Here are the 10 rules for the responsible player:
Gambling is a way for me to have fun, not to make money.
Before gambling I decide how much money I want to spend. I don't play with money I need for my everyday life and only use amounts I can afford to lose.
I don't borrow money to gamble. If I lose I accept the loss as the cost of having fun. I don't add more money to recover my losses.
Tactics are pointless, I can't predict the results and I'm aware that the probability of winning is low.
I don’t lie about how much I spend and lose when I gamble.
I decide how much of my day to devote to gambling and I don’t have any trouble stopping or taking breaks.
Gambling isn’t my only leisure activity and it doesn’t encroach on the time I devote to my family, friends, sport and hobbies.
I don’t gamble after drinking or taking drugs.
I don’t gamble when I feel lonely. I don’t gamble when I feel depressed and I don’t feel depressed if I don’t gamble.
I don’t think about gambling repeatedly throughout the day, even if I’m not playing.
