Screening Tool: Problem gambling

This survey is designed to provide a quick assessment of whether you might have a problem with gambling. However, no test is 100% accurate. No matter what your score is, you should seek help if you have any concerns about yourself or your loved ones.


The questionnaire used here is the Lie-Bet Tool.

1. Have you ever felt the need to bet more and more money?
2. Have you ever had to lie to people important to you about how much you gambled?
