RESPONSIBLE GAMING...
 
For many people, wagering on thoroughred horses is exciting and entertaining.  They make thoughtful decisions about how their time and money are spent.  PSYHORSE.COM has a responsibility to promote responsible gambling for all racing fans using our products.  Here is a list of tips suggested by Churchill Downs, Inc. to follow for responsible wagering:

• Balance playing the horses with other leisure activities.
• Do not "chase" losses.  Accept them as the cost of entertainment.
• Use extra income to wager, not money needed for everyday expenses.
• Do not wager more money at any time than you are willing to part with.
• Set a time limit.

Responsible wagering is what many people practice when they visit the track or betting parlor.  In fact, responsible wagering is the most cost effective for the entertainment value.  For some, however, wagering or gambling can become a problem that they are unable to control, ultimately leading to self-destruction.  This can lead to a pattern of compulsive gambling.  It is pathological when one cannot resist the temptation to gamble, when one cannot stop regardless of their jobs, families or anything else.  How can you tell if someone or yourself has a gambling problem?  Check the following symptoms of pathological and compulsive gambling:

• Loses time from work, school or family life in order to gamble
• Gambles until all the money is gone
• Gambles to win back money lost through gambling
• Lies to hide gambling activity
• Boasts about winnings but is vague about losses
• Fails time after time to reduce or stop gambling
