BetMGM Player Limits & Responsible Gambling
Of course, responsible sports gambling remains of the utmost importance for not only BetMGM but for ESNY as well.
The colorful logo located in the top-right corner of the website is where BetMGM lays out its responsible gambling message. How BetMGM encourages the identification of a potential sports betting problem is something that deserves applause.
What is problem gambling?
Like many other addictions, compulsive betting is rooted in an uncontrollable urge and obsession, which if left unchecked, can lead to financial hardship.
Unfortunately, one of the most common symptoms of this disease is deception; problem gamblers will go to great lengths to hide the problem, not just from others, but also from themselves. As a result, detection can come late after adverse consequences are revealed and with dire consequences.
The warning signs:
- Sacrificing time from work or family in order to gamble
- Repeated inability to stop or control betting
- Borrowing money to gamble or to pay off previous bets
- Use of gambling as an emotional escape
- Self-neglect or neglect of family due to gambling
- Lying about time or money lost to betting
- Gambling more in order to recoup previous losses (“chasing”)
- Obtaining money for gambling by selling/pawning personal property
- Feelings of hopelessness, depression or suicide
