Understanding of Problem Gambling
A visit to any gambling website is seen as time for relaxation, enjoyment and socialization. Visitors come to gambling websites knowing how much money they can afford to spend, and only spend the predetermined amount.
This is the case for the majority of visitors to gambling websites around the world. However, there is a small portion of people who lose sight of the entertainment value of gaming which could lead to varying levels of addiction to one or more forms of gambling.
Problem gambling is a serious issue and we therefore believe that it is our social responsibility to attempt to identify problem gamblers under a problem gambling program and provide them with the assistance and support to rehabilitate from the various levels of addiction.
