What’s more important than the bets you make tonight? What can possibly be more important than the team you bet on avoiding key injuries and getting the calls to go their way?
That’s easy. What’s more important than any and every bet you make is ensuring you have a strategy in place to gamble responsibly. This doesn’t just mean managing your money, being disciplined, and only betting on what you can afford to lose. Every state has a department that specializes in responsible gambling. There’s also a hotline available 24/7 you can call to get any help you may need. The number for the national hotline is 1-800-522-4700.
In addition to these tools, many of the biggest sports betting/gambling companies offer ways to manage deposit limits and the amount of time you spend on the app. You’re also able to pause your account for any length of time you may need.
There’s nothing more important than ensuring you have a plan in place. Being responsible is always the biggest bet you will make.
