Gambling Guidelines

Here is some free advice if you're going to gamble with real cash in a game involving luck of the draw chance. 

Remember, if you are gambling with money then only play with what you can afford and are prepared to lose. Set a limit and stick to it. Play for fun and you may get lucky but don't simply believe your luck will eventually change and you will win your money back. If you are playing any operator's game then the House, over the long run, is taking a percentage of your money as you play. If you see gambling as an entertainment then you will accept that the House edge is what they charge for the service and that they have operating costs (and a healthy profit) that they must cover. If you do get lucky (people do, that's why they gamble) that's just a bonus, but don't assume and expect that you will, in fact expect to lose.

Having said that the House is taking a percentage of your money in the long run, in the short term your money flow could vary wildly.  You could be way up one moment and way down the next.  But the longer you play the more certain it becomes you'll eventually lose.

For some people gambling is a problem.  Do you feel the need to carry on gambling, if you've lost, to win the money back?  Do you borrow or sell things to fund your gambling habit?  Does it take up work or all your spare time?  If you're not enjoying your gambling and you have money difficulties then you have a gambling problem.

Which kind of gambler are you?

Social gamblers are people who play infrequently and with relatively small amounts of money that they can afford to lose. They see gambling as fun and a chance to let their hair down. They often seem to be enjoying the thrill of the game. These people realistically know they can expect to lose money and except it.

Habitual gamblers are hooked. Gambling can be an addiction like drugs or drink and some people are more pre-disposed to this than others. Unlike occasional gamblers the habitual player will hardly show any emotion to either a win or a loss. The constant tension of waiting for the outcome of their bets and the bottling up of emotion can effect their health. They always live in hope of a big win and even when this happens they are not strong enough to save it and keep away from further gambling. They may or may not be intelligent but always think they are when it comes to gambling. They are often superstitious, carrying lucky charms and with lucky rituals. This is what you must guard against and prevent yourself becoming.

Gambling operators are businesses. They are not gambling, they know that they will win over the long run because of the odds, the edge and the percentage built into the games.
