Sports Betting: Love the game, not the gamble.

Friends keeping it fun

It can be enjoyable to place a bet on your chosen team or the big game, especially when you are doing it with friends or family.

Betting should not be a replacement for your hobbies or a way to earn income, and winning a bet should not be more important than cheering on your hometown team with your friends and family.

Remember to make a plan …  

  • Keep it fun
  • Keep it social
  • Set limits
  • Recognize the risk
  • Know when to stop

Know when to pause ... 

Online betting apps and platforms have made placing a bet easier and faster by letting people bet from the convenience of their phones at any time of day or night. With online sports betting, it is now possible to place multiple bets on your phone in real time as a game unfolds in front of you.

The ease of betting with a single click has led to a concern that people are placing more bets than before and are doing it faster, which can lead to developing a problem with gambling.

If you, or your loved one is in need of help with sports betting harms or worries, the PEI Gambling Support Line #1-855-255-4255 is available 24/7 for confidential assistance and support.
