What is gambling?
Actually there is no single, clear cut definition of what gambling is but it is widely agreed that:
- Two or more people agree to take part in the activity (usually an operator and the person who wishes to gamble)
- Normally money (the ‘stake’) is paid by the loser to the winner
- The outcome is uncertain
- The result is determined at least partly by chance
- Participation is an active experience but can be avoided by not taking part.
What is Problem Gambling?
Problem gambling is an urge to continuously gamble despite harmful negative consequences or a desire to stop. Problem gambling is often explained by whether harm is experienced by the gambler or others, rather than by the gambler’s behavior. Severe problem gambling may be diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling if the gambler meets certain criteria. Pathological gambling is a common disorder that is associated with both social and family costs.
