Responsible Gaming in Marina Bay Sands

ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR GAMBLING BEHAVIOURS?


Here is a quick check:

  • Do you think about gambling every day?
  • Do you hide your gambling from loved ones?
  • Do you ever borrow money to gamble?
  • Do you let bills go unpaid?
  • Is your gambling affecting your work or your role as a parent?
  • Do you think you can use skill to win on a gaming machine?
  • Do you gamble to forget your problems?
                                                                                        

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be having difficulties with your gambling behaviour.*

SIGNS OF PROBLEMATIC GAMBLING BEHAVIOUR

Most experts agree that there is currently no reliable way to identify problem gamblers just by looking at them; however, it is important for each patron to know some warning signs. These warning signs may include, but are not limited to:

  • Preoccupation with gambling
  • Gambling with increasing amounts of money in order to achieve the same level of excitement
  • Becoming restless or irritable when attempting to cut down or stop gambling
  • Repeated unsuccessful efforts to control, cut back, or stop gambling
  • Gambling as a way to escape from problems, or to relieve guilt, anxiety or depression
  • Returning to chase losses after losing money gambling
  • Lying to conceal the extent of gambling
  • Jeopardising or losing a significant relationship, job, or educational or career opportunity because of gambling
  • Relying on others to provide money when in a desperate financial situation due to gambling
