Problem gambling and gambling problems
Behbet would like to promote gambling as an enjoyable leisure activity and can only remain this way if you stay in control and gamble responsibly. But we are aware that sometimes some people have problems and gambling becomes a problem. The most common ones are
User: If I continue to gamble, my luck will change, and will bring back all my lost money.
Reality: Each time you bet, the result will be completely independent of the outcome of the bet. This means your luck in the game is not better than the first game. Each time you gamble the bet still has a chance to lose.
User: I almost always win; so, it's my right to win.
The fact that you have almost always won does not mean that you will win every time, the result of the next gambling will never be affected by the outcome of the previous gambling outcomes.
User: If I play more than one slot machine or poker machine at one time, my chances of winning will increase.
Reality: Of course you can win with more than one game, but do not make mistakes, which is just as likely to lose you. Please keep in mind that you will play as much time as you can, as much as you can win and lose.
User: I have a specific strategy that will help me win. In the lottery, I select certain numbers and click on the stop button in the slot machine at a specific time.
Reality: The result of most games, especially the slot machines and slot machines, is quite random, which means you will not be able to change these results in any way. In betting on the same numbers at each game time, you will not increase your chance of betting on different numbers, for example, the ratio of the Lotto score is 49/6 per game of one game in fourteen million. No matter how many people have bought tickets or how many numbers you play, in any case, the ratio is the same. Whether you win a slot machine, it's only based on the numbers randomly pulled out of the slot machine, which are the same numbers that even specify the game's loop even before the pause. Clicking the stop button may speed up the detection time of the game, but it will not affect the result at all.
Believe me: If I find out that a card is raised several times in the poker game, I have to bet on it because, as a matter of chance, that card will rise again and soon.
Reality: There are 2.6 million possible hands in a 52-card category. Since each hand is independent from the previous hand, the odds of rebounding a card are less or more than the odds of any other card.
User: I have a lucky feeling, I know that I will win today.
The reality: Hope, wish, or even the need to take money, in no way affects the outcome of a game of chance.

Tips for making gambling safer.
For people who are still willing to gamble, there is a set of general principles that reduce the risk of gambling problems and help them gamble more securely.
Do not consider gambling as a way to make money. The important point is that bookmakers, such as casinos or the Internet, are established to receive more money than they pay. This means that over time, the number of your losses will be more than your winnings. But keep in mind that this rule does not only bookmakers or casinos but to all gambling industries. All users have the chance to win big amounts..
In fact, people who have a problem with gambling mistakenly think that they themselves are great winners, such a belief will only add to their problems.
Always gamble responsibly with the amount you can afford to lose, for example, the amount you have for your daily fun, such as going to the cinema,ect. If you lose it will not affect anything serious.
Never gamble with the amount you consider for your important outgoings, such as rent, billing, bills, tuition, etc.
Limit the stake of your game.
Before the game starts, specify the amount of money you can pay if you lose, this is your stake. If the prediction loses, you lose your stake and the bet is finished. If you win the bet, then enjoy the winnings but remember that you will not win every time..
Set the time limit for your game.
Set the time period for gambling and leave the game whenever you reach the time limit.
Never insist on making up for your losses. If you've lost money, do not try to beat that amount again by going beyond the limits you set for yourself, as this usually results in heavier losses.
Do not gamble at times that you are upset or depressed. It's very difficult to make decisions when emotional.
Try to balance your gambling and other life activities.
It's important to enjoy other activities too, because there is more to life than gambling.
