RESPONSIBLE GAME


Responsible Gambling

In case you suspect you might have a gambling issue, we advise you to read carefully the text below.

Knowing how to gamble creates an unstoppable desire to continuously gamble. Being addicted to gambling posits a lot of serious problems to an individual.

Causes of Problem Gambling

A lot of studies have already been conducted but it is still very hard to find the reasons why many people are addicted to gambling. The personal characteristics of the player play a crucial role why he or she loves to gamble. Even the financial status of the individual can be the reason behind the act of gambling.

Many say that money is just the reason why people love gambling. However, this assumption is not always true. The desperation to win a lump sum of money is not just the reason why many are compulsive gamblers. But it is true that most but not all gamblers are motivated by their financial problems. The gamblers think that it is just rational to gamble because there is more money in gambling. Unfortunately, gambling can also make the lives of gamblers worse.

Another reason why people gamble is just because they want to escape their depressing situations. Having fun through gambling seems like a defensive mechanism to these people. Their emotions become stable through the excitement that they get from gambling.

If you know someone who gambles, you must know the signs that can indicate whether a person already has a gambling problem. Below are the list of the common signs that a person has a gambling problem.
  1. He/she spends a lot of money and time gambling.
  2. He/she doesn't want to stop gambling.
  3. He/she will definitely demand for more money.
  4. He/she will surely lie about his gambling activities.
  5. He/she will surely get new credit cards, loans and unpaid bills.
  6. Many debt collectors will surely chase him because of his/her many unpaid loans.


If you ever see these signs on your neighbor, friend, schoolmate and family members, then it is highly recommended that you immediately do certain measures to alleviate their gambling problem. Their gambling problem will not only cause financial burden but also physical and emotional stress. In order for him to solve the gambling problem, remember to remain on his side. You must support him and tell him that he needs to build up himself and gain strength to solve the gambling issue. And if possible, seek professional help so that you will be more guided on how to solve the gambling problem.

On the other hand, if you are the one gambling then you must assess yourself and determine if you also have a gambling problem. Below is the list of the signs that you should watch for in order to determine if you have a gambling problem.
  1. You always want to gamble and you think of gambling frequently.
  2. You are angry and stressed if you cannot gamble.
  3. You forget about your problems when you gamble.
  4. You spend almost all your money in gambling.
