Problem Gambling Resources
Xpressbet and 1/ST Technology emphasize awareness, education and support of responsible wagering behavior for our customers and employees. We are committed to helping prevent problems that can arise from gambling.
“Most people who gamble do so with no harmful effects. They set limits and stick to them. However, for a small percentage of the population, gambling can become more than a game, and lead to serious consequences for both the gambler and their family.”1
Symptoms of problem gambling “include increasing preoccupation with gambling, a need to bet more money more frequently, restlessness or irritability when attempting to stop, ‘chasing’ losses, and loss of control manifested by continuation of the gambling behavior in spite of mounting, serious, negative consequences. In extreme cases, problem gambling can result in financial ruin, legal problems, loss of career and family, or even suicide.”2
Below are some indicators / warning signs that you may have a gambling problem:3
- Do you gamble to escape worry or trouble?
- Do you gamble to get money to solve financial difficulties?
- Are you unable to stop playing regardless of winning or losing?
- Do you gamble until your last dollar is gone?
- Are you losing time from work due to gambling?
- Are you borrowing money to pay gambling debts?
- Do you neglect your family because of gambling?
- Do you lie about the time and/or money you spend gambling?
If you or someone you know answered “yes” to any of the above questions or are otherwise concerned that you may have a gambling problem, we encourage you to take the ten-question self-assessment provided by the National Council on Problem Gambling at https://www.ncpgambling.org/help-treatment/screening-tools/ or call the National Council for Problem Gambling at 1.800.522.4700.
