BettingLounge is committed to promoting gambling in a fun and responsible manner while helping people stay in control. We take regular breaks from our betting tips and encourage our followers to do the same.
We believe gambling should only ever be for fun, and should never be seen as a way to make money. Be wary of any person/company claiming to make guaranteed profits as it is highly unlikely and potentially a scam.
Below you will find tips and advice for gambling safely, and responsibly and how to keep it fun. Also, we have posted links to professional help if you are concerned about your gambling, or if you are concerned for any of your friends or family.
Almost all UK bookmakers will have tools to help you stay in control, and gamble responsibly.
Of course, there are other signs to look out for, and it can be difficult to admit or know if someone has a problem with gambling. But, know you are not alone, and there are plenty of services out there to help you.
