This is a so-called behavioural addiction, in which no psychoactive substances are consumed, but excessive behaviour leads to a change in biochemical processes and consequently the psychological state, which can result in an addiction.

The forms in which gambling occurs are manifold: slot machines, gaming tables in casinos and casinos (e.g. blackjack, poker, roulette), lottery, (sports) betting, and many more. Money is played for, and the outcome of the game is (usually completely) dependent on chance.

The availability of gambling on the internet increases the risk of gambling addiction.

The loss of control that characterises addiction can lead to debt, existential worries, psychological stress and even suicidal tendencies.
