Nine. Eight…

You got it. Ten rules. Ten simple points to keep you aware of why you started gambling, how to spot the danger signs, and how to keep it enjoyable.

  • Gambling should be fun! Only ever play with money that you are willing to lose.
  • Never consider gambling to be a source of income. It’s a game and nothing more.
  • All gambling is a game of chance. There is no guarantee that you will win.
  • Never chase your losses. Chasing losses usually leads to bigger and bigger losses.
  • Avoid gambling when you’re depressed, upset, or emotional.
  • If you feel that you’re spending more than you can afford, set self-restricting limits.
  • Balance gambling with other activities. When gambling becomes your only form of entertainment, it is unlikely that you are still just gambling for fun.
  • Take frequent breaks. Gambling continuously can cause you to lose track of time and perspective.
  • Never drink or use drugs when gambling. Drugs and alcohol cloud judgment and good judgment stands as your main line of defense against letting gambling get out of control.
  • If you feel concerned about your gambling, take a break from it. Block your account by requesting a self-exclusion.
