There are a number of things that players can do to ensure they are playing responsibly.
- Take a self-assessment test to gauge whether or not gambling is becoming problematic.
- Enter a self-exclusion program to separate the player from gambling providers and games that are fuelling the problem.
- Set and follow self-imposed limits on wagers and betting totals.
- Join local therapy and counseling groups if gambling begins to get out of hand.
- Focus on gambling as enjoyment, not as a way to make money.
