Responsible Gaming

Be Smart Bet Smart

besmartFor many people betting on the horses is exciting and entertaining. They make thoughtful decisions about spending time and money. Here’s how to wager responsibly:
  • Balance playing the horses with other leisure activities.
  • Play the horses for entertainment. Not as a way to make money.
  • Do not “chase” losses. Accept them as the cost of entertainment.
  • Use extra income, not money needed for everyday expenses.
  • Set a time limit.

Responsible betting is probably what most people do on a daily basis. However, for some people, wagering or gambling becomes a serious problem, which they are unable to control. This lack of control leads to a state of compulsive or pathological gambling. Pathological gamblers cannot resist the temptation to gamble; they cannot stop regardless of their jobs, families or anything else.

How can you tell if you or someone you know has a gambling problem? 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, vague about losing
  • Fails time after time to reduce or stop gambling
