Gaming Addiction

Responsibility on both sides!

Player protection and self-help

Most people play for their entertainment. Playing to a reasonable extent and within one's own financial ability is completely harmless. For a small portion of the population, however, gambling is no entertainment, but a serious problem.

What is a gambling problem?

Problem gambling is defined as gambling behavior which causes harm to the existence, the work, the financial situation or the health of an individual or their family. This means that playing for an individual life in the long run has nonconformist and negative consequences. Pathological Gambling is considered, since 1980, as an independent mental disorder image in the international classification systems DSM-IV and ICD-10. It is defined as a persistent, recurring and often even increased gambling behavior despite negative personal and social consequences such as debt, breakdown of family relations and impairment of professional development.

For gaming disorders to be diagnosed, the behaviour pattern must be of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning and would normally have been evident for at least 12 months.

When will this conduct be regarded as problematic or addictive behavior?

We would like to emphasize that a diagnosis in terms of problem gambling can only be made by trained specialists. This site offers materials that make it possible to assess one's own behavior and to reconsider. A particular difficulty with non-substance-bound addictions is that the transition from the desire to addiction is easy to overlook. But there are certain warning signs that may indicate a problem. In the presence of at least five of the following features a serious addiction problem can not be excluded:

  • The player is heavily occupied by gambling. The thoughts turn constantly to the games.
  • The stakes are getting higher.
  • Attempts to control the play / abandon, are unsuccessful.
  • When trying to cut down, the player becomes restless and irritable.
  • The games are used to escape problems or unpleasant feelings.
  • The player is chasing losses.
  • The player lies about his gambling.
  • The player undertakes illegal activities.
  • The player threatened or lost important relationships.
  • The player relies on the gambling money.
