About Problem Gambling
Here at iPunt, we know that gambling should always be fun, adding to the pleasure of a night at a city centre casino or spending a few minutes trying the pokies locally. So many Australians will have the occasional flutter – such as on Melbourne Cup Day – or bet online to add to the fun of watching upcoming footy, soccer, rugby or many other sporting clashes on TV. Our own and overseas lotteries are also hugely popular.
Sadly, there is a time for some people when the fun stops. It’s estimated that up to half-a-million of our total population might either already have a problem with their gambling or there is a possibility that this could happen to them in the future.
If you recognise that such a situation exists for you, it’s possible to act now by completing a self-exclusion application. Putting this into action will mean that betting companies are prevented from accepting your custom. You decide the timescale for this to be in place; when it expires you can even apply for another self-exclusion notice.
Another source of help for many can be found at Gambling Help Online. People who make contact soon find they are not alone in this worrying situation when they learn of the experiences of others.
If gambling has become a bigger part of your life than it should, or you have concerns that this could happen, please take action now and seek gambling counselling.
