Controlling Play and Getting Help
Spending too much time or money gambling can cause problems and negatively affect health and wellbeing.
One way to stay in control of your gambling is to take advantage of the tools we offer that are designed to help you stick to your budget (time and/or money).
But sometimes it’s better to take a break from gambling – or even to stop gambling completely. If you’ve decided to take a break, you may find self-exclusion helpful.
If you or someone you know is experiencing negative effects from gambling – you are not alone.
Help is available – There is a range of specialist services available to provide help and support gamblers experiencing problems, and for family members and others affected by another’s gambling.
