Beat the Bet

There are some great tools available to help you to understand how sports betting works and connect you with support.

When does sports betting start to cause harm?

Are you spending more time watching the odds than the action? It might be time to get back to the real game and ask yourself these questions.

Are you:

  • spending more money or time on betting than you’d planned?
  • betting more than you can afford?
  • chasing losses or needing to bet more to get the same feeling?
  • borrowing money or selling things to get money to bet?
  • neglecting other areas of life such as relationships or work?
  • having health problems caused by betting including stress or anxiety?
  • having financial problems caused by betting (e.g., not being able to pay bills)?
  • feeling like gambling has taken over or feeling guilty about betting?*.


*70% of young men who participate in sports betting experience harm from their gambling.
