Responsible Gaming at Indian Games and Casinos
At Indian Games and Casinos, we are committed to providing a responsible gaming environment for all our players. Gambling should be an enjoyable leisure activity, but we also recognize the potential for gambling to become a problem for a minority of players. We take this issue very seriously and offer a range of measures to help maintain control and ensure that gambling remains enjoyable.
Recognizing a Gambling Problem
Gambling becomes a problem when it negatively affects any aspect of your life, including financial health, personal relationships, and emotional well-being. If you are concerned about your gambling behavior, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you gamble to escape from personal problems or to relieve uncomfortable feelings such as guilt, anxiety, helplessness, or depression?
- Do you chase losses or gamble until all your money is gone?
- Have you lied to family members, friends, or others about how much you gamble or how much money you lose gambling?
- Have you missed work or other important responsibilities due to gambling?
- Are you relying on gambling as a significant source of income?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, it might be time to consider seeking help.
