Self-Assessment

Assess Your Gambling – Online Tool

How do I know whether my gambling is a problem? Often people don’t recognise the warning signs. Gambling doesn’t usually start out as a problem, but if you’re starting to recognise it’s causing issues and assess your gambling over a short questionnaire.

This self-assessment is known as the Problem Gambling Severity Index (PGSI). The PGSI is a reliable and standardised measure of at risk behaviour in problem gambling. By completing the PGSI you will develop a better understanding of the severity of your gambling behaviour and begin to take steps towards getting help.
