As all the other dependences, gambling is characterised by:

  • Craving, the sensation of uncontrollable desire to gamble at any time and about anything.
  • Abstinence, feeling of restlessness associated with physical and psychological symptoms that manifests itself when you are not playing.
  • Addiction, the need to gradually increase the amount of time spent playing.
  • Specific feature of the players is the gambling, that is the tendency to overestimate one’s ability to calculate the probabilities and at the same time to underestimate the expense that should lead to a win.

The psychological consequences are serious.
