Whether it’s sports-betting, casino games, lottery tickets or online poker, gambling continues to grow in popularity and has become more easily accessible than ever before. For many, gambling is a harmless form of entertainment, but for some, it becomes a crippling addiction that can destroy lives and families.

Problem gambling is a progressive addiction characterized by an increased preoccupation with gambling, a need to bet more money, bet more frequently, difficulty when attempting to stop gambling, ‘chasing’ losses, and loss of control demonstrated by continuing to gamble despite serious, negative consequences.

Problem gambling can affect anyone, regardless of position, education or income. But there is hope – there is life beyond a gambling problem. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-333-HOPE or text HOPE to 61222. Treatment is available free of charge to qualified Minnesota residents.
