The ResponsibleGaming Foundation describes Problem Gambling as follows:
Problem gambling is an urge to continuously gamble despite harmful negative consequences or a desire to stop. Problem gambling is often explained by whether harm is experienced by the gambler or others, rather than by the gambler’s behaviour. Severe problem gambling may be diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling if the gambler meets certain criteria.Pathological gambling is a common disorder that is associated with both social and family costs.
Gambling should be treated as an entertainment, not as a source of income. While the majority of players treat gambling as a kind of leisure activities and risk only some definite amount of money, for others this may become a real challenge.
Gambling should be moderate, and it should be treated as a form of leisure, not a way of earning money. We recommend that you:
