Responsible Gambling

Understanding difficulties with gambling On this site you will find practical points about maintaining control of your gambling. There is also a self-assessment questionnaire which can be used to help identify possible difficulties with gambling if you are concerned about your own or somebody else's gambling.

Symptom Assessment:

Did you ever lose time from work due to gambling? Has gambling ever made your home life unhappy? Have you ever spent more money on gambling than you originally intended? Did you ever argue about gambling with family and friends? After losing, did you feel the urge to return as soon as possible to win back your losses?

Did you ever feel guilty about gambling?

Have you ever sold anything to finance your gambling? Did you ever borrow money to finance your gambling? Did you ever consider obtaining money illegally to finance your gambling? Have you ever risked or lost a relationship due to gambling? Tools that you can use We offer a range of different options that can be used to manage gambling activity as and when you wish. This includes tools which allow you to limit the amount you can deposit or lose, or the option to exclude yourself from gambling for a fixed period of time.
