September is Responsible Gaming Education Month
Action Network Logo.
Here at the Action Network, we pride ourselves on advocating for building a healthy relationship with gaming.
While the thrills and highs of betting on sports — or any wagering activity — can be rewarding, it's important to remember that there are also lows.
September is Responsible Gaming Education Month, and nothing is more vital to creating that healthy relationship with gaming than understanding the principles of responsible gaming.
In partnership with the American Gaming Association, the Action Network is promoting Responsible Gaming Education Month.
While responsible gaming can't be completely defined by a specific set of guidelines or rules, there are certain principles to follow that can help ensure that one continues to build a healthy relationship with gambling.
At the forefront of responsible gaming is an understanding that a significant majority of bettors are doing so recreationally, rather than professionally. This means you shouldn't wager with an expectation of making money in the long run.
Of course, we all want to create better gambling outcomes, and the Action Network is committed to helping bettors do that, but it is key to maintain realistic expectations.
Additionally, bankroll management is another important factor in responsible gaming. Never chase your losses and have an established budget before wagering.
You should never be gambling with money that you can't afford to lose.
The Action Network's responsible gambling hub highlights this information and offers additional in-depth educational content, designed to help you be a more informed bettor.
