We want all of our customers to enjoy real-money gambling as a planned and
budgeted entertainment option - like an evening out for dinner, the
theater, or a sporting event. But, as with many other things in life, it is
possible to get too much of a good thing. Moderation is the key for all who
- The decision to gamble is a personal choice. No one should feel
pressure to gamble - from others or themselves.
- Gambling should not be perceived as essential to having a good time.
- Limits should be set before starting to gamble. Money spent on gambling
should be considered the cost of entertainment. People should gamble
only with money they can afford to lose. A person who chooses to gamble
should set time and monetary limits and adhere to them.
- There are times when people should not gamble. Certain emotional states
can heighten the risks associated with gambling. Avoid gambling when
feeling lonely, angry, depressed, stressed, or when coping with the
death of a loved one. Similarly, gambling should not be used as a way
to solve personal or family problems, or to impress others. Never
gamble when it interferes with work or family responsibilities, when in
recovery for addictive disorders or dependencies, when the gambling is
illegal, or when trying to make up for prior gambling losses.
- Excessive use of alcohol when gambling can be risky. Irresponsibly
using alcohol can affect a person's judgment and interfere with the
ability to adhere to predetermined limits.
Keep in mind that you always have someone to talk to. You may seek
professional help from the following organizations:
