Information and support for those who could need help with an addiction to gambling.
Gambling is supposed to be fun and affordable. When it stops being enjoyable and starts to become a problem then it's time to get some help.
If your gambling at online casinos is getting out of hand then you should contact the casino(s) you have been playing at and request that they suspend or close your account. Reputable online casinos will be happy to help you.
If you believe that your gambling is no longer within your control, or that you are risking more money than you can comfortably afford to lose, then we recommend you get in touch with someone who can help. The following resources can help if you or someone you know is gambling too much.
