No matter how successful you may be at playing games that require skill, or games of chance, unless you manage your money well, you can still end up spending more than your budget.
Wrest Point is committed to being a leader in our community in relation to problem gambling.
For most of us, gambling is simply an enjoyable recreational activity that we participate in as a social form of entertainment - if gaming stops being fun or starts to impact on other parts of your life you may have a gambling problem.
A couple of handy hints to keep the fun times fun
- NEVER gamble with borrowed money.
- Only spend what you can afford to.
- Set yourself a limit and stick to it.
- Never try & win back your losses after you have reached your limit.
- Listen to your family and friends; they may see something that you don’t.

Wrest Point encourages people who have acknowledged that they have a gambling problem to use our Self Exclusion Program. If you would like to make use of our program please just ask one of our security officers.
