Know the Facts

When gambling, the brain releases chemicals like adrenalin and endorphins that excite you, win or lose. When in the moment, this heightened emotional state makes smart decisions difficult. Plan before you play to reduce the risks.

Fact 1

Keep in mind that the excitement and emotions associated with gambling can also cloud your judgment, making informed decisions more difficult.

Fact 2

All gambling activities have risks. Even those involving an element of skill (i.e. poker or blackjack) have outcomes that can’t be predicted.

Fact 3

Most gambling products like slot machines, bingo, roulette, lottery games are completely chance. You cannot predict a win or when a machine will pay out.
