Casino Pauma takes the issue of responsible gaming seriously. We also know that most people who gamble do so in a responsible manner and use it as a form of entertainment. We encourage guests to enjoy their recreational gaming activities by staying within their budgets and means.
It is a fact that some people suffer from the addiction of problem gambling. Compulsive gambling is a serious illness that strikes people of all ages from all walks of life, but it can be treated. To assist you in developing a better understanding of responsible gaming, we encourage you to consider the typical signs someone who has a gambling problem:
By definition, a compulsive gambler is a person whose gambling causes increasing and continuing problems in his or her life
• Inability to stop gambling, knowing they should quit • Vowing to stop with the best of intentions, but never doing it • Financial, work and/or relationship difficulties increase as a result of gambling
We support the California Council on Problem Gambling and their comprehensive programs which benefit chronic gamblers. If you think you or someone you care about may have a gaming problem, we encourage you to seek help.
The first step to getting help is recognition and admittance that you may have a progressive illness of compulsive or addictive gambling. Gamblers Anonymous and other programs designed specifically for people with gambling problems (and other addictive or compulsive problems) effectively help thousands of people each year. You or your loved one must know there are effective programs that do work.
