RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING

RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING


Gambling is a form of leisure that can provide not only positive emotions, so the most crucial part of gambling is responsible gaming. Before placing any bets, it is essential to assess whether the wager is made with disposable, leisure-specific funds.

Gambling irresponsibly can become a significant and challenging problem, leading to addiction. Individuals may lose all their financial resources, assets, accumulate debts, and negatively impact both their lives and the lives of those around them.

MINORS AND GAMBLING

GAMBLING ADDICTION TEST


It is recommended for every gambler to take a gambling addiction test. Even if a gambler believes the situation is under control, addiction can unexpectedly take hold. The test assesses the level of gambling addiction, provides advice on self-help, and suggests ways to seek professional assistance.

RISK OF PROBLEM GAMBLING


If gambling consumes a significant portion of your time, a larger portion of your budget is allocated to it than necessary for basic needs, and you continue to gamble despite potential consequences, you may be a problem gambler.

Dependency on gambling is also known as compulsive gambling or ludomania. In these cases, individuals cannot control the impulse to gamble, even when they realize it causes suffering for themselves or their loved ones. The consequences of problem gambling can affect professional activities, family situations, and mental health.

Irresponsible gambling can lead to anxiety, despair, apathy, anger, financial problems, debts, strained relationships, unsuccessful attempts to stop compulsive gambling, and negative emotions that may lead to depression or psychosomatic disorders such as chest pain, increased pressure, and respiratory and digestive issues.

ENSURING GAMBLING REMAINS JUST ENTERTAINMENT


When starting to play casino games or placing bets on sports, it is crucial to maintain moderation and not succumb to overwhelming emotions, as impulsive decisions can be made. In both winning and losing situations, a player must remain calm to avoid losing all available funds. It is not recommended to view gambling as an opportunity to earn extra money.

For those engaging in gambling, it is recommended to set:

  • A limit on the amount of money a player can afford to lose over a specific period, e.g., a month, week, or day. The money allocated for gambling should not constitute a significant part of expenses and should not impact daily life.
  • A time limit for spending on gambling websites. Setting a time limit protects the player from continuous gambling, which can lead to addiction.

LIMITS ON THE PLAYER'S ACCOUNT


One of the best ways to reduce the risk of problem gambling is to set limits on the player's account. These limits prevent players from exceeding established boundaries, and reaching the limit prohibits further gambling.

Player limits may:

  1. Restrict the maximum amount of money a player can bet over a specific period or during one uninterrupted gambling session.
  2. Limit the maximum amount for a single bet.
  3. Set a time limit for a single gambling session, during which the player must stop participating in online gambling.
