Many South Australians participate in some form of gambling for entertainment, but for some people it can lead to harm to themselves and the people around them. People from all walks of life can find their gambling harming their finances, relationships and health. Young people can be especially attracted to online and sports gambling which can cause problems for them. Many people have false beliefs about gambling which encourage them to keep going – that their machine is due for a win or if they keep going their luck will change. Understanding how different forms of gambling work, the probability of winning and that most are games of chance, can help people change their gambling.
