Gambling really is a mug's game!

While the impact of increased gambling activity has worn off somewhat as the recession drags on there is no doubt there was a significant increase in both traditional gambling and for example the lottery when the UK first entered the economic downturn. It seems as though many people were willing to take a last throw of the dice to try and win that life changing sum of money even though the odds on winning the lottery jackpot are some 14,000,000 to one.

If you are in serious financial trouble there is no point in throwing good money after bad and looking towards the likes of horse racing, football and other types of gambling because ultimately they will lead you down a path which can be difficult to leave. If your financial situation is becoming worse and the pressure is mounting it is time to take professional advice rather than leave your future in the lap of the gods and the next horse race at Ascot.

Ultimately there is no easy fix when looking down the barrel of financial oblivion and there will be difficult decisions to be faced and difficult choices to be made. Keeping a clear head and keeping yourself focused are vital if you are to recover and keep your head above water. Wasting money on odds of millions to one may sound like the dream scenario if it comes true, but this is unlikely to happen.
