For a better understanding



Gambling is up to chance and predictions. Chance is an uncontrollable element for human. Attraction for this type of games is the result of a profound belief that by observing well and understanding the logic of a game, it is possible to predict the end and to win over the chance. This feeling of imminent victory pushes the person to continue gambling.


Different money games and gambling:

  • Video lottery;
  • Poker;
  • Scratching lottery;
  • Bingo;
  • Etc.

Gambling becomes an addiction when the player plays too often, for long time and spends too big amount of money. The temptation becomes too strong and playing becomes an obsession for the player. The pathological player risks to see its addiction having harmful consequences on its personal and professional life.
