The Dangers of Problem Gambling
There is a danger to gambling for the first time. I’m not a medical professional, so I cannot explain this danger as well as I would like. Here it is: You don’t know how you will involuntarily react to gambling until you do it the first time.
It’s kind of like that first alcoholic drink. With it, some people immediately realize they are an alcoholic. It can ruin lives and doing something about it successfully is a life-long endeavor.
I don’t mean to scare you. Not at all. Many people find recreational gambling to be quite entertaining. But others find it to be disastrous when they discover, often quite out of the blue, that they are compulsive gamblers.
This can be hard on everyone they know. So, I have a few things to share about it.
First, it helps to understand that casinos will reprimand or summarily fire employees if they take it upon themselves to tell a patron they are spending too much money and should go home. That’s just the sad truth.
On the other hand, advertisements all over casinos explain how to get help. It hardly matters that such ads are a legal requirement of all gaming commissions.
Second, I don’t actively encourage non-gamblers to gamble. I assume anyone who finds my content is deliberately looking for information on slots gambling.
But, if you decide you want to gamble, then I take it as my responsibility to explain how to do it.
Third, there truly is a Golden Rule of slots play. Here it is: Don’t spend money at a casino playing slots which you cannot afford to comfortably lose.
That means you’re only spending disposable income, which is money left over after you’ve paid all your primary bills along with setting aside an additional amount into your savings account of choice.
Summary of The Golden Rule
The golden rule of gambling is this: Never gamble more than you are willing to lose. For slot machines, never have an initial bankroll larger than you can comfortably afford to lose.
