I searched for and found some tips on how to gamble responsibly from the Responsible Gambling Council.
I think anyone who enjoys to make a punt whether just every now or then or as a regular form of recreation, should check these out. Its a particular important site for players new to online gambling.
At the end of the day, if you don’t have the money or can’t afford to lose it, then simply don’t gamble. It’s just not worth it.
