Now most of you will probably be like me and have a bit of "can't be bothered" attitude but keeping an accurate log of how much money you gamble/ how much time spent gambling really can help you gamble responsibly. It can also aid you in winning more and limiting how much you play. We are all told by regulators in all the contries that people are from on the forum to gamble responsibly.

So what does gamble responsibly mean?

Gambling responsibly is classed as not spending more than you can afford to lose. Not spending too much time gambling that effects other areas of your life. Knowing when to stop! Managing a money, work and life balance.

How does keeping a gambling spread sheet help you gamble responsibly?

Keeping an accurate record of how much money you win and lose as well as logging how much time you spend gambling can help you to reflect. Reflecting on your action when you are gambling will help you to know when to stop. It also helps you see that you are actually gambling real money, it is far to easy especially when tilt is hitting, to just throw money away with caring of it true value or worth. ( I have done this many times) Keeping an accurate spread sheet not only helps you stand back from gambling a little bit, it also helps you to make much more educated decisions. Being able to reflect and actually see the time spent or money lost can aid you in making the right decision to either step away or maybe even fire one more bullet. Setting limits is key, on both time and money! This system really does work and once you have organized yourself and kept a record for a long enough period of time, you can start to check through your own data. Checking your own data of when you win and lose can help you win! Seeing when you are running hot and cold can be really advantageous to you. Because obviously you will play when you are in a hot patch or due one and you won't play if you are entering a cold period.

Setting yourself and getting organized really won't take long, just get a spread sheet program on your device and start keeping a record of wins, losses and how much time you spend gambling. I promise if you do this right and start paying attention to your own data then you will start to profit more. It would be great if people started sharing their own spread sheets on the forum to see if getting yourself organized can help you win. Good Luck all!

Responsible gambling apps can help with that. Responsible gambling apps can help set let limits like: 

A limit on the amount of money you can lose

A limit on the amount of money you can bet

A limit on how much money you put into a betting account

A cap on how long you can play in a session or day

Self-exclusion features to keep you from gambling at all

Reminding you to take a break

A spreadsheet also is a great idea because it is more hands on sometimes easier to access as everyone does not have access to apps

Sure, this will definitely help but I have the 'cant be bothered' attitude.

I think the betting should not be a way for a person to earn money, but only entertainment, otherwise it can all end badly.
