Congratulations! The simple fact that you’re reading this section proves that you have the responsibility required to keep your eSports betting habits in check.
We don’t want to moralize or be paternalistic; we just want to remind you of a few simple concepts to always keep in mind.
How to avoid addiction to gambling on eSports betting?
We’re not educated nor trained in providing this kind of advice but it is seemed so apparent and so simple that we decided to share it voluntarily:
- Don’t play using money that you need elsewhere,
- Don’t borrow money in order to play,
- Don’t bet while under the influence of drugs,
- Don’t bet to 'make up' for your losses,
- After a loss, take some time to reflect on the situation,
- Set financial limits and time limits in your betting activities.
Remember that in England addiction to gaming of any kind has been recognized as an illness for many years now. When a person feels that they are getting sick or that they are not well then they consult a doctor, meaning a professional.
