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.
When you gamble, think about the type of game you’re playing. Your choices can make it easier or harder for you to stick to the Lower-Risk Gambling Guidelines.
