Gambling is an activity that comes with risks and it’s important that these risks are minimised. Gambling can become a problem and have a negative impact on you and those around you. There are many ways to keep gaming fun and stay in control.
Don’t think of gambling as a way to make money
Gambling stops becoming fun when you’re chasing losses or expecting to win every time. It should not be a way to solve financial issues or as a form of income. At the end of the day, you’re still making a gamble and gambling is mostly down to luck which cannot be controlled.
Only play with money you can afford
You should only play with money that you have set aside for entertainment, like going out with friends or casino play. You should never play with money that you need for important stuff, like paying rent/mortgage, tuition, food etc. A good way to keep to this is by setting a money limit. If you hit the limit, take a break, recoup and play again when you want to play for fun. Never chase losses.
Balance gaming with other activities
Gambling shouldn’t be your main form of fun, you should balance your gambling with other activities so it doesn’t become a bigger part of your life. Make sure gambling isn’t your only hobby, sometimes it’s nice to take a break and enjoy other things. You should never gamble when you’re under the influence of alcohol. You need a clear mind to make better decisions, alcohol can cloud your thinking.
Do you have a gambling problem?
If you think you may have a problem when it comes to gambling then it’s time to step back and take a break. You can take a self-assessment test and check your behaviour towards gambling.
There is plenty of support available to help you keep playtime fun. Some of OJO’s friends at Gambler’s Anonymous, National Council on Problem Gambling, GamCare, Helping Hand/IGC and Gambling Therapy Helpline are there to help.
