Types of Gambling

When gambling, what you play matters.

Some types of gambling, such as electronic gaming machines or online poker, are:

  • Faster paced;
  • Involve frequent betting;
  • Encourage you to play more often;
  • Encourage you to play for longer periods of time; and
  • Encourage you to spend more money.

Other types of gambling, such as lottery tickets, of which you might buy one a week, are:

  • Slower paced;
  • Less intense; and
  • Involve less spending.
