DON'T GAMBLE YOUR LIFE AWAY

Statement on Responsible Gambling

The Hong Kong Jockey Club has a long-standing commitment to provide world-class horse racing, betting and sporting entertainment. The Club also has a long-standing commitment to provide betting in a socially responsible way.
The Club's gambling activities serve to bring social and economic benefits to Hong Kong. Most people gamble in a controlled way as a form of leisure or entertainment. However, a small but important proportion gamble to excess - both through legal and illegal channels - and can be considered problem gamblers, causing damage both to themselves and to society.
Problem gambling varies in severity, but frequently leads to family relationship problems; financial difficulties; job problems and a range of emotional disorders.

These signs can indicate that you have or may be developing a problem with gambling:

  • Do you find gambling affects your work or family life?
  • Do you argue with others about the amount you gamble?
  • Do you often gamble for longer than planned?
  • Do you often gamble more than you can afford?
