Whilst gambling is intended to be fun, for some it can cause real issues. Some people do see gambling as a way to make money and unfortunately can end up losing more than they win.
Some people do also use gambling as a form of escape, in a similar way to using drink or drugs, to distract themselves from troubling situations.
The above should never be done and here are a few tips to make sure you are considering your own safety whilst gambling.
All of the major bookmakers provide easy to use features to help control your gambling and these should be used where needed :-
- Deposit Limits ensure you do not gamble more than you can afford to lose
- Time Limits mean that you do not loose track of time whilst gambling
- Withdrawal Periods allow you to take time off and stop gambling completely
The best advice would be to never chase your losses!
We cannot stress this enough.
Gambling should only be considered and undertaken by persons aged 18 years or over.
