Responsible Gambling

As with many adult activities gambling can be a hugely enjoyable pastime, but as such it also carries inherent risks of addiction and financial hardship. The information, content and advertisements on this site are intended for entertainment purposes only. If you, or anyone you know, feels that they have an issue with compulsive gambling you should seek professional help as soon as possible.

Gambling should always be fun and as such following these simple guidelines may help:

  • Gambling should always be perceived as entertainment and not as a means to make money
  • Only gamble with money that you can comfortably afford to lose
  • Keep your sessions short
  • Understand that gambling is a negative expectation activity – the longer you play the less likely you are to end up ahead.
  • If you have lost and you are no longer enjoying the experience (i.e. playing solely to win back lost funds) STOP.

If you are concerned about your gambling habits you should contact GamCare who specialise in Gambling addiction. If you are unsure as to whether your gaming is representative of a problem, complete this survey.
