For most people gambling is an exciting and fun recreational pursuit. For others it can become a problem with devastating consequences for them, their families and friends. At PointsBet, we want you to enjoy your gambling experience with us. We want you to stay in control of your gambling and not allow your gambling to control you.
Recognising that you may be developing a gambling problem is the first step to regaining control.
- Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a way of making money
- Avoid chasing losses
- Only gamble what you can afford to lose
- Keep track of time and the amount you spend gambling
Self Assessment and Quizzes
Gamblers Anonymous has prepared a 20 question test to help you identify if you are developing a problem. We recommend that you visit their website for more information.
This self-assessment is known as the Problem Gambling Severity Index (PGSI). The PGSI is a reliable and standardised measure of at risk behaviour in problem gambling. It is a tool based on research on the common signs and consequences of problematic gambling. Take the test now and find out your profile.
