money on gambling with the hope to win back money that you have lost
- keep up other interests and hobbies - don’t let gambling take over your life
- don’t gamble in order to escape from stress or boredom
- gambling in moderation is okay.
For some, however, gambling can become a problem. If you are concerned about the amount you are gambling, and feel it is taking over your life (or you are concerned about a friend or relative) then please visit our Problem gambling page for further guidance and information on this.
