For many people, wagering is exciting and entertaining. They make thoughtful decisions about spending time and money. We have a moral, social and business responsibility to promote responsible wagering among our patrons. Please note the following:-
- Balance wagering with other leisure activities.
- Wager for entertainment, not as a way to make money.
- Do not "chase" losses. Accept them as the cost of entertainment.
- Use extra income to wager, not money needed for everyday expenses.
- Set a time limit.
Responsible wagering is what most people practice on a daily basis. For some, however, wagering or gambling becomes a serious problem that they are unable to control. This can lead to a state of compulsive or pathological gambling. Pathological gamblers are unable to resist the temptation to gamble; they cannot stop regardless of their jobs, families or anything else.
Gambling becomes a problem when a person:
- Loses time from work, school or family life in order to gamble
- Gambles until all the money is gone
- Gambles to win back money lost through gambling
- Lies to hide gambling activity
- Boasts about winnings but is vague about losses
- Fails time after time to reduce or stop gambling
If you believe you may have a problem with wagering, we encourage you to seek help with the confidential organisations available
