Gambling Addiction Test (Self-Assessment)

Harmful habits that seize a person can develop into serious psychological problems over time. Nowadays it is easy to get involved in the habit of gambling. If you or your relatives enjoy casinos or slot machines, it's time to take a gaming addiction test.

Gambling addiction (gambling disorder, pathological or compulsive gambling) is an impulsive control disorder. It will be very difficult for you to control your desire to play, even if it leads to constant financial losses, having negative consequences both for you and for your beloved.

No matter what state you are in a life, whether it is a high point or low point - your hand will still be drawn to make a bet.

No consequences will be taken into account. You may be aware of constant losses, but you will still continue doing it. If your behavior in the game violates both the quality and style of your life – it is an alarming problem. You have very severe problems with gambling if you can’t imagine your life without betting, spending all the funds every day, chasing winnings and losses, while not paying attention to what problems appear in your life. Other behavioral or mood disorders also cause gambling addiction. Stress, depression, hopelessness in life, problems of substance abuse, bipolar disorder, uncontrolled ADHD, depression or anxiety can be identified among such problems.

To find out whether you or your loved one are dependent on gambling, you need to answer the quiz questions below.
