Mohegan Sun recognizes that for most people gambling is a social or recreational activity, something that is fun and entertaining. For others, gambling can cause problems and becomes uncontrollable and is no longer a choice. Mohegan Sun is committed to educating our employees to recognize problem gambling behaviors and providing guests with information and resources to help themselves and others.
Tips for Safer Gambling
BE HONEST WITH THOSE YOU LOVE ABOUT THE TIME AND MONEY YOU HAVE SPENT GAMBLING
If you find yourself struggling to be honest about what you have spent or how you are spending your time, consider getting some help.
EXPECT TO LOSE AND TREAT ANY WINNINGS AS A BONUS
Treat gambling just like going to a concert or going out to eat, do not expect to get your money back at the end.
HAVE OTHER HOBBIES AND INTERESTS
Make sure that you keep up with other activities, so that gambling does not become your main pastime.
SET A TIME LIMIT AND STICK TO IT
Decide on a time when you will leave the venue or website, to help you stick to your budget.
QUIT WHEN YOU ARE AHEAD
Do not assume you are on a lucky streak and keep gambling.
When It's No Longer A Game
Problem gambling is any gambling, betting, or wagering that causes family, financial, legal, emotional, or other problems for the individual, their family, or others. Gambling problems can be mild, or quite severe, and can worsen over time.

- Have you ever borrowed money and not paid it back as a result of your gambling?
