Problem Gambling

Whilst we’d love as many people as possible to support us by playing the Wales Air Ambulance Summer Raffle, helping members of the public gamble in a responsible way is even more important. Please make sure you bear the following in mind:

  1. Gambling should be entertaining and not seen as a way of making money
  2. Avoid chasing losses
  3. Only gamble what you can afford to lose
  4. Keep track of the time and amount you spend gambling
  5. If you need to talk to someone about problem gambling then contact GamCare. GamCare is a registered charity that provides confidential telephone support and counselling to anyone who is affected by problem gambling. GamCare can be contacted confidentially on their helpline on 0808 8020 133. You can also visit the GamCare website for more information and advice. gamcare.org.uk
