What is Gambling Addiction?

When gambling starts to dominate a person´s life…

Gambling has become an acceptable and regular part of our society. Gambling is entertaining, it’s exciting – and there’s money to be won. If you’re lucky, of course, which only very few people are!

Gambling is synonymous with risk-taking. But the greatest risk is not that you may lose a lot of money. If gambling becomes excessive, you risk, in fact, losing your quality of life as well.

Compulsive Gambling can be defined as a progressive addiction characterised by frequently repeated episodes of compulsive gambling which dominate a person’s life at the expense of family, vocational and social values and commitments.

A domino effect

Various studies show that for every compulsive gambler, an on average of 5 to 10 people are affected, directly or indirectly, by the problems brought on by ludomania.

In other words, ludomania is an addiction with far-reaching consequences, influencing much more than the gambler’s own existence and quality of life.

Everyday life at stake

The gambling market has exploded within the last 10 to 15 years. This can be seen in turnover figures and in the vast number of gambling options available. Today, gambling is possible 24 hours a day, every day.

New technology and aggressive marketing activities have contributed to the size and continued growth of the gambling market. We place bets as never before. A few of us are lucky – and win. Most of us just keep hoping. And some buy their hope on credit.
