Limiting exposure may be helpful for people who are at risk. • Public exposure to gambling, however, continues to increase in the form of lotteries, electronic and Internet gambling, and casinos. Intervention at the earliest signs of pathological gambling may prevent the disorder from getting worse.

  9. What kind of people become problem gamblers? • Anyone who gambles can develop problems if they are not aware of the risks and do not gamble responsibly • When gambling behavior interferes with finances, relationships and the workplace, a serious problem already exists
