Gambling Support Services – International List

Wherever you live, you can access support for gambling problems. The websites below offer support and guidance, as well as forums where you can discuss your gambling or just read the experiences of others.

If you find you are gambling more than you want to, most online casinos will now allow you to exclude yourself for a period of time. This could be the perfect way to reduce your gambling.

Be sure to make use of the tools that allow you to set responsible gambling limits on yourself – in many cases these can be all that you need to control your gambling and can remove the ability to over-spend!
