Problem Gambling

A small percentage of people have issues with problem gambling. IsOnlinePokerLegal.com takes this seriously and urge anyone that suspects they may be developing patterns of problem gambling to seek help.

There are organizations in various countries which will provide advice and assistance. Here are two of the best known.

GamCare (UK):GamCare is the UK’s national problem gambling hotline. They offer moderated chatrooms, a confidential phone advice service and a lot of information. Face to face counselling is also offered. You can reach GamCare at www.gamcare.org.uk or phone them on 0808 8020 133 (from inside the UK).

National Problem Gambling Helpline: This helpline is for US based gamblers. They offer a central helpline that can advise you and, if needed, put you in touch with local services. This is available to all 50 states, Canada and the US Virgin Islands. Text and chat services are offered alongside the phone line – and everything is 100% confidential. You can call 1-800-522-4700 or access them via www.ncpgambling.org

If you are unsure of whether you show any signs of problem gambling, you can find a self-assessment questionnaire at the UK based GamCare site.

People from all walks of life can develop problem gambling symptoms. The best way to deal with this is to seek assistance early.

Information About the Various Areas of Our Website

This site has a lot of practical information for online poker fans seeking great games at legitimate and legal poker sites. The nature of online poker is that things change, sites grow while others close down, bonuses change and new payment methods come online. This section outlines the different parts of the site, and how to get the most from the ever-changing information there.

Poker Sites: Some poker sites have been online for 15 years or more, while innovative new sites are being launched all the time. Which poker sites you play at depends on your location. US players will need to head to offshore sites, while players in regulated markets will sometimes find country-specific sites. I recommend you read our article on Rogue Poker sites. This will show you what to look for in a legitimate site before you play.

Payment Options: Getting your money safely into and out of online poker sites is another process which is affected by your location. There is a lot of innovation in this area, with Bitcoin being the latest method for US based players. While setting up and account at an eWallet service is quick and easy, not all of these work for every country. The Poker Payment Options section here will explain all.

Poker on Mobile Devices: You can now enjoy poker on tablets and smartphones, as well as desktop computers. Of all the areas of legal online poker, this one shows the most diversity in terms of how well mobile gaming is handled. The best sites have amazing iPoker and Android options, the worst have limited access or none at all.
