Responsible Gambling

While the majority of people do gamble within their limits, for some, gambling can become a problem.

It may help you to remember the following:
  • Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a way of making money
  • Avoid chasing losses
  • Only gamble what you can afford to lose
  • Keep track of the time and amount you spend gambling
