Credit Card Debt Rises at Online Casino Sites
The United Kingdom’s Debt Advisor is warning people against the dangers of undisciplined gambling at online casino sites. Citing the use of credit cards at online casino sites as a major problem, the debt advice group has warned that increased debt problems will occur in the UK as a result of compulsive gambling at online casino sites.
According to the Debt Advisor, debts that often exceed one hundred thousand pounds sterling can be attributed to the cashless culture operating at online casino sites. The organization says that cards allow for uninterrupted play, which means that an undisciplined player quickly reaches his credit limit. While many online casino sites have staff that are trained to recognize compulsive gambling behaviors, some are accused of ignoring or minimizing the dangers associated with gambling addiction. Relationship difficulties, depression and conflict with family members, partners and employers are just some of the results associated with compulsive online casino gambling.
However, many online casino operators are concerned about gambling addiction, as Gambling Awareness Week in the U.S. recently proved. Several online casino firms got behind the event to express support for initiatives designed to reduce gambling related problems.
