We ask you to always bet sensibly and within your budget. Gambling is supposed to be fun and should be considered as a form of entertainment like going to the cinema, not as a money-making exercise.

If you are unsure whether or not you may have developed a gambling problem Gamcare.org.uk have a simple test on their website to help you assess if your gambling is causing a problem.

The assessment will give you a series of statements and ask you to select how much the statement applies to your gambling behaviour on a scale of 1 – 10. At the end of the test you will be presented with a breakdown of how gambling is affecting your life and will give you personalised recommendations for your next steps.

Always gamble responsibly and remember, when the fun stops. Stop. Responsible gambling means you are having fun and feel in control of how you play. If your gambling is creating financial stress, anxiety, depression, or affecting your life in a negative way overall, then it may develop into a problem.
