Tips for Low Risk Gambling

Gamble Safe!

Don’t allow gambling to take over your life! If you’re going to gamble, consider the following smart gambling strategies:

Only gamble with money set aside for entertainment, never with money for everyday expenses. 

Set a time limit for gambling

Set financial limits.  Decide on a loss limit ahead of time and stick to it

Do not borrow to gamble

Do not buy a chance

Do not take credit cards to a gambling venue

Do not gamble alone – go with someone who will help you draw the line

Be aware that risk increases at times of loss and/or depression

Take frequent brakes

Sign a voluntary exclusion agreement at a casino or track – this is a document that authorizes the facility not to let you in
