Tips to keep it fun

How many of these do you know?

 Play for fun, not to make money.

When you gamble, the result is never certain and losing is always a possibility.  So look at gambling as entertainment, like going to a movie, and not as income.

Learn how the games work before playing.

The more you know about the games, the better equipped you are to make informed decisions before and while you play.

Set limits and stick to them.

Keeping it fun means playing within your limits.  When you set money or time limits before you play, you are more likely to stick to them.

Take frequent breaks.

Once in a while, it’s a good idea to take a break from playing. It can help you make smarter decisions, so gambling stays fun.

 Accept losses as the cost of entertainment.

Chasing losses almost always leads to bigger losses.  Chances are, the more you play, the more you’ll pay.

Balance gambling with other types of leisure activities.

Make gambling just one of the things you do for fun.
