Should you be concerned about your gambling?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you spend all of your free time gambling, or thinking about gambling?
- Do you spend all of your available money when you gamble?
- Do you prioritise gambling over your other responsibilities and activities?
- Has your gambling negatively impacted a personal relationship, your education or a job?
- Does gambling give you stress, anxiety, depression or suicidal feelings instead of enjoyment?
- Do you bet more after a loss as a way of winning it all back? (Chasing losses)
- Have you had to increase the money you spend to maintain the level of excitement you gain from gambling?
- Have you ever tried to hide how much money and/or time you spend gambling from the people in your life?
- Do you ever gamble to relieve stress in your life?
- Have you needed to borrow money or commit a crime to make up for a gambling loss?
If your answer to any of these is yes - you may have a problem and should contact our support team via email at: email@example.com or reach out to these gambling support organisations. You should also consider self-exclusion.

Problem gambling does not just affect the gambler, but can harm the people who care for them and the community around them. Thatʼs why itʼs important to seek help as soon as possible.
If youʼre confident you do not have a gambling problem and would like to better manage your gambling you can restrict your account with stake/deposit limits or give your account a temporary time out. See this section for more details.
