Test yourself

The questions below can be used to give you an idea of whether your gaming behaviour is in the danger zone.

The self-test is taken anonymously and we do not save the results.

Do you constantly think about playing?

Do you have to play with larger and larger sums of money in order to attain the desired feeling of excitement?

Have you tried and failed many times to control, limit or stop your gaming?

Are you restless or irritable when you try to limit or quit your gaming?

Do you play to avoid thinking about your problems or to find relief from distress, for example, feelings of helplessness, guilt, fear, depression?

Do you often return another day, after having lost money, in order to win back previous losses?

Do you lie to the people close to you, to therapists and other people in order to hide the extent of your gaming?

Have you committed a crime, such as forgery, fraud, theft or embezzlement, in order to finance your gaming?

Have you jeopardized or lost an important personal relationship, position, education or career opportunity because of your gaming?

Are you counting on others to arrange money for you to solve a financial crisis which may arise as a result of your gaming?
