What does the app do?

This app has information on what is problem gambling and a test for the users to assess whether their gambling is a problem. The test appears to be based on the Canadian Problem Gambling Index. The advice section comprises:

  • Mindfulness: audios on overcoming the urge to gamble, guided sitting meditation and tips on how to relax.
  • Self-help exercises: this section has a series of worksheets that the user needs to complete to help them understand their problem and figure out solutions such as a gambling diary, worksheets that help you identify gains and losses of gambling, triggers and what you can do to reduce it.
  • Limits and self-exclusion: describes features of websites that allow you to set limits.
  • Access, time and money: offers advice on practical barriers to gambling. 

For the complete app description, go to the App website , Google Play or the App Store or for a complete review, see Reviews.
