People love to gamble. Millions of people play the lottery, a game of chance with wide social acceptance. Then there are the casino-goers who prefer betting on roulette and play video machines in a social environment. Other people take it one step further and gamble online in casinos. But no matter where and what you play, playing games of chance can lead to an addiction that is not easy to kick off. That is why we want to provide some resources that help you gamble responsibly and stay in control.
We care at Gamblee, which is why we want to introduce resources that can help with all problems you might have accrued due to gambling.
Gam Care is a national help centre for all things related to problem gambling, tailored explicitly toward players from the United Kingdom.
They offer resources which help you change your relationship with gambling, give access to self-exclusion schemes and advise you on how to handle debts.
You can turn to BeGambleAware if you or anyone you know has any problem with gambling. They offer general advice and guidance to help players make informed decisions when playing games of chance and help prevent and treat gambling-related issues.
Gamblers Anonymous is a community of problem gamblers who help strengthen each other and solve their issues – together. To join the group, you must have the resolve to stop gambling and the urge to fix the problems you have accrued along the way.
If you have accrued debts due to your gambling problem, StepChange is there to advise on how to reduce what you owe, and as they are a charitable organisation, all advice is free.
Contact these organisations if you want to restrict access from gambling halls, online casinos, betting shops, bingo venues and adult gaming centres.
