Every person is different when it comes to gambling. Some people only have an annual bet on Melbourne Cup, others bet several times a week.
Consider your gambling behaviours and keep the following tips in mind:
Set a limit on your funds
Only gamble what you can afford. If you know you’re going to gamble, it’s a good idea to leave your ATM and credit cards at home and only take with you the amount of cash you can afford to spend.
Have a game plan
Set your gambling limit before you start and walk away once you hit your betting ceiling. Don’t chase your losses.
Don’t get caught up in the moment
It can be hard to stop gambling when your friends are betting big around you. Don’t get caught up in the moment, stand firm and don’t succumb to peer pressure to keep on betting.
