Warning Signs

Know the warning signs of problem gambling

Most people who participate in gambling do so responsibly and for entertainment.  There is, however, a small percentage of the population whose gambling behaviors become damaging to themselves, their family or their workplace.

More recently, the National Opinion Research Center of the University of Chicago recently completed the first-ever national (U.S.) survey on problem gambling prevalence.  According to these prevalence studies, the problem gambling rates are generally about 1% of the population.
