For many, gambling is an occasional leisure activity. For some, it starts to dominate their daily life. Whether you play slot machines, lotto or online poker games, in order to participate, money is has to be spent – how the game ends, however, is mainly down to luck.
The incentive to always play yet another round, is strong when gambling and may lead to debts and more debts. The situation can quickly turn into a heavy burden, financially, mentally – often in combination with physical symptoms – and socially.
