Internet Gambling Addiction Test

Internet Gambling can become a serious problem and, in many cases, can be worse than traditional gambling.

Whether you bet on sports, roulette, scratch cards, poker or in a casino or online—problem gambling can strain , interfere with work, strain family and intimate relationships and lead to financial troubles. Gamblers have found themselves committing crimes like stealing money to gamble or pay off debts. You may think you can’t stop but, with the right help, you can overcome a gambling problem  and regain control of your life. The first step in doing so is to recognize and admit to the problem.

  • Have you lied to friends and family members to conceal extent of your online gambling?

  • Do you feel restless or irritable when attempting to cut down or stop online gambling?
