The bottom line is that gambling establishments like land-based casinos and online
gambling sites are set up to take in more money than they pay out. This means that over
time, you will lose more money than you win.
And, remember it's not just casinos. All forms of gambling have the same principle – the vast majority of people lose so that a very small minority can have big wins. Virtually all people with gambling problems hold the false expectation that they are the ones who will be the big winners.
That belief feeds the problem.
Gamble with money that you set aside for fun, like going to the movies or going out for drinks. Never use money that you need for important things like rent, bills, tuition, etc.
If you lose money, never try to get it back by going over your limit. This usually leads to even bigger losses.
Decide how much money you can afford to lose before you play. When you have lost that amount of money, quit. If you win – enjoy, but remember it won’t happen most of the time.
Decide how much time you can afford to spend gambling. When you reach that time limit, stop gambling.
It is hard to make good decisions about gambling when you are feeling down.
It’s important to enjoy other activities so that gambling doesn’t become too big a part of your life.
Gambling under the influence is common, but it generally leads people to make bad decisions that they regret later.
