Responsible Gambling

Betting and gambling should be a fun and enjoyable experience, however Puntfair understands that for a small minority of people it can be a problem.

Puntfair seek to promote responsible gambling.

We want you to enjoy betting and gambling , and to help you to do this, Puntfair offers the following guidelines:

  • Try to set yourself a limit for betting and losses before you start to gamble.

  • We advise that you do not gamble if this may interfere with you daily responsibilities.

  • Gambling is not advised if you are recovering from any dependency or are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

  • Don’t gamble to win or to recoup losses from previous gambling, you should always be able to lose what you wager.

  • If you feel that you or someone you know has a gambling problem further advice is available from BeGambleAware.

Puntfair support the work of BeGambleAware and the care, help and educational resources that they provide for problem gamblers.

If you feel that your gambling is becoming or has become a problem you should ask the following questions:

  • Do you miss work, university or change your daily routine to enable you to gamble?

  • Do you gamble because you feel bored or unhappy with your life or current situation?

  • If you run out of money when you are gambling do you feel despair and want to gamble again as soon as possible?

  • When you gamble do you continue until all your money has gone, even money you needed to get your home or eat?

  • Have you ever lied about the amount of money you have spent when gambling, or the numbers of hours you have spent in gambling establishments?

  • Have other people ever commented on your gambling?

  • Have you ever lied, stolen or borrowed money to gamble with or to cover debts you have established whilst gambling?

  • Do you set money aside for gambling and are you unwilling to spend it on anything else?

  • Has your interest in gambling caused you to lose interest in family friends and hobbies?

  • If you gamble and lose do you feel that you must gamble again to win back the money that you have just lost?

  • Do arguments, problems and disappointments in life make you feel that you want to gamble?

  • Do you feel depressed or suicidal because of your gambling?

The more times you answer yes to these questions the higher the chance is that you have a serious gambling problem.
