Recently there has been a lot of press coverage about how underage gambling is on the rise. This is due to the betting industry using cartoon characters which appeal to under 18s, but also as it is easy to gamble online through your smartphone or tablets. Computer games have also said to be a source of gambling due to the way that you can pay for in-game extras to help enhance the gaming experience.

If you feel that you aren’t in control when it comes to gambling or are concerned about someone who may be gambling below are some charities and organizations which can help.
