We believe strongly that betting should be fun. If this isn't the case for you, then you should stop. If you are concerned about the amount of time or money that you, or someone you know, is spending gambling, there are a number of organisations that may be able to help.
Set a monthly budget before you spend. You should never bet more than you can afford to lose. Here at CompareTheLotto.com we’ve created a Bet Budget Calculator so you can work out your monthly budget.View Bet Budget Calculator
