"If the lottery jackpot seems too good to be true, I'll take a chance every now and again. Scratch tickets are fun too, but I rarely win."

Gambling is: The act of risking something of value, including money and property, on an activity that has an uncertain outcome. Gambling does not solely take place in a casino. Examples of gambling include:

Problem Gambling: Gambling behavior that results in problems with work, school, family or finances, but does not meet the number of criteria to be recognized as the more serious diagnosis of “compulsive/pathological gambling”.

It is important to recognize that gambling often comes at a substantial financial cost. If you gamble frequently, or even only occasionally, make sure you are comfortable losing the amount of money you choose to play with.
