Whilst the majority of individuals do gamble within their means, for some, gambling can become a problem. As part of our commitment to promoting socially responsible gambling, the following guidance is provided for the benefit of individuals who participate in lotteries operated by People's Postcode Lottery:
- Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a way of making money
- Avoid chasing losses
- Only gamble what you can afford to lose
- Keep track of the time and amount you spend gambling
- If you are concerned that gambling may have taken over your own or someone else's life, then then please contact a service such as GambleAware, or call 0808 8020 133. Alternatively, a full list of organisations which provide help and advice is available at the Gambling Commission website.
- If you want to have a break from gambling, you can use our Self-Exclusion option
People's Postcode Lottery supports the Responsible Gambling Trust, a charity which funds the work of Gamcare. GamCare provides help, information and advice to anyone suffering with a gambling problem. For the facts about gambling, visit the GambleAware website.
