How does gambling become a problem? You’ve heard the expression “It’s only a game”. When you start spending more time and money gambling than you should, a game stops being just a game. It starts to become a problem.
Gambling can be identified under different forms such as: bingo, cards for money, lotteries (lotto 6/49, Atlantic Choice, etc), scratch and win or pull-tab tickets, video lottery terminals (VLTs), slot machines and other games at the casino, sports betting, race track betting and high-risk stocks.
