The majority of our customers enjoy gambling and do so in a safe and responsible manner. However, for a small number of people, gambling can be damaging and may impact their lives. If you think that you might have a problem, we have prepared a few self-assessment questions below that may help you to decide:
Do you gamble as an escape from your day-to-day life?
When you run out of money while gambling, do you feel despair and the need to gamble more as quickly as possible?
Do you consistently gamble until every last penny has gone, even to the point of losing the price of a cup of tea or a ride home?
Do you or have you ever lied to your friends or family about how much money or time you have spent on gambling?
Have you lost interest in your friends and family because of your gambling?
Have you borrowed or stolen money, or sold anything to support your gambling?
Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your gambling?
The more questions that you answer ‘yes’ to, the more likely it is that you have a gambling problem. We recommend that you speak to someone about your answers if you have answered ‘yes’ to the above. Contact our Customer Support Team or a problem gambling support service.
Furthermore, we recommend that you consider a Time-Out or Self-Exclusion.
